JOHN DICKINSON - ELIZABETH RICHMAN - 1797 SALEM COUNTY, NJ
This past week while visiting South Jersey (for a week of genealogy research!!!), I visited the SCCH and found another generation of my DICKINSON line.An indenture dated 26 Aug 1837 between JOHN DICKINSON, and his wife, SUSANNAH (her maiden name was COURSE) and RICHMOND DICKINSON for 60 acres of land in Pittsgrove Twp. In part it says "...and is the same land which ELIZABETH DICKINSON, late ELIZABETH RICHMAN, the mother of the said JOHN DICKINSON..."
I checked the marriage book at the Courthouse and found ELIZABETH RICHMAN married JOHN DICKINSON on 25 Jan 1797 in Salem County.
Also believe another son was the same RICHMAN DICKINSON mentioned in the indenture.RICHMAN DICKINSON married MARY VAN METER on 11 Feb 1825 in Pilesgrove Twp.
Further searching of the deeds/indentures/will, I found a will of WADE DICKINSON dated 16 Nov 1797.His wife, ELIZABETH, and brother, JOHN DICKINSON, are executors.JOHN is also named guardian for WADE'S son, NATHANIEL DICKINSON.A daughter, SOPHIA (not 100% sure of that name), is also mentioned.
I'm hoping someone will recognize these names and contact me.JOHN DICKINSON and ELIZABETH RICHMAN DICKINSON ARE MY 4th great grandparents.
