    • June B. Bork, WAYNE COUNTY, KENTUCKY, VITAL RECORDS, WILLS 1802-1909, and THE DICK FAMILY, vol. 6, p. 234 (1983), writes:
      "George Washington Dick was born ... on the 18th of June 1820, on Sinking Creek.... His education was limited to the rude log-cabin subscription schools of his native county. George was reared to the occupation of a farmer. He was united in marriage 15 September 1853 to Emaline Wright, a daughter of Moses Wright who was a soldier in the War of 1812. Emaline's mother was Nancy Dickerson. George and Emaline had ten children, five of whom survived....
      "George and ... Emaline left Kentucky shortly after their marriage to seek a new home site in the Northern Territory [sic]. ***
      "George and Emaline resided in Jefferson Township, Wayne County, Iowa[,] on section 36. ***"
