John William DICKHUT, born November 10, 1796, in Muehlhausen, Thuringia, married Anna Elizabeth MOEHRSTEDT, born in the same town January 1, 1797. In 1843 the family, consisting of father, mother and three daughters, came to America and located in Quincy. In the spring of 1844 the family went to the country, where John William DICKHUT died in 1845, his wife living for thirty-three years more, de-parting this life in 1878. Amalie, the eldest of the daughters, was married to Jost SCHMIDT, born in the Grand duchy of Hessen, while Marie became the wife of Gottfried SCHMIDT, a brother of Jost SCHMIDT, both couples in 1852 moved to St. Paul, Minnesota. Johanna, the youngest of the daughters, was married to John Christoph DICKHUT, also born in Muehlhausen, who located in Quincy in 1854. John William and Anna Elizabeth (MOEHRSTEDT) DICKHUT had seven sons, August, Carl, Christoph, Adolph, Gottlob, Frederick, and William; all of them remained in this county, with the exception of William, who went to Nebraska. A large number of descendants are among the living.
