I do not have a birth or marriage certificate for either Caturah or John. I have not yet tried for birth certificates for their children. I have not seen any Clutes listed near the Dicksons on census records in Brooklyn however I just found some Clutes listed with Dicksons in Middletown, NY. There is a Jacob Dickson buried in the same lot as Mary Dickson, who I am told is Johns mother. I found a Jacob Dickson on the 1860 census for Middletown, NY and the following Clutes are listed on it as well: Eliza, 30, Erastus W., 34, Ellen, 5. The Dickson/Clute names on the census are just too much of a coincidence so I am trying to see where this leads.
