  1. One source has Samuel's middle initial as 'B', another has H. and still another has the middle name "Treadway". I have not found documentation for any middle name. Even his grave marker has no middle name or initial.

    August 15, 1835, Bedford County, Tennessee, Samuel is found in Deed Book A Page 270-1; Roll 43 transferring property to his son John Thomas. At the top of the copy of the deed is noted Marshall County Tennessee, but the deed states the transaction was in Bedford County. See copy of deed.

  1. Some researchers have the surname, Dudley, for Sallie Ann. It is also said that her father may be John Dudley. I have no documentation for this, and have been questioned about it. Because of this, I have removed from my history, the surname for Sallie Ann.

  1. Dickson lived in Bedford County, Tennessee in 1822. Deed records show sale of land in Bedford County, dated Sept. 10, 1822; between 1822-1825.Dickson moved to Lawrence County, Alabama. Two land grants were recorded for Dickson Spears of Lauderdale County, Alabama. (Copies are in possession of Lynn Mauldin, Ingram, Texas.). He owned land earlier in Lawrence County, Alabama (deed dated Nov. 24, 1832-80 acres) and sold it on October 28, 1833. In 1832 Dickson moved to Lawrence County, Alabama and there he married the second time to widow, Sevillah Rainey. Her first husband was William Dudley. Her second husband was James Rainey. About 1840, Dickson moved to Washington County, Arkansas (census 1840). In 1845/46 they moved to Henderson County, Texas for Dickson's name appears on the 1846 tax roll. Kaufman and Vanzant Counties were carved out of Henderson County in 1848. Dickson probably lived in the same place but the names of the counties changed. Probate papers are in possession of Lynn Mauldin for Dickson Spears who died intestate September 1, 1849 in Kaufman County, Texas.
