PREFACE .., ......

One regrets exceedingly that the efforts to obtain the dota of all of the descendants of Joseph and Elizabeth (Nuzum) Dickinson hove failed. Many fomilies are represented by names only. Visiting each family to obtcin the details hps been impossible. While some heve been indifferent or negligent J other members of this excellent fo.mily have been most helpful rnd - to. all of them our 路 thanks ond Ctpprecil1tion are given. One onnnot filention all of t hem by nome. But the cont inuing inspirction for the proseoution of this work hos been Mr,. Hadley Vi. Dickinson of Bollefontnins, Ohio. Without his constant intorest, labor and encourogoccnt it would not hnve been accomplished. Credit is given to some of the others in the record of their families. Without consciousness of the part they wore playing in the devQlopmcnt of our country, these honest, industrious and God foaring people hnve boon the backbone of our prosperity and by their attitude toward lifo and citizenship they hcve seen our notion grow from its establishmont to its present groatnosa. They deserve ~ll honor Dnd cpprooi~tionJ oven though none of them attainod high position in our governmont or n~tionnl roputntion. This work h~s been n ploQsuro and its fruition in this imperfoot history is ostoemed as on cChievmont. Wauseon, Ohio

Trndition and Early



IN The yo~r 776, there appocred rt the court of Hnlfdan Huilbcin, lung of Norway, a soldier of fortune, d rver, u nntivo of the Uplands. Burke, in his Extinct Pecrago, says ho wns of noble birth end n direct descendant of the dignified hero, Thor. Prof. ?hilip H. Dunh~m of tho University of Oxford, in his "History of Scr.ndnnovia" snys he wes originally n shopherd, end followed his flocks and herds up the craggy nnd icebound sides of tho sucshntten, ~ .snow-crownod poak, which lifts its mighty hood 8000 feet flbovo the seD. One doY' as ho fed his flocks on tho lowlands, n roving bond of Nbrthnon, struck by his grart hoight ~nd npporcnt physicol strongth, captured him nnd took him off to sea. HGro ho followed nn cdvcnturous lifo for mony, during which~ It is said he visited the coosts of Icelond nnd Groenland cnd ovon reached tho coasts of Now England, e country peopled by de scendant s of his, no orly 0 thousand yo nrs l .':'!tcr. Be this as it nay, just c. thousand yeors prior to the indepundonco of Aucricn, Iv~r sudd~nly reappeared in Norway cnd prosented himsolf ot the Norso King's Court. Being of hondsone presonce nnd stnlwort bUild, and moreovor, hcving achieved c reputation thB t rJD do his nam.o fGr:1oUS throughout Sco.ndc.nevin, he was welconod with open urns by the r.go d [lonorch, tho lost 00.10 descendant of the greet Wodon, thct occupied the throne of Norway. Dissensions wore continually taking place at Court; rival chiefs wero aspiring to tho crown; and tho , old king wes fillod. wi th apprehensions lest tho crown of his cncontors should be wrested fran hin. He hrd but one Child, a daughter, Eurittou, the darling of ~is old agc; a oniden with blue eyes and golden locks - n striking oont»ost to the bont forn cnd white locks of her aged siro. The oppeorcnco of rvor at Court, howover, soon chc.ngod tho nspe ct of affairs. Halfdc.n connissionod hin gonoral of his orny, end by his powerful Did, ord~r was soon rostored. But estill greoter honor Qwoited this advonturous child of fortune. The lovely Eurittc8 was given to hin in norriGge and tho birth of their son, Eystoin, in 780, wns f.mde thc occnsion of grof·t rCjoic'ing throughout Norway. By 0 royol decroc the infant prince was ncdc the suc cossor of his venerable grnnd siro who died cbout 790. Iver becnn.e r8gcnt during his son's f:1inority, who ~sslliled the reins of power about 800. After n long end prosperous reign, during which he raisod Norwoy to n height of prosperity novor before attained, h~ diod in 855, le~ving issue J three sons thct we Imow of ~ First, Harold, his successor; socond, RogeIW/old, of whoa hereafter; third, Mfllnhulo, ancostor of tho groet Norr1!'n house of Dc Tocui, hereditary stnndord bonroT's of Nornondy, fron a younger son of WhOr.l, who s()ttle d ct Lindsui, County Essox, England, tenp. Vf111ion the C-onqucror, springs the noble Scotch house-of Lindsey, Eorls of Crawford Dnd Balcarrus.


Rogenwald was born about the year 820. By his father he was created Earl of Maere and Raumdahl, in the Uplands, Norway. When his brother Harold Harfagr succeeded to the throne of Norway in 855 he beca.m.e a firm ~upporter of the t monarch in his plans to subdue the independent chiefs of Norway, and was largely inztr-~~mental in establishing Hereld as King of all Norway" He als~ leo .a lerR;8 fleet again&lt the ' Drkney B.nd Shetland l~la.nd S J which. 1I.e W. l"estQd f ram 1JtJ.e dom.inion of th~ King at S~·Dt s! ~. nd oy fiarcld iNa£ c.reat',e'o.

Forsyth says he was one and tb.i .:rty ye£lrs old when he died, but the best du, tlhu~:rities say h.~ was ' ninety. His tomb wos discovered during; "(·he. ] atter pa-rr. {;Ijf the last century while some repa!!'£ were b8 .i .ng mad~ in. Rosslyn Cnapol, ho left issuo four sons. j

:D'irst - Rogenwald, Earl of Macro and RalOdahl, in tl)e U~lands.

