> I am descended from the Thomas Dickson who married Salatha Kinsey in
> Co, GA, 7 Feb 1811. His family was listed on the 1830 Census in Hancock
> Co, and in 1840 they were listed in Talbot Co (as Dixon). Thomas was
> probably the son of the Thomas Dickson who died in 1827, at least a Thomas
> appears in the estate records. The other children of Thomas (Sr) were
> Josiah, James, Rutha, David, Lucinda (married Henry Rogers), Green
> Washington, and Lurana (married James M. Warthen) who are named in what I
> have seen of the estate records and John, Nancy (married Thomas Eubanks),
> Mary (married Lemuel D. Smith), Margaret (married Exra S. Howard), and
> Melinda (married William B. Warthen) who are also reported as children.
> I found the family listed in "The Georgians, Geneologies of Pioneer
> Settlers", by Jeanette Holland Austin but there are some statements that
> conflict with other information. Summarising the book, Michael Dickson Sr
> was in Lunenburg Co, VA and Caswell Co, NC. His sons are shown as Michael
> Jr and Josiah. Josiah died in Person Co, NC, Michael Jr moved to GA by
> 1793. He had land in Effingham and Washington (became Hancock) Counties,
> and died 1803.
> Michael Jr's children are named as John, Benjamin, William, Curry, Cyrus,
> David, Sarah Elizabeth, Lucy Crawford, and Thomas. John was executor of
> estate so he is probably correct. A Thomas Dickson was named as an
> appraiser of the estate so unless there was another Thomas that is
> questionable. Also, Thomas is confused between father and son -- his
> marriages show Selita Kinsey, which is correct for the son, and Anna
> in Wilson Co, GA, who must have married some other Thomas (Thomas Sr's
> was Elizabeth).
> Can anybody add information to help sort out this family?
