Bio is written/edited by a direct descendant* of Nathaniel of Hezekiah, whose lines go to Jonathan DICKINSON, to Temperance Dickinson ODELL, to Eunice ODELL FORD. No transfer.
Suggested edit: William Dickinson and Sarah Ellen Stacey were the parents of Nathaniel but there is a brother of his that has a connection that quite a few people are looking for. His brother John Dickinson (1692-1682) married as his second wife Elizabeth Howland. She was the daughter of John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley and is ,of course, the connection to the Mayflower.
It should also be noted that with this connection to the Howland and Tilley lines it also connects to the Cooper and Samson lines as they were cousins and traveled in the Mayflower together. The Dickinsons, the Tilleys, the Coopers and the Sampsons have intermarried for many centuries and the Dickinson and Tilley families have been traced back to William the Conqueror in 1066 as these two families came with him when he came from Caen.
I have been researching genealogies for 50 years and my grandmother was a Tilley. The Tilleys and the Dickinsons continued to intermarry at least thru the late 1800's.

The John Dickinson that married Elizabeth Howland was my 11th great granduncle and Elizabeth was my 8th great grandmother….I continue to be amazed at how many connections I have found to the Mayflower passengers…41 as of the last count