Socond - E~"ner, Sc;oond Earl of Ol'kney. His 6reat great granddaughtor, Mprgarot, Countess Palatine of Orkney, married Madoc, Eerl of Athole, son of Earl Mehacro, who was n younger son of King Duncan First, of Scotland, and a brother of l"Io.lcolm Cunmore, thus carrying the title to the royal lino of Scbtland. Third - Manifred, who conquered Denmark, nnd was the great grondfathe r of Crnute, King of Donmark and Ellgland. Fourth - Rolf, of whom more hereaftor. Rolf, or ~s he wns more familivrly known, Rollo, was one of tho most adventurous princos of his [·go. Ho was born about tho yenr 850. At an onrly age ho took command of a largo float of ships nnd sot out on n pirnticnl cruise. He first modo descents on the coosts of Scotlnnd, but tho sturdy Scotch soon sent him ~bout his business. He next tried the oastern cnd southern COGsts of Englrnd, with equal success. He then enterod the mouth of tho ScheIdt and rnvogod Frioslcnd. But e more inviting field soon offered itsolf to his repccious grasp. France was ct th~t time groaning under the miserable; rulo of the imbecile successors of Cha rlemenge. In 876 ChArles 10 Chuuvc (tho Bald) was King of Neustrio. His throne was beset by insurgent nobles and princes. Rollo soon become aware of this stEltc of nfftirs, ond in NovE;mbcr 876, he entorcd the mouth of' tho Seine, and soon conquerod Rauen, which ho made his ho~dquQrters, but ChorleS bought him off in 877. In 881 ho again enterod Franco Dnd was defeated ot Snncourtj but strnngo to say, the Fronch bocame domoralized at the close of the dey end enabled Rollo to collc«t his sCQtterod forcos and retire in good order. Ho rucoptured Rouon, July 25, 882, but rotired before the close of ' too ye c.r to Norway. ·

3. In the fall of 885 he again ent ered Franc e and sai ling up the Seine laid siege to Paris. Ti!e siege lasted from November 25, 885 to October, 886, when Charles bought Rollo off for BlOO in silver. For the next three ye ars Rollo assisted his father, Earl Rogenwald in the subjugation of the Orkne ys, but in 889 he once more visi ted Franc e 9.11d. overran Brittany, and once again he was bought off and retired. For the next fourteen years we lose sight of nollo. He is said t a have been one of' those adventurol1.8 North-men Who visited the coasts of Newfoundland and New Englana. vd.tb. Eric the Red, in 901-2. In 903 he again made his appesraf)ce in ll"r8.l1cG and burned Tours but soon. retired. In 911 he si~ge to Paris a second time. Charles 10 Simple (the ~lmpJe) wns now King. His advisers sow the folly of treating w.i.-Lb tho fiorce Northm0n in the old weyand by their advice , Charles sent the Archbishop of Rauen to offer him th'e of his dQugh~or, Gisolo, in marriCtge Gnd nIl the oountr y 'Del,ween the seQ (Englj sh chennol) th0 rivers Eptc, ond Aure, sn.d the tront~ers of Ma~ie B~d Brittany.

Joseph Dickinson and Family 1 • Turning now to statements by the correspondent of the Inquirer, we are infonmed that a daughter of this Isaac Taylor, then in or near Concord, became the wife of Nathaniel Newlin, a memb er of the Assembly a nd grandson of Nichole s rJewlin; em tmt their doughter Mttry married Gc.ius Dickinson, whom she fir st sow in Lancaster County on the oce.asion of her morri8 ge of he r uncle Isaac Taylor, Jr., to M"ry Bulla x x' x. In the first place, Nathaniel Newlin,. the fother of Mary Dickinson, was not a member of the Assembly, though his grand father of t he some name was, EI rxl hms grandson djd not marry the daught er of Isaec or any otm r TI-'ylor. Again 8S Mary Newlin and Gaius Dickinson were married in 1757, it seems improbr.ble thv.t their first meetiIl@' should have occurred et the tim~ o~ TtJY1or's marriege to r~1Gry Bulls, which was in 1761.

After the donth of Joseph Dickinson, Jo.o. 24, 1832, t he land was acquired by his son, Richrrd Nuzum Dickinson then passed to his son, John H. Dickinson. Then through his daughter Alice Edna Dickinson, who married Joseph ~. Miller, it passed to their son, Elmer J. Miller. who is the present ,1941) owner, So it remains in the Dickinson family. III the Logon County- history referred to above, p.408. we find tho following story: "While Joseph Dickinson lived in Zo.nestield(in the spring of 1812.WHM) on his first coming to tho county, His ExcGllency Gov. Meigs visitod Zcnesfield with his stotf for the purpose of inspecting tho blockhouses and other defences of the post. It was resolved to make his visit tho occasion of Q grand reception nnd Grandmother Dickinson, than whom none knew better how to spread an excellent repast, was charged with the dut,y of providing for the creature comforts of the Governor and his attendants. The arrangements bade fair to be carried out in good order. The soldiers belonging to the blockhouse with the arned Ind ians were drnwn up in line ani received their distinguished visitor with a grand salute whose echoes rolled down the valleys bringing a horseman in hot haste from tre extreme south end of the county supposing the post had . suffered an a ttack from t he enemy. But what was the mortification of our excellont hostess to be compelled, while his Excellency was making his round of insI6 cti on, to observe thE) imperturbnbl!' brQ~es trom time to time gra.vely enter her cobin ond unceremoniously appropriate such of the viands as suited their fancy until when tho hour arrived for her honored guests to dine thero was nothing lett but such screps ' as the dignifiod red men de~med unworthy of the ir a ttent1 on".

Gai us (Joseph, Gaius, Joseph in America, Daniel in Ireland, Dante ::' in England) Born Feb. 23, 1783 in Berks county, Pa., oldest son of Joueph and Elizabeth (Nuzun) Dickinson. Moved with the fe&iJy to Harrison CO' I (now) W.Va. in 1802, where he paid taxes in 1806, the only year checked. Moved to Logan Co., Ohio, with all of the family in 1811, thence to CIa rk county, Ohio. Married, Dec. 4. 1804, in Harrison Co., Va., her mother consent ing, Mary Hall who was born , daught er of Richard and Mary (Nut ter) Hall.

Thomas Nutter of Nutter's Fort IE ar ClarksbiJ_rg, (W) Va. The Halls lived in Harrison Co .. on Coon's Run. As a result of this ~arriage we read in the reco~d of the Redstone Meeting of Friends for April 1, 1808: "Gaius Dickinsbn complained of for marriage to one not a member ,and mus toring. Disowned June 3, 1808 ft • Vie have not (1940) been able to find the parentage of Capt. John Hall or his former residence. Nor have we found the record of Phoebe Ogden-Nixon, his wife. Phoebe was a name frequontly found in the history of the prominent Ogden family of New J'orsey and Maryland. One assumes that the hyphenated name was acquired by a previous marriage to a Mr. Hixon.

down on the prairie and sleep for fear the Indians would come to the house in the night. I moved from that place in 1813; moved i-'3 the head waters of Cherokee; put up a small house and oovered it wi. th. ..bcll~k; here I had bad luck; I throwed a splinter at my mare and killed tel':'; the wolves killed all of my sheep. I laid off ~ hat while cuttin$ a big tree and cow ate that up; and that night, having no door but jUSlt a place cut foj(' one, tho cow came along and drew my pants out and ate tnem up (being all I had); I felt a little discouraged; and the next day the cow ate bucIDeye leaves and she diad; whilo hly wifo and I \lore skinniJ)$ tho cow the cabin got on fire and burned everything we had.

