Dykemans of New York and Nova Scotia

Dykemans of New York and Nova Scotia

Posted: 15 Jun 2003 3:21PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Dykeman, Dikeman, Hinxman, Whitman, Gates
I'm looking for the ancestry of Jane Dikeman or Dykeman. She married Charles Hinxman in Nov 1783 in New York (per NY Provincial Marriages), and they became founding settlers of Digby County, Nova Scotia by 1785.

I'd like to encourage any researchers with information on their family, or that of parallel families in these surnames, to drop me a line. Maybe we can help each other out! I'm also researching the Whitman/Dikeman connections in neighboring Annapolis County, NS, for my Gates line.

Sparse re:New York and or Boston,MA Dykeman (Dikeman)

A 'ROPE WALK BUSINESS' at Boston Harbor was owned
and operated by my grandmother's father. [don't know first name] His daughter was Camilla C. Dikeman born circa 1839 Boston - d. 1899 California. She married William Francis Howe in either NY or Boston in 1869 or 1870.
Not much - I wish I could offer more.

Walter, I took a quick look through the indeces of Marjorie Chamberlain's "Johannes Dyckman of Fort Orange and His Descendants Vol. II" and Romer and Hartman's "Jan Dyckman of Harlem and His Descendant's" and found no reference to either a Camilla Dyckman or William Francis Howe. I will look through some of my other material and see if I can come up with anything. Happy hunting! Nancy Dykeman, Board Administrator
