Esther Dickinson followed the practices of her deceased husband, buying land when it was available. She purchased, in 1860 at age seventy, a farm in Conway that had been mortgaged to the bank for $2000.00. The farm was located in the town west of Deerfield and was owned by the Rice family, one of the early settlers of Conway.
