Hi!Reading through the 1840 Howell Township, NJ census I came across a James Dickenson.His household consisted of a male child between the age of 10-15 yrs, and a male (presuming James) of 20-30 yrs listed as a farmer.Also in the household was a woman 40-50yrs. old.
More information is needed on this family.Is the woman Sarah Burdge (?), who is she and what is her connection to the family.Is this James' mother?Who is James' father?Where did they do go after the 1840 census?Are they connected to the Howell Works?
There was a "widow" by the name of Mrs. Dickenson/Dickinson/or Dickerson working at the village.Could this be the same family?
