From the history of Wilmot Valley, Bridge to the Past, page 200
Daniel B. married Catherine Ramsay (1823-1902) on March 7, 1842.
They farmed on the homestead, and ran the post office from 1871 to May 22, 1886. Mr. Dickieson was also contracted to haul the mail twice per week, from the New Annan railway station to Wilmot Valley, from 1876 to 1879. Daniel and Catherine had a large family:
Henry R. (1843) married Mary E. Camp in 1892 in Springfield, Mass., U.S.A.
Andrew (1845) was ? book-keeper and lived in Summerside.
Hannah (1846-1909)
John (1848-1917) farmed at Ross's Corner for several years. He married Lydia McPhail of Orwell on June 6, 1874. Lydia was born about 1845. They later moved to Summerside. John was also a carriage-maker and machinist.
Mary J. (1850-1914)
Jemima (1852)
William (1854-1854)
Margaret or Margaretta (1856)
Martha (1858)
Artemas (Apr. 5, 1861-Oct. 19, 1882) died at Reynolds, South Dakota, U.S.A. of bilious fever.
Annie (1863)
Reuben W. (1866-1950) farmed at home.
Catherine K. was born and died in 1868, according to the family tombstone in the Wilmot Valley Cemetery which records the thirteen children listed above. The "Summerside Journal" however records that Caroline Coy, youngest daughter of Daniel and Catherine Dickieson, died September 11, 1868, at the age of one year. To add to the confusion the "Argus" notes on September 14, 1875 a Catherine Emily Dickieson, who married Ben F. Williams, and who was thought to belong to this family. However, Catherine Emily does not appear on the family headstone.
The "Summerside Journal" records on May 4, 1899, that John Dickieson, who then lived in Summerside, "is exhibiting a somewhat extra-ordinary fowl's egg laid by one of his Black Langshang pullets, hatched from a basket of eggs brought last summer from Texas. The egg measures exactly seven and one-quarter inches by eight and one-half inches." Mr.Dickieson claimed, in this article, that he had reared the finest pullets and roosters in the province from these eggs.
