Dixon Mitchell was a son of Judge David Mitchell and Martha 'Mattie' Black. He was born 18 Feb 1806 in Darby Township.

Dixon and Mary had seven children before her early death. About 1849, Dixon married a second time to Electa Currier from Vermont. Dixon and Electa had two children before Dixon's tragic death. On 6 May 1869, Dixon was run over by a freight train near Milford Center, when riding in a horse drawn buggy.
