John and Alexander Dickey: Immigrants 1772 PDF Print E-mail
The Family Dickey

At the Library of Congress, I was able to read a copy of Grover C. Dickey's book John and Alexander Dickey Immigrants 1772 which he self-published through Adams Press in Chicago in 1976. He is descendant from Alexander Dickey, and the book focuses mainly on Alexander's line of descent. I am pretty certain that my John Dickey ancestor is the John of his book, although, the wife and children he lists for John to not correlate to the wife and children of my John (yet). Still, it was fascinating to read the account of these brave immigrants from Antrim, Ireland to South Carolina, and more research will undoubtedly tie my John to his John (some day).

John Dickey, his wife, and adult children John, Alexander, and Jane sailed from Larne, County Antrim, Ireland, on the ship James and Mary on August 25, 1772. The ship arrived at Charleston, South Carolina, on October 18, 1772. Due to the discovery of small pox on the ship, passengers were quarantined on the ship and at Sullivan's Island. John, John (Jr.), Jane, and Alexander were recipients of Royal Grants of land in South Carolina. They received 100 acres each from King George. (At this time land grants were by royal decree as the War for Independence had not yet been fought and South Carolina was an English colony.)
