Another find in Red River Co, Cemetery book:

"Dickson, James A., b: 1858, d: 30 Nov 1925, CEM: Clarksville, LOC: Sec 4, NOTES: DRI# 40821 has death as 30 Nov 1925, OBIT: TCT 9 Dec 1965 '40 years ago' County Treasurer in RRCo TX, died in his home on South Walnut Street in Clarksville, From RRR page 299, married Manerva Patton in 1881, From Jolly Funeral Home Records book 3 page 232: born in Calloway, KY on 26 Nov 1853, a son of John Dickson, resident of Clarksville died there of heart failure"

"RRR" is Red River Recollections, and it is a great book, lots of family genealogy and stories.

Also in RRCo marriage records:
Could this be your Martha Dickson, age 2 in 1860 cencus?

"DICKSON Mattie M. m CD GRAHAM on 12 Nov 1878 Book D Page 362" (She would have been 20 years old)

In Cemetry Records:

"Graham, C.D., b: 4 FEB 1854, d: 1 Jan 1880, CEM: Cuthand, LOC Northwest, EPITAH: REMEMBER FRIENDS AS YOU PASS BY, AS YOU ARE NOW, SO ONCE WAS I, AS I AM NOW, YOU SOON SHALL BE, PREPARE FOR DEATH AND FOLLOW ME"

"Graham, Martha, M., b: 12 Jan 1858, d: 18 Jul 1881, CEM: Cuthand, LOC: Northwest, NOTES: Wife of T.C.D.,EPITAH: SHE DIED AS SHE LIVED, TRUSTING IN GOD"

I found a couple of Mandy Dickson's that married, but no Mancy's,, one to a Jerry Sloan 9 Jun 1896, and one to a W. M. Lockhart 26 May 1894.

Just starting my research. My husband's mother is martha Dickson Cherry. She was born inCherry, Red River Co, TX 1921 to Ralph Bernard & Maude Florence Pendergrass Cherry.
She said the middle name ws a family name on her Mother's side I believe. I will print your message and ask her to clarify, but can you shed an light on this?

Maude Pendergrass was born to William Manly Pendergrass and Mary Murphy, 1889 Sevier Co, Arkansas.

thanks

Sorry.

Gregory,

I just throw this out to you as a possilbe link to your John DICKSON.

A fellow I call Raccoon Creek John DICKSON died in Dickson Co. TN ca. 1821. He had 10 children Robert, Joseph, Hugh, James W., John, Jr., Adam, Jane (m. Tharp ESTES), Margaret (m. David COWAN), Sally (m. Benjamin CUMMINS) & Polly L. (m. GOODRUM).

While your John DICKSON (b. 1828) would not be a child of Reccoon Creek John DICKSON, he might be a grandchild.

Robert DICKSON appears to move to Madison County TN dying n the early 1830's. His oldest son William P. DICKSON ended up in Red River County TX. I don't think Robert had a son named John.

James W. DICKSON moved to Carroll Co. TN. His wife was a LATIMER. He moved to Red River Co. TX about 1836 so he is not a candidate as being the father of your John.

Joseph DICKSON moved to Carroll Co. TN. He also married a LATIMER. He died ca. 1830. His four minor children are found in guardianship papers in Carroll Co. TN. Again...no John. The widow married a MOORE and I "think" they moved to Red River Co. TX.

I have no idea what happened to the son Hugh.

I "think" Adam DICKSON stayed in Upper Middle TN. I don't know the names of children.

The best possible connection might be through the son John, Jr. who I believe also moved to Carroll Co. TN and remained there for some years. This family history is a recent discovery and I haven't had time to pursue the children of John, Jr.

Just an idea of a possible connection since so many of the people in this DICKSON family ended up in Red River Co. TX. Most of the children of Raccoon Creek John DICKSON were having children of their own in the 1828 time-frame.

These are my ancestors. Would be glad to share what I know and would love more information on John Baker Dickson's parents. I have Alexander Dickson and Elizabeth Baker, but not too much other than those names.
