[NF66] According to Mamam's Notebook:
"The wedding guests danced in the barn. Married by the Rev. Elliot."
"Residence: McConnellsburg, PA. they went to housekeeping in the little frame house just next the Henry home on West Lincoln Way. Here all the children except William Scott were born. Later they moved to the house where Fulton County Bank now stands. Mary Dickson died here in 1905."

[NI147] From Mamam's Notebook: "William Dickson was born in the old Cross Keys Tavern which stood where the First National Bank is now. It was then owned by his uncle and aunt-Mark and Elizabeth Dickson. He was raised on the Dickson farm north of town-the brick farmhouse now owned by the Woodals- but most of his boyhood was spent with an uncle, George C. Scott, a merchant in Jacksonville, Ill. Returning to McConnellsburg, he bought a drug store and was in that business until he retired about 1910. He served two appointments as postmaster in McConnellsburg. He had many friends, was ready to trust anyone--had a quick ready wit, was generous and kind. He was a life long member and trustee of the Presbyterian Church. After his retirement he made his [home] with his daughter Alice Dickson Nace. It was here he died in 1913."

From David Scott Nace, writing about the Nace home in McConnellsburg: "Grandfather Dickson died in the back bedroom. He had lived with Mother and Dad, how long I do not know. I do know that it was long enough that Mother said for years she could smell cigar smoke in the clothes closet of that room."

[288] Living with parents. Age of 34 conflicts with birth year on tombstone and other sources.

[NI148] "She was born and raised on the Sloan farm North of McConnellsburg--the oldest daughter in a family of seven sons and three daughters, she was its most loved member. All her life she was loving and giving and sacrificing for those around her. She was one of God's own saints, living for her family and her church. Her death at fifty-four was a tragedy for her family. She is buried in the Presbyterian Chruchyard beside the husband she so dearly loved. For several years after her death he never missed a day in going to her grave."
