About Barbara Dixson

E. Keith Fitzgerald M.D.s early research always showed this woman: Barbara Empey, as the daughter of Henrich Empey and Catharina Rombach/ Rambough.
I have seen a Barbara Empey w/ Christening date of 4/29/1792 as having 

parents: Henrich Empey and Anne Hamblin.

For now, we will leave the parentage as it stands.
We know that John Dixon was her 2nd marriage, as Barbara and John are buried together in Dixon Cemetery, Stormont County, Ontario, Canada.
