The freeholders of Mecklenburg County (on 08 APR 1776 and 14 APR 1777) were polled to elect two delegates to serve in the Revolutionary Convention, which was later called the General Assembly. In the "Virginia Genealogist, Volume 26," there is an article listing the names of the freeholders and how they voted. The candidates for delegate were Col. Robert Munford, Mr. Henry Delony, Mr. Joseph Speed, and Col. Bennett Goode. The author of this article makes a strong case that by casting their votes, these men were violating British law and thus acting as Revolutionary Patriots and should thus be eligible for descendants to claim as a Revolutionary patriot for the purpose of membership in DAR or SAR.

I finally found some information on a possible link of William Dickey to his ancestors. I had found a census record that listed his parents as E.L. and Mary at one point. Today I found a tree with records for Edwin Lewis Dickey who married a Mary Ann East. I think this is the missing link for William to his parents.

This bit of tree traces back to John B. Dickey who was born probably between 1750 and 1760 in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. He came to America from Belfast on the Progressive Farmer and landed in Charleston, South Carolina. Later he received land grants in Amite County, Mississippi.

The Early History of the William Nodwell Family in Canada

Date: June 6, 1936

Written By: RDN (assume it is Robert Duncan Nodwell)

      It is unfortunate that the writing of this history has been neglected so long and that the writer has to depend for his information, mainly, on the rather hazy remembrances of the younger members of the third generation.
     We know that they came from County Londonderry, Ireland and that Limavady was a nearby town. The Townland was Anaghmore and the name of the farm is believed to have been Rusky.
     We learn from history that early in the reign of James the 1st a large part of North of Ireland was confiscated to the Crown and the land was divided up among English and Scottish Protestants.
The fact that the Nedwill's (original name) were Presbyterian suggests that they belonged to the Scottish side of this immigration. This point must be left to some member of the Clan who visits Ireland and looks up the old records. This information can be inserted into this history later.
