COLONEL WILLIAM DICKINSON.

Colonel Dickinson is the only son of William Dickinson, Sr., who was one of
the leading salt makers of the Kanawha Valley for over fifty years. He was
born in Bedford county, Virginia, but has spent the greater portion of his
life in Kanawha. He is now upwards of eighty years of age, and is resid~ng
upon his magnificent farm on the Kanawha river, fifteen miles above
Charleston. He has a princely estate, and seenis to enjoy himself in his
retired farm life. He never would accept any office never owed anybody
anything, always lived up to his promises, and has the respect of all persons
who ever had any dealings with Dim. Kanawba has no better citizen than
Colonel William Dickinson, and no kinder hearted gentleman ever lived in the
Valley of the Great Kanawha. He always looked at the sunny side of
everything, and therefore necessarily enjoys life.
