Hi MrsL

If you are going to the cemetery, let me know and I can tell you the rough position of the grave.

I was there a couple of years back and it is a very tightly packed grave yard that would take ages to search without some plan :)

Linda - it's best to remove your e-mail address when MrsL has recorded it.

Regards to you both

Because my Joseph Dickson and family came to America after the 1841 census and before September 1842 (when Joseph died in Macoupin County, Illinois), I only checked to make sure that the Joseph, Margaret and Helen Dickson I found in 1841 census was not still listed in 1851.  I have not gone beyond the earlier census. 

The 1841 census lists Robert Dickson age 40, wife Agness 40 and sons William 12 and John Dickson 9 at Lockside.  William Dickson 65 and dau. Jessi(e) 20 at Crofthead.  In Springholm were, Agnes Dickson age 19 with dau. Mary Ann Kerr age 5 mos.  Anne Dickson 6 in household of Andrew Armstrong and immedicately following was my Joseph Dickson 50, Margaret 40 and Helen 16. In Haugh village on was William Dickson 60, Jane age 27 and David Clark 5.  Plus other Dickson/Dixons in other locations but, all in Urr Parish.

I made a copy of Enumerator's Schedule No. 3 (No. of Parish 884, Name of Parish Urr, County Kirkcudbright)  which lists all the others in that particular Schedule.  This is the schedule where Springholm appears, plus a few other locations.  Because my copy is printed from the microfilm, some of the name are hard to read.

Thanks Gadget for all you do.  I did remove my e-mail address.  I didn't know you can go back and edit.   

This is one of the best forums I have ever found.

My Book of KPD* turns this up:
"to those interesting extracts we may add from an old Valuation Roll teh name of the principal proprietors of land in 1799:-


William Dickson of Margley    "


Not sure if he was of your family, but thought I'd bring it to your attention in case it helps somehow.

"4. Jannet/Janet "Jessie"  Dickson b. about 1849-1850 Kirkpatrick Durham.  She was visiting in the 1881 census and had a child, Mary Jane Dickson b. about 1879 England."

Have just turned up the fact my Great Great Grandmother was a Janet Dickson; needs much more research - I'm just starting out really, but will let you know of any developments! You never know.

Hi all!
I'm aware that this is an old thread but I've been looking at creating a family tree for my dad. The dickson family mentioned living in springholm is my dads family ( he is the eldest of 7 siblings) and his father was William Dickson who sadly passed away when I was in my early teens.
It would be lovely to find out if we have relations out in the wider world!

Maggie Dickson,

I would love to discuss the Dickson family of Springholm with you.  I just sent a private message, but thought it was going to post under your posting--apparently not.

A lot of water under the bridge since the original post...
I got divorced in 2014 and have returned to live in Kirkpatrick Durham!
I've a friend who is very knowledgeable about local history/families - I'll be seeing her on Thursday and will try to find out if she knows anything to add to your research on the Dickson family. :)
