Hi, I'm new. I'm looking for info on Abigail Maria Dickerson Niper (born 1837 and died about 1880) and her husband. Her kids (one was my great great grandmother Mary Alice Niper Beam)were sent to relatives to live at young ages--anyone know why? She is my great great great grandmother. Her parents were Peter George Dickerson and Phebe Pool Dickerson. I have info I retrieved from familysearch.org (the Church of the Latter Day Saints site). Is that a good resource? According to that site, to answer some questions in posts from earlier in the year, the father of Philemon or Filesman Dickerson or Dickinson born 1598-1613 in Yarmouth, Suffolk, England, or Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England, is William Dickinson (son of Thomas Dickinson and Judith Carey, both of Ely), born 1570 and died 1675/6 in Ely, Cambridge, England and he married in 1594 Sarah Stacey from Ely and daughter of Robert Stacey. The line goes back from there 4 more generations to William Duyonson born about 1360 in England. Not sure if that info is correct, but it's what I found at that website.
