If you are refering to John DICKEY born in Belfast, Antrim, Ireland in 1703 and died in Newberry, South Carolina on the 13 February 1789.

The son of George DICKEY 1664-1730 and Margaret WALKER 1690-1759

In 1737 he married Martha McNEELY she was born in Antrim, Ireland 1706 and died at Bullock Creek, York, South Carolina in 1805. The daughter of George MCNEELY 1680-1780 and Sarah RUTLEDGE 1685-1785
