Malinda C. Dickson, Dickson TN b. 1821 (son of William Dickson?)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Dickson, Waynick
Looking for any information on Malinda C. Dickson (1821 - 1900+) who married David Pryor Waynick in 1842 and raised 11 children in Dickson county. My great-grandfather wrote that Malinda Dickson is a descendant of the Lee family of Virginia, and that's all I know.

Referrals to any books or resources that would help sort out the various Dickson families in Dickson county would also be appreciated.

The family is in the "middle district" censuses of 1850 and 1860. He died in 1865. She is in the 1880 census in district 10 with several of her daughters. Then, she is in a Clarksville city directory in 1895 and the 1900 Montgomery county census. No records found after 1900.


David and Malinda's oldest child, Peninah Polk Waynick, married a William Dickson in December, 1866. Don't know if he is related to Malinda, or how.

Appreciate any insights.
