DICKSON, HICKS, PEARSALL posted by Russell James on Tuesday, June 8, 2004

I am interested in getting information about Joseph DICKSON's children who moved from Dickson Co. TN to Franklin Co. AL ca. 1820's. I would especially like to know more about Hugh DICKSON and Hannah HICKS and their chldren. Abner DICKSON was also a son of Joseph DICKSON who moved to Franklin Co. but I understand he was disabled in the War of 1812 and never married. Other children of Joseph DICKSON may have settled briefly in Franklin Co. then moved to other locations in AL, MS or back to TN. Information about this family is found on this Website from the military records of the War of 1812. The PEARSALL family of Franklin Co. is also associated with this group that came out of Dickson Co. TN & prior to that Duplin Co. NC