I~. Dickinson, at the time of his death, had living 10 children 85 grandchildren and 120 great grandchildron and 2 great great grandchildren. Judge Bennett said the funeral was the largest he had attended for many years - the procession be~ one mile in length. The funeral services were conducted by Roverend John D. Elliott assisted by his estimable lady, being of Quaker denomination. .As NlI'. Dickinson always held to their manner and form of worship he did not make a loud profession of religion but had ' certain religious rules that he always adhered to. He pitied littleness, loyed goodness a~d admired truthfulness and greatness.

His record ns a neighbor, a ,ci tizen <llld a soldier, and in every capaci ty of life is too well mown to need any eulogy at my hands. And us the long procession moved out, it could bo observed that many distinguished persons wore prescnt, and as tho long line of procession moved along many persons stood by tho roadside with uncovered路 heads, eager to catch a glimpse of the procession that was conveying to its last resting place tho remains of one of the noblest men of earth. He was buried in the burying grounds of th e Quakers no~r tho placo whero he first sottled on coming to the statc by tho side of his venerable wife surrounded by tho Quakor friends.

The following is quoted from The Baskin History of Logan County, 1880: Joseph N. DicKinson, farming, stock rasingand milling; F.O. Zanesfield. Among the prominent men of Jefferson Township that have worked their way from poverty to wealth and affluence solely by their own exertions is J .N.Dickinson ~"ho '.;-las born in th:is township Karch 27,1816 on what is nm'>l knm-vn as the Shoots property, situated one half mile south of the ~own of Zanesfield. His fathe r , Thomas Dickinson, \,/as born in Berks county,Pa., Nov.13,1788 and emig rated to this locality prior to the War of 1812 • Hi s ""ife Vias Mar ia Lowe, born 1789, a nat i ve of Virginia, and' bore her husband fifteen children, Joseph .being the fifth child and second son of this number. The IiJaj:.or portion of th~m livEd to maturity. Thom~s ~las a constant resident of this township up to the time of his aecease which vIas in his 91st · year, May 17,1879. His wife's death occurred in 1867. The year after Joseph was of age he hired to, his fathtr, applying his earnings as a payment upon 75 acres which he had purchased in Rush township which was nearly all improved. Jan. 21, 1838 he vvas married to Mary Ann CO!'IJ/in, ' -lho is e. native of Monroe tO~inship where she was born Feb.5,1820 on the banks of the Mackachack. Locating on his land after marriage, he r~mained until 1841 ,hen he moved on the place he nOvT oHns, staying one year, and in 1842 removed to Andrew county, Mo., where he angaged in farming and stock raising for six years and returned to this county 1848. The following spring, 1849, he purchased 196 acres of land in Bokes Creek tQwnship where he moved and soon added 500 acres to his first purchase where he farmed, raised stock and run a sawmill until 1860, when he moved into Hardin County where he owned at one time 1700 acres of land. During his eight years of reSidence, wishing to curtail his bUSiness, he disposed of his interests and removed into Monroe township where he purchased 159 acres of land and the Jeffrey Williams mill property which he carried on until 1876 when he moved one half mile north of Zanesfield and purchased the Folsom mill property and 471 acres of land. He has since traded for the Baldwin mills, a short distance south, and now controls and runs both mills Which are among the best in the state for size and location - the ' Folsom mill having a fall of 30 feet. This mill ha.s an extended reputation, custom reachip~ them 30 miles distant. They are prepared to do both custom and merchant work; can run year round either by steam or water power. Mr. Dickinson has now 550 acres of land which, in connection with his mills, represent a large amount of capital, all of which Mr. Dickinson has attained solely through his own merits. Of the fifteen children born to him twelve are living: Hannah (Mrs.Ben Bruce); George; John; Thomas; Mary (Mrs.Randall); Ellen (Mrs.George Henry); Laura ·(Mrs.John P.Williams); Gardner; Amanda;; Benjamin and Joseph at home. Though he is a Republican he is not an extremist in politics or religion. ,.

But now ~ childhood runs to waste, my sins how great their sum; Lord give me pnrdon for th& past And strength for days to come. And now I lay ' me ~own to sleep Let angels guard ~ head, ~~d through the hours of darkness keep 'I'heir watch around my bed. With cheerful heart I close my eyes, Since God will not remove, And in the morning let me rise RejoiCing in His love. ~

