Pearl Dawson was an only child.
At one time Pearl Dawson's father was the ship's chef on a Great Lakes ore liner. Recollection of James Dawson Nixon:
Pearl and her husband, Lloyd, spent their honeymoon on the ship John J. Barlum. Pearl assisted her father who was chef, and Lloyd assisted the purser of the ship.
Thought her father was shot and killed in a robbery, she was a strong opponent of the death penalty.
Pearl married Rev. Lloyd Hinman Nixon, son of Rev. William Gay Nixon and Jeannette Sherman, in 1915 in Imlay City, Michigan. (Rev. Lloyd Hinman Nixon was born on 22 Dec 1893 in Owosso, Michigan and died in 1952 in Flint, Michigan.)
