  • Notes 
    • Joseph, the fifth son of John Dickson (1704-1774), was Register of Deeds and County Surveyor of Duplin County; and represented Duplin County in the North Carolina House of Commons in 1780 and 1797. During the American Revolution, Joseph served in the Wilmington District Militia. After the Revolution, Joseph migrated west over the mountains into what later became the state of Tennessee. However, becoming dissatisfied with the mountainous terrain, he returned to North Carolina. In 1800, he again moved to Tennessee with his eight grown sons and their families, in quest of large landed estates. Other members of the family followed."

      Descendants of Simon Dickson shows many land transactions for Joseph and a will that details the disposition of all of his slaves.
