190 GREATER DALLAS AND VICINITY
Sallie (Epperson) Dickson, both members of old and well known families
of the Lone Star state.
Captain Joseph J. Dickson was a prominent lawyer, and for a number
of years prior to his death was the law partner of Governor J. W. Throckmorton,
under the firm name of Dickson he left
surviving him his wife and two infant children.
In 1876 Joseph M. Dickson was appointed a cadet at the U. S. Naval
Academy at Annapolis by Colonel D. B. Culberson, then a distinguished
member of Congress. Young Dickson graduated in 1880, at the age of
nineteen, but after a short service in the Navy he resigned, and then studied
at the Harvard Law School. In October, 1882, he settled at Dallas, and
was soon thereafter admitted to the bar, and has ever since then successfully
practiced his profession.
Mr. Dickson is unmarried and makes his home with his mother, with
whom also live his sister, Mrs. Henry Exall, Colonel Henry Exall and
their son, Henry, Jr.
Mr. Dickson has never been a candidate for any public office, but has
been much interested in civic affairs, and has been especially interested in
the Public Library, of which, since its organization, he has been the treasurer
and the chairman of the administration committee.
Dn. JOSEPH H. REuSS, proprietor of the Marsalis Sanitarium and a
leading surgeon and gynecologist of the southwest, is of an old and substantial
Bavarian family and son of Dr. J. M. Reuss, a widely known
pioneer and a brave Confederate officer, as well as an able practitioner.
The elder physician was a native of Wurzburg, and after receiving his
literary and medical education in that city left Germany for Texas, as a
member of the famous colony of his countrymen which, under Prince
Braunfels, located at old Indianola in 1846. He arrived at an epochal
period in the history of the commonwealth, as it had entered the Union but
the year before and all its civic and social institutions were in their formative
state. Within a few years, however, the community which he had
joined. was ravaged with an epidemic of yellow fever, and, brave man as he
was, he not only devoted his strength of body and mind to the work of
relief, but while fighting the pest carefully investigated it, putting forth
papers on its nature and treatment which are yet prized by leading members
of the profession. At the outbreak of the Civil war Dr. Reuss joined
the Confederate service as a captain in Hood's brigade, and made another
characteristic record for bravery and brilliance. He then resumed the
practice of his profession at Indianola, and when the gyeat tidal wave of
1875 swept over the place he, with most of his fellow survivors, moved
further inland. Dr. Reuss located at Cuero, where he continued in practice
and established the first drug store of the town. He was thus actively
and successfully employed until 1905, when he came to Dallas to live with
his son, Dr. J.. H. Reuss, at whose home he died of old age March 17, 1908,
