DOB/DOD Mary "Polly" Douglas Dickey has the War of 1812 pension file (35 pages) for the pension Polly Dickey applied for based on her husband John M. Dickey's service. There is a "leaf" from a family record (Bible?). It gives Polly's DOB as 24 Mar. 1799. She was still alive in 1883 as the pension file has documents from her and others in that year.
Further, there is testimony from Wm. Cunningham and Thomas J. Sullivan that they attended the funeral of James M. Dickey in 1865 and he died in Houston Co. but was buried in Anderson Co.(p. 26 of the pension file). The testimony does not name the cemetery. They also stated that Polly still lived in Houston Co. Their testimony was given 16 Aug. 1883. There is no information on the DOD for Polly.
James and Polly are my 3xg grandparents.

You left me some edits for Shirley. I try to only post edits when I can verify sources. Do you have a source for her birth location and marriage date? Thanks.

To Laura Dickey,
You maintain Find-a-Grave sites at Evergreen Cemetery (Percilla [Houston County], Texas) for Mary "Polly" (Douglass) Dickey and her husband James Madison Dickey. They are my ancestors. I have a couple of questions.
Please contact me by email at

James Dickey's children
The Gordon County Georgia heritage book has that Phoebe Rebecca Dickey was James and Mary's daughter. Phoebe married Myers Cochran. Their daughter Sarah Cochran married Thomas S. Holmes in Gordon Co. Sarah is my great grandmother. So Phoebe would be my gg gm and Mary my ggg gm. I am just starting to research the Dickey lineage and would be interested in sharing information.
