The Beverly James Dickerson in my tree, b. abt 1820 was the son on Beverly James Dickerson and Nancy Jane Watts. Probably born in KY, he lived with his family in Washington Co., KY until before 1860 then became a tavern keeper in Jefferson Co., KY (see 1860 census). He died in about 1863 in Illinois, killed probably because he was a rebel. His wife was Martha and he had numerous children, some of which may have gone to Howard Co., MO. I'm interested in sharing information on the Dickersons.