______•____~----T~~~-Dickinson and Descendant_s_____


December 3,1882. \Vhen his brother Nelson and family moved to Missouri and set tIed in eithEr And.L'ew or Nodaway county, I am not sure which, Duncan was 18 years of age. Nelson and his family wanted someone to come with them so decided for Duncan to go and they moved through in a wagon. After Nelson and his family had been in Missouri a few years they decided to go back to Ohio, and did so, but Duncan had gotten a piece of land by that time and VIas, in a ""ay, fixed to live on it, so did not go back \l ith his brother, but remained on the land for a while, hoping for the country to be settled up. But it did not improve to any extent and as he lived so far away from anyone andbecame so lonesome, he finally decided that such a life was not worth living and that he \lould do some oth(;r way.; In the summer season the snakesdould craw'l in his house sndoften vlhen he VTould come ~~n at night :'ie would hear the whirr of a rattle snake before he could make a light. Wolves were also very numerous at that time and filled the night air v{ith their continual howling. It looked as though the land \lould never be worth much and there was no market for farm oroducts. So one cold, wintry night when the Him -"las blowing and the wolves were howling around his little cabin, he decided to go vfuere he could live among people. He had a team of oxen and he put the yoke on them the next morning and departed, driving them until he had a chance to sell the outfit. Then he walked to Lexington" 11.'10., and there , found \lork by doing anything he could 'lay his hands to. It Has not long hovever, Lmtil he got in with a man who was hauling freight off the boa~'s up int 0 the tOVTn. Then the great flood of 1844 came and that is I.\{hen he made the acquaintance of Julia Ann Carpenter, our mother. Her parents and family lived in the bottoms near Camden and had to get over to Lexington in a skiff or drown, but they made it safely through the angry 1I1aters. Julia Ann, our mother, was sick at the time with the measles and was not able to sit up. Our father, Duncan Yvas there helping rescue people from the water. He helped get mother out of the skiff or canoe, I do not know which, and cClrried her up the river to a house. After the water went dovm and the people moved back to the bottoms, father got to chopping 'd ood over there and became mCllI'e acquainted wi th Miss Carpenter and later were married. They lived the t' greater part of their lives in Missouri, but went back to Ohio a fe \ 1 times, staying a year or more each time, but alvrays returning to II.I is souri. (During one of these vi si ts to Ohio, the , twins, Amanda Eliza and Samantha Rebecca~ ',vere born, June 15,1865, on the farm of Thomas Dickinson. W.H.M.) They raised a large family~ six girls and five boys, all of Whom are living at this date, June-25,1910, excepting one little sister, the second born, \ Jho died in infancy~ We cannot be thankful enough to our God and our parents that we have l;>een permitted to enj oy the blessings of such a family, as it certainly lis a great pleasure to me to think of the pleasant timEs together. Our mother was only permitted to live about 45 ~ears,which was the worst blow of our lives when she died, but 'l Ie have always had the consolation of knovling that our mother ',l iaS prepared to meGt her God in oeace e_ OUr father liv·ed to be over ;18 Y6ars old and ,fe can be '-


proud of him in many \/ays. In the first place he was a good?father to his family and is yet spoken of in the old neighborhood as being a good neighbor and useful man. The same is also said of him aJ,.l over this country IJfhere he lived ' so long, especially by the old soldiers who· ·were his comrades in· .the war. When I go to one of their funerals one of them always says that he was as brave a man as they ever saw, but that he was merc'i ful to his enemies and always inspi~ed with the very best principle in everything in which they saw him tried. He was a member of the Dunkard church and tried to do eve~J­ thing his God wanted him to do, and left undone the things He didnot want him to do. Our mother was a member of the Christian church and Vie can only think of her as near a perfect person as any of us can be. kip~

DUNCAN M. DICKINSON by JASPER DICKINSON Duncan McArthur Dickinson was born December 3,1822 on a big hill, one mile north of Zanesfie ld, Logan county, Ohio .. His father's name was Th.Jmas; his mother's name we.s Marie, her maiden name being Lowe. They were both born and raised in Virginia. Duncan McArthur grew to manhood on his father's farm in Ohio. At the age of 20 he \vent with his brother Nelson, to . Northwest Missouri, ;" Talking most of the way, carrying his clothes in a knapsack, a distance of 1100 miles. He remained with his brother for a while and then started in search of work... His first job was cutting a set of house logs for \vhich he received $3.50. There Vlere forty logs large enough to square 12 inches at the top, 20 sixteen feet long and 20 twenty feet lono". His next job was at Lexington,Mo. There he got a job of driving a team. He commenced work at $6.00 per month, but soon had his wages raised to $10. He worked there for a while, but it was only a short time until his employer died, after which he commenced cutting cOlrd wood, "'forking at that about two months. Then the river CRme out and he, Hi th some uther wood choppers, made a raft out 0f logs and \/ent to the bluffs. One evening while the people were standing on the hill at Camden,Mo., the~r saw coming dovm the river a flat. . boat loaded with people and ~ousehold goods. It came quartering across the angry waves and landed on the bluffs near Camden. In that boat was a little girl sick Vii th the measles. When it was knovffi that she Vias stricken with the contagion, the crowd stood back, but Duncan. v/alked up and put a blanket about her, took her in his arms and carried her to a h ~ use nearby. He made the assertion th~t he loved her from thG time he took her in his arms. The girl's name was Julia Ann Carpenter and she was about 19 years of age ·,{hile he was 24 at this time. She was born in the same county in Ohio that he vms and came to Missouri with her pnrents when eleven years old. Her mother was dead at this time and she was living with a married sister. They became more acquainted and the next7ear this pretty romance culminated in a happy marriage. Soon after being married they went to Nodaway county, where Duncan's brother lived, and bought 40 acres Df land. The next

Ihomas Dickinson and Descendants



Hi' bnother's wife became so homesick that they sold out and went back to Ohio, but only remained in their home state one year. Duncan had become too much attached to the great prairies of Missouri to give them up and they came back and settled in the northwest part of Carroll county.. They lived there until the spring of 1855, and then sold out and went down into the eastern ~art of the county and bought a quarter section of land near where Bosworth now stands. In 1858 he sold out there and went eight miles west and bought 80 acres of land and went to work to make a home. They worked hard and made a nice start, but in 1861 the great rebellion broke out. He was a free state Imn and the slave holders looked upon him with suspicion. He was a quiet, unassumdng man, but very firm. Everyone liked him at this time. He had a wife and six children and one morning in April 1862 one of the neighbors rode up to the house and calling him out said: "Duncan, I \'l ill give you this mare ,. a beautiful bay saddle mare, and I \,/ill put a new saddle on her and give you two revolvers and I want you to go to Price' s ar~." As yet he had not expressed himself as a Union man, but he looked at his visitor and sais: "Sir, if you want anyone to go to Price's army, you have the oquipment and you had better go yourself; I have a family to take care of." The man said he would take care of them, but Duncan saiq no, and tht:re was war from that day on. In August of th ~ t year he joined the st~te Militi~ and served until the fall of 18?4, , rhl.:. n he was discharged. In the surrunt=: r of 1864 his ,'.T ife took the family and ~{ ent back to Ohio, where his folks lived. .lhen he was discharged he also went b::1ck there, but remained only one ye a r. In路 the;: f2.11 of 1865 he again came back to Missouri. He and his true and loving wife went back on the ir Ii t tIe farm ~li th a large family. They were almost financially ernbarrased and broken in health and spirit. But they 'v iTent to work as best they could to recover their scattered fortunes. But in the spring of 1872 that grim monster,death, came and claimed 路the dear wi.fe and left eleven motherless children, the youngest only 18 months old. Duncan was so distracted that he could scarcely do anything for sever31 years, but he lived after she died and passed away June 1, 1901. A man stepped up to the grave as he \;iT85'路路 about to be lowered and with hat off and with tears in his eyes, said in a sorrowful, quivering voice ~ "There lies a good man; one who never shirked his duty. I served with him in the army. He 'l /as just to his enemies as we l l as his friends; was honest and upright and tried to teach his children to be the same." 736. t~RIA JANE DICKINSON, b.Apr.17,1847 in Andrew county, Mo.

