Ephraim DICKINSON died in Bossier Par., La. in 1849. According to a family story, Joel's mother [Caroline MILLER DICKINSON] died before he was grown, so she must have died 1838-1854 in Al. or La. One of Ephraim DICKINSON's daughters supposedly married one of the McDade's in Bossier or Caddo Par., La. The DICKINSON, HILMAN/HILLMAN, McDADE, & SPRINGFIELD
