Dickey, William a Presbyterian minister, was born Dec. 6, 1774, in York County, S. C. His parents soon after removed to Kentucky, where he grew to manhood. He obtained an education with much self-denial, and in 1802 was licensed to preach. He labored fourteen years with the churches of Salem and Bethany, Ky., and then removed to Washington, Lafayette County, Ohio, and soon after to Bloomingburg, Ohio, where he remained forty years. He died in December, 1857. — Wilson, Presbyterian Hist. Almanac, 1864, p. 112.
