Capt George Dickey
Birth: 1743
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 2, 1780
North Carolina, USA

Captain George Dickey was the son of James Dickey, an Irish immigrant. George married Martha Johnston. His brother Anthony married her sister Sarah. While George was leading a group of men, they were attacked by Cherokee Indians. George and two others, including Elias McFadden, were killed. Three were killed and two wounded of the group of seven men. Varmits got to the bodies overnight. The next day Anthony leading 70 men gathered the bones and buried them in a sheet, in a sinkhole on the hill By Hooper Creek where they died. Anthony then led a three day raid on Indian villages, and killed as many as they could find. At the time the area was part of Old Tyron /Rutherford Co but now is somewhere in Polk Co. NC. George's children include George, Moses, Martha, Robert and possibly James. Descendants of George may join DAR and SAR. George's DAR number is A204388. This was proven by Anthony's Rev War pension application record. Their brother David was also a Rev soldier with a pension - DAR # A033680. David married Mary, the widow of Elias McFadden. Anthony reported his younger brother Moses was also a soldier and was taken prisoner and put aboard a British prison ship. Thus James had 4 sons fight in the revolution. Norman Dickey's SAR national number is 172979 and his ancestor is Captain George Dickey

In 2012 a memorial marker was placed in Dickey Lynch for three Rev War brothers near the 4th brother David Dickey
