The Dicksons of Claremont
Cumberland County, Nova Scotia

John DICKSON & Jenny ATKINS emigrated from Ireland to Nova Scotia about 1830 and settled at first in the River Philip valley. Around 1850 they moved to Claremont, a mountain a few miles east of Springhill, where they and many of their children stayed.

Other Cumberland County families appearing in my ancestry include CARTER, CRAWFORD, DOYLE, PURDY, SEAMAN and TRUEMAN.
