John Dickinson was the son of William & Ann Dickinson of Sheffield, England. They lived in nearby Kimbersworth when John was a child. Family tradition says John had two brothers. One brother was named William. He stayed in England and had a daughter named Caroline who married George H. Hill. The other brother's name is unknown. It is said that he went to Australia or New Zealand to make his fortune in the cattle business. Below is a photo from one very helpful researcher named Jackie Dickinson who I found online. She forwarded a photo of her ancestor Joseph Dickinson, shown here at right be side our John Dickinson for comparison. Could they have been brothers? What do you think? Anyone with information, please comment or contact me!
