Robert B. DICKSON was born in England or Scotland ca. 1840 to James and Margaret[Muir] Dickson. They emigrated to Liberty Township sometime before 1850 [they'rein the 1850 census]. Robert had an older brother, James (born 24 Jan. 1838,who married Mary A. Cherry and who later settled in Natchez, MS), and sixyounger siblings: John, Agnes, Charles (married Emma; died 1878), Elizabeth,George, and Willliam (born 25 May 1854 and married Martha Jane Cary). The1850 census for their farm also lists a Charles Muir, age 33, from Scotland;he may well have been Margaret's brother. Robert's first job, at age 16,was feeding cattle for J.G. Longmire. Later he was a brakeman and freightconductor on the Hannibal & St. Joe railroad and then spent some timein the confectionary business in Palmyra. He finally entered the law officeof M.L. Hollister, Marion Co. District Atty, and read law with him for ayear, completing his legal studies in the Hannibal law office of S.S. Allen.He was admitted to the Missouri Supreme Court in 1869. On Jan. 3, 1872 or1875, he married Alice Carrie Antoinette Lansing/Mead [the county marriagerecord gives her name as Meed, and apparently she had children older thanmy great grandmother so she must have been married before -- I assume toMEED/MEAD]. Robert and Alice came to California in April 1875. In 1880 theyadopted my great grandmother in San Francisco. I'm trying to figure out whattheir connection with the birth parents might have been.
