I am trying also to find anything about the Dickens/Dickins family of Person Cty (and Caswell) in the 1700s and 1800s.
I know: Col. Robert Dickens married Mary Brown. He was sent to America to establish a business branch of his family's mercantile firm in London. He was here well before 1776 and was a patriot during the Rev. War. Mary was the daughter of an Englishman of the Tidewater area of VA and moved to Caswell Cty NC in a part that became Person Cty later. They had Jesse, Elizabeth, Sally, lucretia, martha, Pathenia and Samuel.
Jesse married Frances Moore, daughter of Stephen. Samuel married Jane Vaughn of Mechlenburg Cty VA. He represented Person Cty in the Legislature and was a member of Congress from the State. He had 9 children by Jane and later married Frances Burton. The name has changed from Dickins to Dickens over this time. This is from the Heritage of Person Cty Vol. II 1983.
This is nice but I have no dates and I would really like to find Mary Louise Dickens who married James Dunlop Baird in Person Cty Jan. 19, 1860. I would like to know who her parents and siblings were.
