Michael Dickert Family

The Dickert family of the SC Dutch Fork descend through Michael Dickert, only son of Peter Dickert. This family has been described by Yancey Dickert in "A History & Genealogy of Peter Dickert of S.C." (1992).

Peter Dickert arrived 19 Sept 1752 in Charleston, coming on the Cunliffe, with wife and four children: Mary Magdalene, age 19; Barbara, 16; Michael, 14; and Susannah, 11. The petition of Peter Dickert was heard 4 Nov 1752.

An initial 300 acre survey was located on Camping Cr., however, the family settled on Crims Cr. soon after coming to SC and, a second 300 acre tract (from previously surveyed land) was granted to Peter Dickert in 1764. SC Colonial records of the first grant are under the name of "FitchCart," in the second grant the name was rendered "Rickert."

The 300 acre grant on Crims Creek was sold in 1786 by Michael Dickert, Planter, to Matthias Quattlebaum. In this deed, Michael Dickert is described as son of Peter Dickert, to whom the land was granted.

Peter Dickert was a Justice of the Quorum and a Justice of the Peace. With John Adam Epting he obtained a grant from the King of England for St. John's Lutheran Church at Pomaria, SC in 1763 and he served as an Elder in the Church.
