Gravestone: Dixie Marie Dorsey

My paternal aunt
Colbaugh Cemetery, Hindsville, Madison, Arkansas

Dixie Marie Dorsey, daughter of Ina McGINNIS and Fred Dorsey, was born with Cerebral Palsy. According to my Aunt Brenda, Dixie’s birth took a really long time. The first six weeks of her life, Grandma fed her with a eye dropper. Brenda also states that Grandma Ina cried that entire six weeks.

The following news clipping regards Dixie but I’m not sure if it occurred at her birth or if it’s a separate event.
