This all started with a search on a family member in Iowa, and there in the Ancestry Iowa marriages found some could not ID. Both Dickey and Stark surnames are in my family names. As many as researched and had help on researching I could not put these into either of the families. As the days passed and decided to branch out since working back was not showing anything. Went forward to the children of William and Mary Jane Stark Dickey. I just did not want this to fall to the way side, one of those needs to be solved. As I pushed I found this couple had some children that moved into Texas. A couple of our Dickey researchers have been looking for some missing links and this may help someone. As you can tell I have not followed the children, grandchildren out in the census, but working on it. In the meantime does anyone know of these groups or had some possible bits and pieces this may link together. I have had a very experienced Stark Family researcher helping me, but there is not enough in the Stark information to help us pin them down.

Looks as if he is still alive.
There is a William F.. dickey born in this census of texas, and wondered if he would fit in with all the texas dickey families have been missing also there is a Samuel M. in texas same birth yr. Parents not born in correct place but that does mean much with census errors. The return to the Appanoose County Iowa marriages with the Pauline White bride.
Here is Name: W. F. DICKEY Spouse: PAULINE WHITE Marriage Date: 25 Aug 1880 County: Appanoose State: IA my answer for this census, and helps to know I am on the right trail.

I am guessing this one for the moment, since his brother came to Texas, think this one fits for Sam for age and birth place....Just not the parents birth place.
