Floyd Gould Dickinson was the ninth of twelve children born to Charles Wesley Thomas Dickinson and Josephine W. McManus, both of whom were from pioneer Texas families. CWT Dickinson was the tenth of ten children born to Dr. Samuel Burling Dickinson and Caroline Elizabeth Kinnison.
Samuel Burling Dickinson was directly descended from four passengers who were aboard the Mayflower on her maiden voyage to America that arrived in Nov 1620 (John Howland, Elizabeth Tilley and Elizabeth's parents); thus Floyd Gould Dickinson was descended from them, too.
SBD is a qualifying ancestor for membership in the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, the John Howland Society, the Sons of the Republic of Texas, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, and Texas First Families.
Floyd Gould Dickinson was married to Thelma Fay Rutledge. They had three children: Floyd Melvin Dickinson, Charles Wilford Dickinson and Beverly Jean Dickinson.
