There is a cemetery in this community known as The Dickerson Cemetery. On the 3rd Saturday of each April, there is a cemetery homecoming where many family members gather together along with other members from families that are also buried here. At the present time, some of the descendents of William and Lucinda are working on getting this cemetery in the records as a Historical Cemetery. There is a lot of family history in this little community and we would welcome visits from kinfolks that have moved away.
