So, this would be William Dixon in 1850:

1850 United States Federal Census about Wm W Dixon
Name:        Wm W Dixon
Age:        18
Birth Year:        abt 1832
Birthplace:        Maine
Home in 1850:        Kittery, York, Maine
Gender:        Male
Family Number:        309
Household Members:        
Name        Age
Thomas Dixon        55 b. 1795 Maine; Depu Sheriff
Martha Dixon        49 b. 1801 Maine
Wm W Dixon        18 b. 1832 Maine **
Charles Dixon        15 b. 1835 Maine
Sarah Dixon        9 b. 1841 Maine
Lucy Dixon        7 b. 1843 Maine

That's as far back as I can go with the census. On this one page in the census there is an Emery family, another Dixon family and a Lamos family. If you could find a book about the history of Kittery, Maine I wouldn't be surprised if there was something written about your family since they go way back in this town.

Hope this helps. Annie
