It looks like his father went by a number of names, after looking through census & death records. The same person is listed as Richard Dyre Tally Slatton, Dixson Slatton, D T Slatton, Dick Slatton, Dyre T Stattan & Dyori T Slatton on various census records. His father's obit can be found here:

Name: D T Slatton
Birth Date: abt 1846
Age: Age 89
Death Date: Abt 1935
Location: Woodruff
Publication Date: 14 Mar 1935
Publication Place: Greenville, Greenville, South Carolina, USA

Doug was on the same track as I was. I found his death certificate in which another son named him as Dickie Slatton. That sounds very much like Dixon. I agree with Doug - one and the same.
