Peter Dickerson was born 4/30/1811 in Washington county, Ohio. In 1830 he lived in Tippecanoe county, Indiana with his parents Joseph Dickerson and Sally Dailey plus his sister Nancy and eight brothers. In 1836 he lived in Muscatine, Iowa with his mother, sister and eight brothers. He was still residing there in 1840. Like his brothers he was mostly self taught so his level of literacy was scant. One brother stayed in Iowa. His sister walked the Oregon trail in 1844. His other brothers moved south to Missouri, Kansas and Texas. Does anyone have information on what Peter did after 1840? He passed before 1893. Thank you for any help you can give me. Peter's grandfather fought in the American revolution and his father fought in the War of 1812.
