Obituary of James Dickson, farmer; born November 19, 1918; died October 3, 2008.
James Dickson, who has died aged 89, was a countryman born and bred with a great appreciation of the sights and sounds of nature.
He was also remarkable as a churchman: an elder for 61 years and the longest-serving session clerk of St Margaret’s Parish Church, Dalry. His exact minutes were often written for posterity as were his recordings of “lost” crofts and farms of the Ayrshire parish.
