Homer Dickey's "The Genealogy of a Dickey Family" has William in (1815) coming from Kentucky to what became Fayette Co, IN (in 1819). His brother, Hugh Dickey, joined him in IN in 1816, one year later. Hugh had been living in Ohio since 1809, and sold his farm there in 1816.
(Don't know where this came from, but it obviously pertains to some other Dickey family) Nancy, May 10, 1802, with John and Maria Dec 16, 1812, Mercersburg PA.
He was born in Ireland and about 16 when the family sailed to America. He was probably the oldest of the five children who were left orphans by the sea disaster in which their father was lost. When the ship foundered these children and their mother were taken in a lifeboat to another vessel where they were cared for and brought to America. They settled in PA where William grew to manhood and married Sarah McClellan, a sister of Margaret who afterwards married his brother Hugh. These two brothers migrated to Kentucky about 1792, and settled near Georgetown, Scott Co. According to old tax records for that county, William was in possession of a farm of 150 acres in 1794 on which he lived until 1815 when he moved to Fayette Co., IN. In Fayette Co, he resided a short distance west of the present village of Harrisburg, on the farm on which he and his wife are buried.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with William by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with William:
