other tenants of the building who
the deceased was he was, told that
she lived somewhere in the build

DICKSON: (2nd installment) v.
Colonel ALEXANDER DICKSON, ion of Colonel John
Dickson, was a large property owner, churoh leader and phil
anthropist. At times he served as a member of the County Court
but was never politically conspicuous. In his Will, on record in
Duplin County, he gave practically all of his large estate ffor :
"the use of a free school or schools for the benefit of the poor" ,
.which bequest has from that time been known as the DICKSON
CHARITY FUND and is still in existence. Years ago, it is said,
the account was carelessly handled by the County authorities
" and therefore the amount greatly diminished and has never di-,
rectly served the purpose intended by Colonel Bickson. Baring ,
recent years it has been carefully and efficiently managed and
its use is now intended for educational purposes only.
Colonel Dickson's wife was Elizabeth Molten and they had
no children. His tomb in the old Kentledge cemetery aear rX-iK
ansville bears the following inscription: "OLD HULL, the dead
he yet liveth, ALEXANDER DICKSON, The Philanthropist, died "
March 22, A. D. 1814, aged 68 years, Benevolence was the crown
ing principle of the deceased during his whole life. While he, wea r
a friend to man generally,: and to the Church (of which, he waa w
a consistent and worthy member), he was. especially a friend , s
to the poor. This friendship lut mentioned was clearly maaif est-! 5
ed by his last Will when he bequeathed most of his large estate
to educate the poor children of his County. Good seems to follow !,
his kind bequest" t" s-l un1"
At January term, 1858, of the County Court, a', committee .
