Hoping to find someone who recognizes the family of Lucena Dickson. I have been told she was born 3/10/1809 in Wooster, Ohio. She married Matthew McCaskey on 4/9/1825, but I do not know where they were married (assuming in Wayne Co. OH). Matthew was from PA. I knew the McCaskeys moved to what is now Fulton County, Ohio. Sure enough, I found them listed in the 1850 census in Swan Creek (Fulton Co. OH). Children born of this marriage were: Milton (~1827), John (~1831), Eliza (~1833), Matthew (~1835), Robert (12/1837), and Julia (12/2/1840).
I do not know anything about either Lucena or Matthew's parents. I have seen another McCaskey in Fulton Co. in the 1850 census -- George, married to Lydia (I believe she would have been Lydia Jewell), both of PA. Might George be related to Matthew? George was listed as age 54 and Matthew as age 45 in 1850.
If you recognize any of these names, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) -- Denise
