*James Dickens is surely the brother of my 5th GGF Henry Dickens Sr., and it is my belief the "Rebeccah Dickens" who married my 4th GGF Jeremiah Dickens in Caswell Co., NC in 1802 (Jeremiah was the son of Henry Dickens Sr.) was the daughter of this James Dickens.


NOTE: I have been asked on several occasion if Henry Dickens Sr. served in the Revolutionary War.  To date, I have NOT FOUND any indication that he served, supported, or provided any provisions to the cause - thus, although Henry was of the right age, I do NOT believe Henry Dickens Sr. served. Furthermore, I am certain that none of Henry's sons served either, as none were old enough.


**The connection to William Shoulders may or may not be accurate. I cannot document or prove beyond anecdotal happenstance that this particular William Shoulders from Bertie/Chatham was indeed the father of my 5th GGF Malachi Shoulders of Smith Co., TN.

   Claiborne Co., Tennessee 1808 Militia


Hugh BRAGG [*Disproven Ancestor], of Grainger, Hawkins, Franklin, Warren, and Coffee County Tennessee, was born between 1770-1774 in Virginia (probably Halifax Co.), died between 1840-1850 in Coffee Co., TN. 


*My linkage to Hugh Bragg as my 5th GGrandfather was originally based on data posted by other researchers who identified my 3rd GGrandfather "James C. Mossison" as being the son of Hugh's daughter - Mary Miller Bragg (and she being the wife of Samuel Douglas Morrison). Since my original posting, I have discovered enough factual information contradicting the linkage to Hugh Bragg and proving it incorrect. It has become overwhelmingly apparent that my 3rd GGrandfather "James C. Morrison" was actually the son of John F. Morrison and & wife Mary Morrison (who was his cousin). John's parents were "Patrick Morrison" and "Anne Foster".  Mary's parents were "Andrew Morrison" (brother to Patrick) and "Elizabeth Sloan". The data above regarding Hugh Bragg will be left here on this site so that other researchers who are descendants of "James C. Morrison" may be able to find it and correct their information if they too have Hugh Bragg as their ancestor....