HANNAH DICKINSON. 29. HANNAH 'DICKINSON was the ~~xth chilq of Joseph and Elizabeth(Nuzum) Dickinson, and came to Logan county, Ohio, -with her parents in 1811. She was born in Berks county, Penn., Nov.25, 1797 and removed to Harrison county, Va. (now rd ... Va~) . in 1802, where they resided for nine years before again braving the wilderness in Ohio. She was but fourteen years of age when they came to Logan county, where Indians were numerous and white people were few . Isaac Zane had established a store in Zanesfield and had married the Indian Princess, who is said to have been the daught er of a French nobleman and an Indian squaw; so she was half French and half Indian. Their son, IsaaC Zane, Jr., would be half English one fourth French' and one fourth Indian. Hannah had before her the example . of her oldest brother ' Gaius, who married ft1.ary Hall in Virginia. when she was very, fur which he was di.sawmed by the Quaker church; and hcr ol:-l F. st sl.ster ,Elizabeth w1f.Q mar ried Isaac Rea in Virginia, her parents IN ri t ten consent be i ng g i ve.n as slle was under age,. for which she was also disowned b y the Quakers. So on April 18,1815, when 18 years of age, she was married to Isaac gane, Jr~, by Ralph Lowe, J.P., the marriage reco~J be i ng ~ounq in Urbana. They lived in a house still standing on a hillside north of Zanesfield to the west of the Bellefontaine road. In the 1830' s the Wyandotte Indians vi/ere removed to eastern Kansas. Before the War of 1812 the British i$pressed American. seamen into their crews saying: Hance an E!lfs'lishman, aJ.w3yo an Englishman." While this was disproved by the war which fo ~_lcwed, the posseSSion of one fourth Indian blood condemned Isa&c Zane, Jr., to transportation \vith the others of his tribe and Hannah (Dic.kinson) Zane accompanied him. They were settled just west of the Kansas river and the county was named wyandotte and now includes ~he city of Kansas City, Kansas. They prospered, became wealthy and Isaac Zane, Jr., became blind and was known as "Blind Isaac." In the History of Wyandotte County, Kansas, by Perl W. Morgan, Vol..I, page 90 '.'le read: "Ge orge Van zandt and family lived in Isaac Zanes' s one story brick house near 17 Haskell Ave." (under Residents in 1855-6) And on page 91: "Isaac Zane I s Perpetual Motion Machine. Isaac Zane, whom the people of that day as "Blind Isaac", was a character of Wyandotte. He was a brother cf Mrs. Brown, wife of the proprietor of a hotel. He was an inventive genius and before he became blind had accumulated a fortune in l~~ds and other property. He had be~n vl orking on a perpe tual motion machine for seven years 'dhen Thomas J â&#x20AC;˘ . Barker was employed at $1.00 per day to cut pa ttE-rns for the mechanism. Mr. B~rks rts principal duty was to direct Mr. Zane's hands in making the patterns. He worked with patience for several days and Mr. Zane was so well pleased with his, work that

Zane, 1857-1927." - also new. Perhaps Irven Vias a SC.H1 of Isaac.




VIe know nothing definite about t.h3 i.r children. Mr. Hadley W,. Dickinson tells about a visit of 80 m9 of them at his hom.e.. when they drove a team and wagon at a ,gallop through the fielas and through the corn. They said their parents did not come because they were Indians and were not civilized as they the~ selves were. Hadley doubted if the visitors had attained any high degree of civilization. In the above quoted history, VoL,I} pat?;e 72~ we reA.e:b "Noah E. Zane resided a-t7out seven ~iles. "e5t of the mouth of the Kansas river and was noted chiefly fl1:Jr t,he exc'ellent frUl t he grew on his trees. He died in 1887.:1 ? a son of Isaac and Har..nah. Zanes are found in the Telephone direC'tory of Kansas City, but \/ e had no time to look th~m up. Our Indian cousins are now quite civilized and, with the great ability of Isaa~ Zane and his Quaker wife, we can be sure that they are people vihom we may be proud to claim as relatives.

The NEWLIN Fami1L-. _________-:;1=0~2_ Gaius Dickinson married Mary Newlin. The history of the Newlin family goes back for several centuries in England. A paper which has been in the Newlin family traces their ancestry to Roger de la Newland, Lord of . Newland Hall Manor, Essex, England,1199, and his descendants down to 1453. Thomas Newland, 1480, was Sheriff of London. Roger Newland of Newlands assisted Charles I in escaping from Ccti.sbrook Castle, Carisbrook, Isle of Wight, in 1642,. and is said to ruive been beheaded for it. Nicholas D. Newlruid was Lord of WakerlY Manor, Northampton. The will of Nicholas Newlin, of Bensted County , of Southton, yeoman, 1643-1-4, buried in Church of Bensted~ To wife Bridget so long as she keeps my children in good fashion, use(s) them lovingly, ~ 20 a year. Nicholas Newland came to Concord, Pa., in 1682. He and sons Nathaniel and John brought with them a letter of honorable dismissal from the Society of Friends of which they were members in good standing. After they came to Pennsylvania the name became Newlin, and even Nicholas and sons became Newlin. (Cope papers.) (Newlin is discusseq in Nash's History of Worcestershire, England. ) . Mt. Mellick Monthly meeting: We do hereby c e rtif~ that said Nicholas Newlin acquainted our Men's meeting with intention of removing himself out of Nation to New Jersey or Pennsylvania in America. We have nothing to charge against him or family as to convention in the world of ren, but our Friends Meeting is gener2.l1y dissatisfied with his removing, he being well settled, having sufficient substance for food, raiment, which all that profess Godliness in Christ Jesus ought to be content with. Mr. Albert Cook Myers, in "The Immigration of Irish Quakers" says on page 271: Nicholas Newlin, who represented Chester County in the :- rovincail Assembly from 1685 to 1687 inclusive, had resided'for many years prior to his emigration wi thin the limits of Mt. Mellick Meeting, Quee:r:as County, Ireland. From Stockdale's account of his sufferings for tithes and from other sources, it is evident that he was a prosperous farmer with large flocks and herds and several servants.

