Good Luck Joyce!  I've been searching for the John Dixon (b Virginia/d Mississippi) who was father to my Zachariah (Dixon-8198).  Along the way I've adopted quite a few orphaned profiles.  The profile you asked about (Dickson-550) is one that I adopted, and I don't know the answer to your questions. The person who added the profile to WikiTree is no longer active. Hope you find what you're looking for!  Cheers, Liz (3x gr-granddaughter of Zachariah Dixson/Dickson).

update - changed WikiTree ID for Zachariah

There is a John Dickson in my family tree that moved with his. Either from York, PA to SC. He's buried in the oldest cemetery in SC in PICKENS not was originally named Twenty Six Mile.

My tree is still waiting to be filled out because I can get back to Alexander Latimer Dixon born 1826 ( might have been Dickson after Alex) and I can't find the tree at that point. Still searching for his father and have hit a wall! Ugh. There were two Dickson brothers that moved to SC by way of NC and PA before that.

If anyone can make the connection for Alexander Latimer Dixon's father I have found the top of the line for John. Can't remember his brother's name I'm not looking at my notes right now, sorry. Will go dig them up ....

They don't ring a bell, but PA to the Carolinas sounds like paths a lot of Quakers took in early 1700s. Check out the descendants of Henry Dixon (lots of Johns): https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Dixon-Descendants-347 

PS - found a profile for an Alexander Dixon born in NC in 1827: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dixon-4119

and one in NY b 1829: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dixon-7424
