About Deacon Isaac Dickerman

From Herman Robinson Carson, DD, 1950:

Isaac Dickerman was one of the most notable men in our family.

Born in New Haven, he accomplished many things in his lifetime.

Isaac Dickerman served more terms in the Connecticut House of Burgesses and more years than any man. It was he who did the negotiating that moved Saybrook Academy up to New Haven where it was named Yale University. We still have records of his puirchases of nails and other materials for the first building which stands presently within the quadrangle and records of his superintendency of construction.

He set an example of patience, statesmanship and Christian living.

Isaac Dickerman was seventh child & second son of LIEUT. ABRAM & MARY (COOPER) DICKERMAN, grandson of THOMAS & ELLEN (WHITTINGTON) DICKERMAN and JOHN & MARY (WOOLEN) COOPER, all my ancestors. He married MARY ATWATER in New Haven on June 30, 1709, the daughter of JONATHAN & RUTH (PECK) ATWATER. To this union was born 10 children, one of them being my ancestor, SAMUEL DICKERMAN (buried in the Mt. Carmel Cem.,Hamden). Isaac Dickerman married Elizabeth (Alling) Morris, widow of John Morris after Mary's death on 12 Jun 1754 in the second Congr. Church

Isaac was deacon of the First Church (now Center Church)until he left and joined the White Church (2nd Church) on April 2d, 1754 leaving the church a silver Paul Revere cup at his death.

He was a Captain of the Trainband, and a representative (deputy) to the General Assembly in Hartford for many terms.
