Possible but unproven Tertullus Dickinson "the younger"
Biography : Like many Loyalists, he and his family tried a number of locales before finally making permanent settlement. Neither Amos or his sons had any military service -- Amos seems to have been in debtor's prison in Dutchess County at the outbreak of the Revolution.

Amos, with his sons Darius, Arden and Peter, along with Tertullus Dickinson "the younger" (to distinguish him from Major Tertullus Dickinson), settled in Carleton County, where descendants of the name still reside.

The younger Tertullus may also have been a son of Amos, but I've seen no satisfactory proof of that quite reasonable supposition. Amos made several references to his "large family" in various land grant petitions, but unfortunately, neglected to provide either names or an exact number.