He came with his family on a ship called the "Levee." "Nicholas New1!:n eeing the wealthiest settlers in Chester County, it may be presumed that the Levee ranked VIell with other seagoing vessels." He was born in 1620 in England and married Elizabeth raggatt and we read of tHO sons, Natha.niel and John, who came with him to America, in 1682. He became Justice of the County Court and member of ..1m. Penn's I-rovincial Council from 1684 to 1691. He purchased a large tract of land in Chester county on West Brandywine.

.The MENDENHALL Family "Mary II/iendenhall, spinster, of Township of Concord, was married. at Concord Meeting, 7th of 2d mo. (April), 1685, to Nathaniel Newlin of Concord. Her brothers John and Benjamin were among the witnesses." Five members of the Mendenhall family came to Pennsylvania from the neighborhood of Ma~or of Middenhall in viiltshire, England. They were John, Moses, Benjamin, Margery and Mary, brothers and sisters, whose father's name has not been discovered. John and Moses probably came to Chester County in 1682, though the latter did rtot remain in the County. His na@e appears among the passengers of the "Bristol", which arrived 16th of 10th mo., 1685 in company witp his sister Margery and her husband, Thomas Martin. The followi~~ curious deed is found: By deed of Sept.5,1685, John Ewen of Draycott Co., Wilts, conveyed to Moses Mendenhall of Marriage Hill in Parish of Rensbury in County afore~aid 500 acres af land in Pe~ylvania not then located. By another deed, Aug.6?1688: And in ffowerth (4th) year of the raigne of our Soveraigne Lord James II, by Grace of God of England Scotland, ffrance And Ireland,king, defender of the faith &c, between Moses Mildenhall of Marriage Hill in Parish of Remsbury in County of Wilts, Yeoman, of the one part andJohn Mildenhall, one of the brothers of the said Moses, Benjamin Mildenhall another brother of the said Moses, and Margery Martin, './ife of Thomas . Martin~ and one of the sisters of the said Moses, and Mary Newland, iJfife of Nathaniel Newland: one other of the sisters of the said Moses, conveyed to his brothers and s~st e rs the above land. It is to be hoped they did not pay too high a price for this 500 acres IIno t then located." In the Compendium of American Genealogy, vol.iii, page 219, it is said tha.t the fath,r of Mary (Mendenhall) Newlin was Thomas Mendenhall of England, who died in 1782, and married Joan This is a tall story, for if he had a

108 daughter married in 1685, she must have been at least 15 when married and her father 20 when she was born . That would make her birth in 1670 and her fat he~'s birth 1650. If he died in 1782, he would have been at least 132 years old. It would seem that such unusual longevity would n ot escap~ record and comment. We also find, loc.cit.p.297, that John Mendenhall (one qf the brothers mentioned above?) came from Wiltshire, England, to Concord, TWp., Pa., (Now Delaware Co.) in 1685 and married Elizabeth Maris, daughter of George Maris. Loc.路c it.vol.iv, p.685, Benjamin Mendenhall, Qual:er, froll\ village of Mildenhall, England, to Concord, F., ca 1684, settled on a tract of land deeded to him by Wm. Penn which is still owned by a member of the family. He married, 1689, Anne Pennell. From all this we construct the following genealogy: I.

The WOODWARD Family . Nathaniel Newlin II married Jane Vioodwnrd. de know little of the Woodwnrd family. The genealogy of L.W.Allibone given in the Compendium of American Genealo~J, page 506 of vol.3, says that Jane Woodward, who married Nathnniel Newlin, died in l737,-six yeurs after the death of her husband. She v路m s the daughter of Richard (163~ 1700) and his wife Jane Woodward. Jane (Sr.) died cfter 1715. They lived at Middletown and attended Middletown Meeting.

109 Silbert Cope tells the same story: "Kathaniel Newlin b.l mo.19,1690; m.1710,11, at Middletown ,Meeting, Jane Woodward, died 1737, daughter of Richard and Jane )t{o~ward of Middletown." In "Quaker Arrivals at Philadelphia] 1682 to 1750, A.C. Myers, P . 7, "Mary Woodward from Meeting at Oevonshire House, London, Eng] and ~, 5 Mo. 6, 1682."

The METCALF Family. Nathaniel Newlin III married Esther Metcalf, the daughter of Thomas or Matthew Metca l f. In several places 'i n the Cope papers, the name Thomas is corrected to be Matthew.

The Mathew son of Jacob would be too young to have a daughter (Esther) married in 1735 to Nathaniel NeWlin. 2-8-1723, Hannah Metcalfe, certificate received from Philarlelphia. Doubtless the year of her IIlCirriage to Jacob Metcalf. There is no Thomas Metcalf in the above. 'v"{e conclude that the father of Esther Has Matthew and not Thomas. In the will of Jacob Metcalf, "Cousin Hester tl is rrentioned. It seems reasonable to suppose that she '!.Jas the daughter of his brother Matthew, and being fntherless, received unusual consideration. She then would be the cousin of Jacobts children, and may hnve been co~~on ly called Cousin Hest8r. .

Of the mother of Esther Metcalf we have some information. We do not know her father's name or even her surname. The first circumstance is her marriage with Matthew Metcalf and her early widowhood, and that she had a daughter Esther (or Hester) by that marriage. Next we read in Cope's Papers "Francis Jones, Jr., who married Jane Medcalfe, widow of Mat thew Medcalfe, Jr., of Gloucester Co. (prior to 1726) was not a cooper." This seems to be in connection with the marriage record in New Jersey of "Francis Jones of Burlington Co., cooper, and Janes ~iallis, Spinster, of same, married Nov. 29, 1729." This must have been a different Fr~ncis Jones. In this connection, Gilbert Cope, of West ChGstGr, writes: "Francis Jones, who appears to have come from Wales in 1?11, resided in various places until 1726, ~removed from the neighborhood of Haddonfield, N.J., 路to Gap with his wife Jane,widow of Thomas (corrected to Matthew-WHM) Metcalf. In 1735 Nathaniel NeWlin obtained a certificate from Concord Monthly Meeting to marry Esther Metcalf, ...a "" of Jones of


Lancaster County. Marriage 15th of 3d mo. 1735 at Sadsbury Meet·jng. She m~.£t have been a woman of some attractions as she &lJ!Jd)Sequently ~·btained two othl;; r worthy husbands, the last be ing 1?c"tJert ~Ie ndenhall. n So there is no question that the widow of Matthe\v Metcalf was the mothe:c of Esther, married Francis Jones. We find also Marriage license record of sta.te of N.J., License to marry granted June 11,1739, to Isaac Taylor of Sadsbury in Co. of Lancaste r " Jane Jones, widov', of same place.

