Hi,I am in direct line with this same robert dickey his fathers name was just Dik. I have found no birth date or even who roberts mother was. However through some research I have found that the name dik is pictish. They often would take a first name and use it as a last name. I am planning a trip to scotland next year. I am hoping I can find some more info when I am there. My great grandfather was william bascomb dickey. Anyway I know its not much info but its something to maybe help you out. Good luck in your search.
