I hope you are still active on this board. I just came across this entry today. This Adam and John Dickey who started the linen bleaching business in Culleybackey is an ancestor of mine back seven generations. My mother was a Dickey. She and a cousin of hers researched this line back in the 1970's. I was just last night reading the account of our cousin Grover Clevland Dickey who researched the line back in Northern Ireland. Much of the information in this thread matches what he wrote in the 70's. This John Dickey who started the linen bleaching business migrated with his children John Jr, Alexander, and Jane to Charleston, SC in 1772 on the James and Mary. They were part of the party that left Ireland at the behest of Rev. William Martin. My line comes down through Alexander Dickey son of the John Dickey who started the linen bleaching business in Culleybackey. Please reply if you want more information.
