Excerpt from Genealogy of the Dickey Family After the decease of Mr. John Dickey, the author of this Genealogy, in Leominster, July 25th, 1894, his widow placed the manuscript of this volume in the hands of the publishers for the purpose of placing before members of the family and others interested, the very valuable material which had been collected by him after much labor and painstaking research, that it might not be lost to future generations and all might share alike the fruits of his labor. It was not until the latter part of Mr. Dickeys life that he contemplated the publication of the work, which had occupied many years of his time, but the wealth of material gathered and the interest developed by his extended correspondence led him to hope that it might sometime be preserved in permanent form. With the laudable desire to share this rich legacy with others and carry out his wishes, this volume is published. That the work has been exceedingly difficult can be easily realized when it is stated that several hundred letters to descendants of the family have been returned unanswered. To those who have responded are due the many facts and dates of later years herein contained. No claim is made, of course, that such data are complete. The untimely death of Mr. Dickey has made completeness practically impossible. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
