D1-1) David Dimick was born on May 6, 1801 in Delaware Co. NY. Died 1/28/1885 in Ulysses NY. His wife was Rebecca born in 1807. She died 1/22/1877. Sometime in the 1830’s he moved to Broome County and stayed for a short period of time and then moved on to the Town of Ulysses (Trumansburg), NY. As best as I can tell David and Rebecca resided in the Podunk or Waterberg Road area of the Town of Ulysses. Records of the Methodist Church in Trumansburg in 1855 record a Mr D. Dimick and Mrs. Dimick (of Podunk Rd then crossed out and listed as Waterberg Road) as church members. Methodist church records of 1860 show that David Dimick and Mrs. Dimick were removed from the rolls of the church without a letter (a letter was a common way of officially resigning from the church). US census records as early as 1850 show David Dimick age 44, occupation laborer. David shows up on some records as Daniel. This seems to be because he made his small ‘d’ to look like an ‘al’. The 1860 US census lists Daniel age 57 (he aged 13 years in 10 years) living in the town of Newfield. The 1870 US census lists Daniel Dimick age 65 as a farm worker. Records of the Methodist Church in Trumansburg list Daniel and Rebecca as members. Cemetery records of the Grove Cemetery in Trumansburg list Rebecca Dimick as having died Feb 22 1877 at the age of 63 of congestion of the lungs. The same records list David Dimick as dying Feb 28 1885 at the age of 83 years, 8 months and 22 days of heart disease. The death is also listed in the Ithaca Journal of Mar 5 1885. Under the heading of “From the County House. … Daniel Dimich dropped down dead Feb 28th. He was buried by friends at Trumansburg”. Although the name is mispelled I am quite sure that is in fact David Dimick. Both David and Rebecca are buried in lot 141 Grove Cemetery in Trumansburg, NY David and Rebecca had six kids.

The 1870 US Census lists a George Dimick (Williams first child) living with a Louis Goodyear family as a farm laborer. This may have been a summer job for George who would have been about 17 years old.