Isc-,ac Welker, a <descendant of Gaius and Mary (Newlin) DickinsQn, says~ IlReI' (Anna Dickihson1s) g:NHJ£lmother, Mary Newlin, v/h:) was joined in ma -.rJ" with Gaius piektnson, who was a . VTort4y and ReeCDIIAnlendec.. minister of tn~ @o~p€'l at 010.

Nathaniel Nev.,rlin was known to have been a grandson Of NJcht}~as Newlin who vias a member· of Wm.Perm's Supreme Executive Cl}LJ.llCil in 1686. As for Jane ,Jones Taylor and her daughter, b<:>t!l of whom had three sllch worthy husbands, they are certainly dbserving of more than passing notice."



Mr. 'vlalker is' not of his re lationships. Anna Dickinson was a gre nt. granddaughter of GalUS Dickinson a nd was not a descendant of Isaac Tr:,ylor, but of Isaac Taylor's wife, who h~d be e n previously married to Matthew Mete:o,lf and to Francis J ones, 2nd Esther Metcnlf Who married Nc.thaniel Newlin was n daughter of the first marriage. It is perfectly natural that Mary (Ne'ulin) Dickins on, 'w ife of Gaius, would call Isaac Taylor Ugrandfather", since his wife was her grandmother, a.nd that many peor le sh ould believe that he ~"as her real grandfather, not kncwillg the circumstances. Indirec relationships were variously expressed. So Esther Metcalf is referred to as "daughter... in-law" of Francis J ones, vvhile she was rea11y a step-de.ughter; and she was referred tC . as cousin of Jacob Medcalf in his will, while t c the best c)f c·ur present kn.:-wledge she was a niece. Th8 genealogy of the ME';tcalf family must be cc nsidered as presumptive only. It is certainly a far cr'J to c , nclnc:'e that the "expected child ll elf Ma~thew Metcalf, 1dl10 died in 1 7 17, was a girl, thF'~ t .she survived and was named Es';::,heI' ami mc-.rried Nathaniel Newlin, e specially as the name ·:;.f Ivlatthewl s wife is n ot kncwn. While this Mntthew is the only ;:'na viho c :'lllc. be the fc~ thc r from the standpoint of chronology, yet the duplic.:;. tc Hannah of Jacob Metcalf may have been Jane. But Jacob is v/ife was Hannah and not J~ne. He wo~ld appear to be ruled cut . It is to be hoped th~t future investigation may clear up this tRngle.

In the year 1752 in the suburbs ef Du.hlin, Ire1and,Themas Nuzum leased his farm ef sixty acres to. a gardener fer the sum ef sixty guineas, er $300.00,a year,it bein~ unlawful at that time to. sell real estate; said lease to. be in full ferce and effect fer three generatiens.

Themas was contrary and after stacking nine stacks he q~cided he would go to. America where he could de as he pleased ~nd keep 'what he had until Ged toek it from him." Perhaps this furnishes an explanati cn of later events in the Nuzum family_ Thomas Nuzum and family settled in Nether Providence, Delaware eounty, Pa. and in the year 1772 (?) to.:lk out his naturalizati on papers (?) the same being in the possessi .:ln ef Mrs. Mary ef Berwyn,Pa.

Rich~rd Nuzum, son of Thomas continued to draw th& sixty guinGas a year on the in IrE:land until the year 1812 when all correspanoence Wd~ shut off on acccunt of the war. In the ye;:;路. r 1815 GQ-ruiner Leonard, son-in-law of Richard, went to Ireland t~ renew thG r"enta1s and on his return reported thqt the contract had expired by limitation, Qccording t~ the law of Grent Britain, which report was accepted as the final canswmnation of the real estnte of Dublin, Ireland.

Thomas Nuzum and his wife were devout Quakers. SECOND



Thomas Nuzum brought '>jfith him to America one son:, Richard Nuzum. The Bible record reads: "Richard Nuzum the son Df Thomas and Elizabeth Nuzum was born the 22nd of November,old style, 1734." Richard married 1760 (1), Hannah Worrall~ daughter of John (1) and Hannah (Taylor) worrall of Midd1etuwn, Delawara county, :--a., the fir3t connection with the Jorrall family. They lived in Nether Providence where several children were born. He do not as yet know when Richard and his family moved to Bt::rks county, loa. However some records will be given here which we hope to complete later. We find in the records Df the ';/oman ~~eeting that: July 27,1761, Hannah v/orrall, now Nuzum, complained of for marriage to one of anoth~r Society. sept.25, 1761, acknowledgement received from Hannah, wife of Richard Nuzum; Jan.l,1762, she is disowned. Jan.l,1777, Acknowledgement received with recommendation from Friends of Exeter. (Minutes of Robeson Jomans Meeting.) Adcepted and certificate to Exeter signed. So after fifteen years Hannah was restored to the good favor of the Society of Friends of Exeter and we find her signature on the marriage certificate of her daughter Elizabeth five years later. In 1790 their membership was remov~d from Robeson, Berks county, to the Exeter Monthly Meeting as the following records show: 2-22-1790, James Nuzum, cGrtificate from Robeson,dated 1-26-1790 6-28 .. 1790, Richard Nuzum, certificate from Robeson, dated 4-25-1790, with wife Hannah and children Sarah and 1-31-1791, Gl;:orge NuZum, certificate from Robeson dated 12-28-1790 4-25-1791, .fm.

The THIRD Generation in America. The history of the THIRD generation is not complete, but is fairly fulL Beyond a few general sta temc;;nts, all th':::tt is attempte d here is the family and descendnnts of Eliz e.beth .Nuzum. The activities of the third generation included the build~ ing of Nuzum's Mill by John, who vms a millwright e.nd Who helped to rebuild and remodel it t wo or three times. In this he was assisted by his brother William ·.{ho was also D. millw'right {?o.nd aftGrw.:>.rd built an overshot mill on Vlick~vire Creek ·::;nd Burnt C&bin Run. Thomas Nuzum, oldest son of John, w~s also a millv,rright and built flatboats for the river trade. Joel Nuzum, third son of John, and ;/i lliam, son of ~v illiam, were also mill ... wrights. The Nuzum mills became large and prosperous. The old $Vfedes Church on Swanson street, Philadelphia, saw the marriages of three of this g eneration.

