Dear Catherine
This is my family but some of your information is inaccurate.

Peter Dick -- one of my direct line great grandfathers -- was born “Peter Dicks” on 23 October 1722 near Chester, Pennsylvania. His Quaker parents were: Peter Dicks (1696-1760) and Sarah Hayes Powell Dicks (born c. 1700). Peter was disowned by his father, due to a disagreement, and left the Quakers and dropped the “s” to show that he was not part of the Quaker Dicks family any longer. He married a lapsed Quaker as well: Mary Elizabeth Linton.

Mary Elizabeth Linton was a Quaker, born in North America, and her parents were Joseph Linton (1705-ABT 1743) and Mary Blackshaw Linton from Bucks County Pennsylvania. (Mary Blackshaw - 28 February 1705 -- before 1 October 1773 – was daughter of Nehemiah Blackshaw and Elizabeth Bye.) Joseph and Mary Blackshaw married on 24th day of 3rd month in 1726 at Falls Monthly Meeting (Pennsylvania)
