  • Notes 
    • June B. Bork, WAYNE COUNTY, KENTUCKY, VITAL RECORDS, WILLS 1802-1909, and THE DICK FAMILY, vol. 6, p. 212 (1983), writes:
      "John ... was born 1 April 1813 in Wayne County on Big Sinking.... John was known as 'Assessor Dick', holding this particular office in Wayne for 16 years. He also served as Clerk of the Court, and a Constable for many years. ***
      "In 1836, John married his childhood sweetheart, the beautiful, Sarah Rogers. Sally, as she was called, was born 25 November 1816 on Sinking Creek, a short distance from where John was born. She was the daughter of George Rogers and Elizabeth Randle, lifelong neighbors of the Dick Family. Sally died ... on the 9th of December 1857 of Typhoid Fever. John ... remained a widower for 19 years, when he passed away on the 17th of July 1876, at age 63 years. Both he and his wife, Sarah[,] are buried in the Dick Family Cemetery on the old homeplace. [They had 11 children.] ***"
    • June Bork reports in WAYNE COUNTY, KENTUCKY, MARRIAGES AND VITAL RECORDS, 1801-1860, vol. 1, p. 111 (1972), that John R. Dick was a Wayne Cnty, KY, clerk, when a wedding occurred on 31 Aug 1856 between Andrew V. Frogg and Sarah B. Harris, and in his remarks under the record of this marriage, he wrote: "I guess they will try to make a few tadpoles". Additionally (Ibid, p. 159), under the record of the 7 Nov 1856 wedding of Samuel W. Jones and Polly Ann Worley, he wrote: "Large man and small woman".
