I just typed a long post to you and it was lost.

So, I'll try again... The forces that be don't want me to share with you today..

I show that THOMAS DIXON is NOT listed in the 1790 CRAVEN OR PITT County, North Carolina Census.

According to my research notes, I show that WILLIAM DIXON the son of WALTER DIXON, SR. of Pitt County, North Carolina, lists as his son a THOMAS DIXON, who died in 1790, probably prior to the census being taken.

I also show that this THOMAS DIXON and his brother JAMES DIXON, according to Beaufort County, North Carolina Deed Book #6, Page# 503. Dated: June 3, 1785. JAMES DIXON, sells to Thomas Respess, 300 acres of land on Durham's Creek. Originally patented by: THOMAS DIXON, and "I, the said, JAMES DIXON." Witness: Richard and George Gregg.

Many members of this Dixon family removed from Beaufort and Pitt County, N.C. to pursue land grants in Georgia and other states.

Now, not so as to confuse you because my Dixon ancestors just love to rename their children after earlier family names...

JOHN DIXON, who is another son of WALTER DIXON, SR., of Pitt County, N.C. also had a son by the name of THOMAS DIXON, who was born about 1745-1750. He married Mary and together we are aware of his will in which he names his two young daughters, Mary and Martha. He dies on October 29, 1780. both girls, were under the age of 18. So, this eliminates these two possibly being your Thomas Dixon. But, I'll continue to research and if I come across any other possibilities I'll send you the information. Sorry, it's taken me so long to get this information to you.
