I am looking to contact anyone who is linked with the DICKINSON family of Sandy, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. They arrived there in 1891 having emigrated from Yorkshire.
Richard Gledhill DICKINSON, his wife Sarah Elizabeth nee COLLEY and their children Emma, Edith, Walter and George all arrived in the USA. Richard was a coal miner, bringing his expertise from the mines of Yorkshire. He died in Sandy c.1926 and his wife died there c. 1932.
I'm not sure what happened to the children, other than George, born 2nd April 1893, married and had at least 9 children by the time of the 1930 US Census.
My wife is a DICKINSON from this family, and it would be nice to find some of her American cousins.
