I am trying to find the Dickey family that connects with my Eliza Eblan or Eblin (who later married to Horn, Langford, Geer, and Nelson).

In an attempt to find a connection, I have researched the family of Charles Dickey (1812-1902).

The below is a list of his descendants. Numbers 1, 2, and 3 preceding a name indicate the generation number.

Please contact me if you see a connection or needed correction/updates. Thank you.

Based on the following information, here's the connection between the Dickey family and Eliza Eblin:

Robert Stewart Dickey (b.1815) was married to Hannah Reed 9-Aug-1840 in St. Louis. They had three children born in Illinois: Charles Marion (b.1841), Albert Newton (b.1843), and Robert Stewart Jr. (b.1847). Hannah died 27-Jun-1849 (according to the Langford Family bible records) of Cholera in Keokuk, Lee County, Iowa (according to letter from son Albert Newton). Her son Robert Stewart Jr. died four months later of dysentery in Oct-1849 in Paris, Grant County, Wisconsin (1850 Federal Mortality Census).

The 1850 Federal Census shows Charles Marion and Albert Newton Dickey are living with their uncle and aunt Charles & Louisa Dickey in Paris, Grant County, Wisconsin. We don't know where Charles Marion and Albert Newton's father (Robert S. Dickey) was living at that time. Perhaps, Robert sent his three sons to live with his brother's family after Hannah died in 1849, or Robert was also living with them in Wisconsin but was left off the census for some reason.

In the same 1850 Federal Census, Benjamin Nelson (b.1875) and Ellen Creek (b.1831) are living in the same household near the house of Charles & Louisa Dickey in Paris, Grant County, Wisconsin. Benjamin Nelson marries Eliza Eblin Horne Gear Langford on 14-Jan-1851 in Grant County, Wisconsin. Robert S. Dickey marries Ellen Creek 16-Oct-1851 in Grant County, Wisconsin. Ellen Creek Dickey dies after giving birth to their daughter Ellen Dickey in July-1852 in Grant County, Wisconsin. Daughter Ellen Dickey dies a month later in Aug-1852.

Robert S. Dickey marries for the third time to Sarah Ruttledge (b.1821) on 17-Mar-1853 in Grant County, Wisconsin. They purchase property June-1856 in Elizabeth, Jo Davies County, Illinois (according to a copy of a deed) but they don't have any children. We're not sure when Robert S. Dickey dies, but it must be sometime between June-1856 and August-1860 because his wife Sarah Dickey marries Joseph Nelson (b.1822) on 5-Aug-1860 in Elizabeth, Jo Davies County, Illinois according to county records. We suspect Joseph Nelson is related to Benjamin Nelson and therefore the connection between Robert S. Dickey and Eliza Eblin.

For the longest time we couldn't figure out why Robert S. Dickey, his kids, and his spouse's information were contained in the Langford Family bible. We think the bible was originally owned by Robert S. Dickey and then passed on to his third wife Sarah Dickey after Robert died. Sarah Dickey then marries Joseph Nelson. Sarah Dickey Nelson died 27-Apr-1870 before her husband Joseph Nelson dies and they never had any kids together. The bible then probably passes from Sarah Dickey Nelson to Joseph Nelson, or one of his relatives. Since Benjamin Nelson was married to Eliza Eblin Horne Gear Langford (mother of John W. Langford b. 28-Jan-1841), Robert S. Dickey's bible ended up with the Langford family.......and that is the connection between Eliza Eblin and Robert S. Dickey.

Hope this information is some help to you. The question we are still trying to figure out is, what happened to Albert Newton Dickey between the time when he was shown living with his Uncle Charles in 1850 and when he joined the military in Smelters Grove, Wisconsin 30-Sep-1864. In an 1898 letter to his nephew, Albert Newton said he didn't live with his father, but was living with a Dr. Arnvedia(?). We haven't been able to find any information on Albert Newton or a Dr. Arnvedia during that time. If you have any information about Robert S. or Albert Newton Dickey's whereabouts between 1850 and 1864, we'd sure like to know. Tony and Sheila-Dickey Olenichak
