My Dickerson Family Line
(My sources were from Floyd Co. By Dr. Amos D. Woods.)

The Dickerson Family, originally from Pittsylvania County, Virginia. The family included
Griffith Sr., Griffith Jr., Moses Sr. and Obediah . Between 1782 and 1787, they acquired land grants for approximately 2200 acres on the West Fork of the Little River, three miles North of the present Floyd County Courthouse.

I am sure that most of you have information on Griffith,Moses and Obediah. If not then write to me I have limited information myself.
