    Notes 
    • The children of Alexander Dickinson are listed in the estate papers as Willie, Emma ("Ema"), Mary M., and "W. H." or "W. A.", all living with widow Sarah. The 1880 U.S. Census lists the children living with Sarah as J. Thomas (male, b. ca. 1862), Bertie (male, b. ca. 1868), Emma (female, b. ca. 1870), J. A. (male, b. ca. 1872) and M. N. (female, b. ca. 1874). Findagrave reports Sarah and son J. A. buried at Pleasant Grove Baptist; however there are no photographs to corroborate the information offered. Sarah's birth date there (22 Apr 1860) is improbable if she married Alexander in 1872.
