Peter Dicks (1654-1704) and his wife Esther Maddock (1661-1709) left Chester, England in 1684 on the Friendship of Liverpool and arrived, after a three month crossing of the Atlantic, in Chester, Pennsylvania.
Waldo Emerson Dick (1907-1996), born in Indiana, and his wife Hellen Frances Fritz (1909-2000), born in Michigan, were my parents.
This website outlines how Peter & Esther and Waldo & Hellen -- and several generations in between -- are related........
As a critical historian, I have tried to document my family history all along the way; and I remain open to new discoveries and corrections in my family's story, as long as they too can be documented.
