The Dickinsons in Fredonia, New York

One of my favorite things about researching my family's history is looking for the places they were associated with. Today we are so lucky to have the ability to view places online anytime, from anywhere, so it is easier than ever to "visit" the places our ancestors lived.

Recently, I was looking at my grandmother, Margaret Dickinson's 1950 college yearbook and found the student directory, where her address was given as "10 White Street, Fredonia, N.Y.". Fredonia was familiar to me immediately because her father, Rev. William Henry Dickinson, was the pastor of the Assembly of God Church there. A visit to Google Maps shows that the home at 10 White Street is located next door to the Assembly of God Church, and therefore was probably the church parsonage - the home dedicated for use by the church pastor or other clergy.

It was also here that my grandmother, Margaret, led the Vacation Bible School in August of 1950, according to an article in the Fredonia Censor (Aug. 3, 1950). She was 19 years old at the time and was devoted to her work in the ministry of the gospel, while attending college at the Metropolitan Bible Institute in Suffern, New York.
