I have just discovered through contacts on Ancestry.com that Gordon Edward Dicker b. 1896 d. 1968 Canada married to Lillian Cox was my 3rd cousin 1 x removed.
I am just now researching these other contacts' trees but there seem to be quite a few Dickers in Canada originally hailing from the county of Devon in the south west of England, UK. There seem to be several folk researching this family and some seem to have some good info.
Some time has passed since the original post so maybe this isn't relevant. Hopefully it might be of some interest.
