The name of "Dickison Lumkin" appears on the so-called "Ten Thousand Name Petition" which was presented to the General Convention in Virginia in October of 1776, to disestablish the Anglican Church and promote religious freedom. His name appears with the group following Rev. Jeremiah Walker, minister of the Amelia (Nottaway) Baptist Church. The names Matthew Cabaniss and Noten (or Nolen?) Dickenson also appear in this same group.
Dickerson's wife Ann was listed as "Ann Lumpkin" in her father Matthew Cabaniss' will (1790).

Apparently the DICKERSON family had intermarried with the LUMPKIN family in early Virginia. A generation or two later, there was apparently an Ann DICKERSON who married a Mr. LUMPKIN, who lived in Amelia County, VA. I'm not sure which LUMPKIN she married, nor whom the child was, nor whether they were related to the earlier Dickerson LUMPKIN, but on 27 July 1787 the Overseers of the Poor in Amelia County, VA gave 5 pounds to Mr. Wm BELL "for keeping Ann Dickerson Lumpkin's child at the rate of 10/. per month for 10 months".
