I don't know of the William DICKSON/Kelly GORDON family, but the other three
are all descendants of John DICKSON (1704-1774) of Duplin County, NC. I
can't find any Rachel S. DICKSON in this family or in any of the other TN
DICKSONs that I track, but that doesn't mean she doesn't fit. Here is what
I do have on the three families you cited.
