Shelton DICKERSON(son of Greenberry DICKERSON of Washington Co. Ohio and wife Martha A. HARDESTY
I am seeking to learn more about Shelton Dickerson born 1854 in Ohio the son of Greenberry Dickerson and Alice Unknown. Greenberry was born 1818 in Delaware and was a Civil War veteran having fought with the Co. H. 77th Ohio Infantry.
Shelton Dickerson married Martha A. Hardesty on 21 July 1881 in Noble County, Ohio. Shelton and Martha had a daughter Carrie Bell born 11 Jun 1881 and according to Martha's obituary in 1945 there was also a son which I have no other record of.
1880 is the last census that Shelton Dickerson is recorded in, when did he die and where is he buried? When he lived in Washington County, Ohio he is with his family in Watertown. I have looked at burials that are listed online for this area and cannot locate him or his father. His father Greenberry Dickerson is in the 1890 Veteran Census still living in Watertown.
Martha Hardesty was born 1858 in Ohio the daughter of Thorton Fleming Hardesty and Elizabeth Antill. Sometime after the 1900 census she married Hanson Pepper of Noble County, Ohio. I am also looking for any information about the marriage of Hanson and Martha. Hanson died 27 Sept 1904, place of burial is unknown. Hanson was the son of Minos Pepper and was first married to Naomi Farley. I am most interested in any connections between the Hanson Pepper and Martha (Hardesty) Dickerson.
I have recently learned that Martha Hardesty Dickerson married Hanson Peppers on 18 Sept 1901 in Noble County, Ohio. I am still seeking an other information available on this couple.
Since I originally posted this journal I have learned that Shelton Dickerson died 12 Oct 1888 in Waterford Twp., Washington Co., Ohio, I still do not know where he is buried. I also learned that his father Greenbury Dickerson died 5 Apr 1893 in Waterford Twp., Washington Co., Ohio, his burial place remains unknown.
If these families are of interest to you, I am always willing to share information.
