I could not find any Dickerson or Dickinson in the 1830 census index for anywhere in Monmouth County. Here is what I found in 1840:
Howell Twp., Monmouth County
one male 10-15, one male 20-30, one female 40-50
The entries are mostly alphabetized, so the neighbor info is not available.
On page 278 in Howell Twp, Monmouth 1830
I also found a man named Carpenter Dikenson:
One male 15-20, one male 40-50, one female 30-40.
I suppose it entirely possible that the youth in this entry is James from the 1840 and maybe the lady in both entries is his mother? If the boy age 10-15 on the 1840 was born in late 1830 he could be a brother who didn't make it on the 1830 census. Just a guess.These were the only two entries I could find.
You know what, my great greatgrandparents also lived in Howell twp at this time =) They were married in Howell twp in 1844. James West & Lydia Johnson. Small world eh?
