You are looking at his father's generation. My Thomas would not have been listed in the 1790 Census except possibly as a child in his father's household (which means no name). He still probably wouldn't have been a head of household in 1800 and could have been either in North Carolina or Georgia then. His wife's sisters were married in Warren Co, GA and he was married in Hancock Co, GA in 1811 so he could have lived in either before 1810. He was in the Census of Hancock Co in 1820 and 1830, then moved to Talbot Co and died there in 1839.

There were two Dixon/Dickson families in Hancock Co, GA. The better known group was from (brothers or cousins) Michael and Thomas (NOT my Thomas) from Virginia through Person Co, North Carolina and then Georgia.

Thomas Dixon is one of those names, I think every Dixon family in the country must have used the name in every generation.