The other children married: Jebn to Jane Brennan; William to Pattie Reese; George to Ruth Me,rtin; Phoehe to John Kirk, son of the John Kirk whom we have noted as living near Thomas the 'First in Nether Providence and who married the Worrall girl, / a sister of Richard Nuzum's wife. So Phoebe and John Kirk we~ first cousins and she ~~s disowned by the Friends fo~ this breach of Quaker rules. The Nuzums mUltiplied and for the most part continued to reside in the neighborhood. In ~ater years Nuzum reunions were held with attendance as high as 8ob. We now /take up the history and descendants of Elizabeth, so far as we know the oldest child of Richard and Hannah (.iorrall) Nuzum. Richard anQ Hannah are said to have been married in 1760. If that is eorrect there was time for one child before Elizabeth was bo~n, Feb.18,1763,-the date being taken from the ' Bible records of JoSeph Dickinaon. (vide infra) The date given for the birth of ~omas, the oldest Son, is March 8,1765. At any ~ate Elizabeth walked in the straight and narrow path prescribed by the Quakers and in due time and with all ceremony her engagement was announced in the Robeson Monthly Meeting for two consecutive months and on May 10,1782 she was married there to J)SEPH DICKINSON. The following quaint and dignified.. marriage certificate was :issued 7 the original of which has been seen by the writer. See p. The Nuzum family is not followed further at this time.

REMINISCENCES OF MY GRAND?ARENTS by Mrs. Jennie Chamberlain East Liberty,Ohio On request I shall try to tell yqu something about our granc;1fs,t.her and grandmother, Tho~s and Mariah (Lowe) Dickinson. I am sorry to say when I could have talked with them and asked them questions I did not think about the things I would like now to kno'.v, but will do the best I can. Grandmother was blind but was always very kind to meet us and talk to us. Uncle r,JIartin, who had remembered how Grandmother looked before she went blind, wanted a picture of her wi th her eyes open. He tried several times but finally managed to ge t a picture VI i th her eyes open. Grandmother \t%uld tell about their home situated some pl~ce between Goshen and Zanesfield up in the ~voods. She said it was a log house and the fireplace was on one side of the house. Grandfath~r 11'1'ould roll on Qig logs and that would make a ~ig fire, and' on Saturday evening Grandrnoth8r would put the children to bed and then she vi ould wash their clothes and hang them before the fire to dry, t4en in the morning all were clean and ready to go to Sunday-school.


~. "

She also told about the trap door ';/hich vIas in the middle of the floor of the log house. There were many Indians around there then and when they heard the war whoop which the IndianH gave she and the Children would open the trap door and jump dawn into vrhat they called a dugout. They were afraid of the Indiana, There were no roads then, just marked trees which they called trails, and the Indians would gallop around on these and give war whoops making the woods ring. There were also friendly Indians around which would come near to the house but not up to the door and then they would hide around until someone would see them and have them come in, but would not eat with the palefaces as they called them. Grandmother would try and make the war whoop for us · like the Indians did. She would also call us her little papooses which was the name the Indians called their children. One of Grandfather's sisters married a man whose nawe was Zane, one of the Zanesfield Zanes, and when the Government gq··.re the Indians reservations in the West they wept there. Then one of the girls whose name was Sallyaane would come back and visit the relations and I rwnember when she came to our house we were afraid ·Qf· her because she was an Indian. GrandrnothE:r and Grandfathf;; r would raise flax and then card it a.nd we ave and make their clothes from it. Grandmother worried aboLlt the church. She was Orthodox Hicksites bothered her. The church divided. The Goshen Church was her church and the little church in Zanesfield cemetery was the Hicksites. I was at that church once and the



seats are very high in the back but there was a cushion on the seat which made it very comfortable. Grandmother's father was a~ave holder and each child had his own slave. I think that was in Virginia and Grandfather's people were Whigs so you see Grandfather would not have sl<ivt!s. When Grandmother's parents were gone they sold their slavep'o Since she had had a slave her brother brought the money to her 'which came from the sale of her slave, but she would not have the money. He then tried to give it to her son Martin but sha said No, that it was blood money and he wasn't to take it. Then her brother laid the morley on a stump and went away. In this log house the door was not very tight so one ~venjn5 when.Grandfather came' in to retire his pants which were made of deer skin were wet so he hung them on the back of a chair :La dry. In the night a cow came along and pulled them out Q.nd chewed t.hem up and as it was the only pair he had he cc.uld not get up until Grandmother took her skirt and made him another pair of pants. Now they moved from this l 路og house to the frame h.::use 1Jlhi ch now belongs to M;3.rtin Yore, a great grandson of Thomas and Maria Dickinson. Grandmother alwnys kept apples on thG ll1e.ntle for us. She v/ould get up 'and feel along the mantle for the apples for her little papooses as she c~lled us . Grandf~ther was of a very friendly disposition end always made us welcome. When they lived in the frame house the Dick" ~ inson school house was not very far from their house. We vvoyld often stop at Grandfatherts on our way to school .. Sometimes the school boys would bother him then he would say to them, " did you come for?'U and they would say, "Nothing." ItWell, what did you bring to "get it in?- and they would say, "Nothing~11 So he would say, "Then get out" and they would.

There was a spring down the hill and ev~ry morning, no matter if in the winter or not, he would go down to the sprir~ and in a big trough he yvoUld dip his head in the water then climb the hill to路 the house. He had very white hair and didn't have it cut So it was long and he would come to the house wi 1.11 the water dripping from his hair. They lived very happily in the frame house for many years but finally died when Grandmother was 72 and Grandfather was 92) I think. I find this little verse by Edgar A.Guest very fi t路Age has stamped me as its own; (ting~ youth to younger hearts has flown: Still the cherry blossoms blow In the land I used to know, Still the tragrant clover spills ferfume over dales and hills, But I'm not allowed to stray ~n1ere the young are free to play: All the years will grant to me Is the book of memory.
