This a passage from "History of Opelika..." by Rev. Cherry, on pages 223 & 224:

"His William Trotter's second wife, "Aunt Frankie," who died in 1882, gave him one child, a son, Mr. Reuben Trotter, who is the only one of his children living in the county representing his revered name.  "Aunt Frankie," as she was affectionately called by all, far and wide, after Mr. Trotter's death, married Mr. Brown Fuller, who still survives, residing at the old homestead where he moved in 1860, and is a worthy successor of his predecessor, dispensing the same hospitality and enjoying the same love and confidence.  He was raised in Greene County, Ga., and has a daughter in Merriwether County, also, a son in Blackshear, in that State.  Mrs. William J. Brewington, Sr., of Salem, is his granddaughter, as was also the late Mrs. Vora Hooker, wife of Mr. Wm. H. Hooker of T HE OPELIKA TIMES, and well and favorably known to the reading public as "Fida."  She was a talented and rising young poetess, striking out with a broad conception of the beautiful, in a path seldom trod by those we went before her, and in a style which in its distinctive peculiarities, would, had she lived placed her in the galaxy of original authors; which as is known to the best critics, is small in comparison to the number who claim to be so classified.  Frail in body........this piece goes on & on to say that Vora died in 1881......Mr. Fuller had a daughter still living with him.  Speaking of "Aunt Frankie," the late Mr. Brown Fuller, her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Reuben Trotter, who is a niece of Mr. Fuller, pays this affectionate tribute to her memory:  "She raised five children that were related to her only by marriage -- three of my husband's father's grandchildren and two of my father's grandchildren, and I am one of the number.  So, she raised her son's wife.  Every child knew her only to love her, and she was known and loved as "Aunt Frankie," by all.  The path leading to her grave is well beaten."\\

Meriwether County Sketches

"John T. Dixon, M. D., a physician of note in Meriwether county, and a man of fine business ability, is a native of the county, born in 1837, the son of John L. and Elizabeth (Gorley) Dixon. The former was a native of Hancock county but an early settler of Meriwether county, where he died in January 1892. His parents were Harry and Ann (Hines) Dixon, Virginians, who early settled in Georgia. Mr. Dixon served in the war of 1812. The father of Dr. Dixon's mother was also an early settler of the state. Dr. Dixon himself passed his early years on the farm, obtaining his early training in the old log school house of his district; then he attended the Greeneville school, and finally the Colinsworth institute. In 1861 he enlisted in Company E of the Twenty-eighth Georgia regiment, under Capt. Moore. In the battle of Seven Pines Mr. Dixon was badly wounded and returned home to recruit. During the twelve months he was away from the army he took a course of medical study in the Virginia Medical college, at Richmond, and then went into the hospital service for the remainder of the war. He then entered the medical college in Atlanta, from which he graduated in 1866. Having received his degree, Dr. Dixon returned to Meriwether County, and established himself in the practice of his profession at Woodbury, in which he has had great success, his practice being widely extended and very lucrative, and he is highly esteemed throughout the community. Dr. Dixon was married in 1865, his wife being Miss Celeste E. Hussey, a daughter of Hiram and Sarah (Edwards) Hussey, of Meriwether County, where Mrs. Dixon was born, in 1844. She was a constant member of the Methodist Church, south, and died in 1891, leaving her husband with seven children; Sallie, Mary I, Emmett E., John L., Harry, Joel T., and Nellie. In 1892, Mr. Dixon married Mrs. H. H. (A.) Hinton, who was born in Meriwether County in 1838, and is the daughter of Brown Fuller. Dr. and Mrs. Dixon are both faithful and consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
