I got my information from the 1840 and 1850 Federal Census for Carroll County Arkansas. I find reference that Brittain Smith left Power of attorney for some land to be sold in Overton County, Tenn to a Joseph Dickerson, but I can't determine anything from it. Joseph F. did marry Livicia Smith, daughter of Brittain Smith. Joseph moved to Carrol Co. AR the same county that Brittain Smith settled. I have never found death dates for Joseph F. and Levicia or places of death. They are listed on Johnson Co. 1870
Census living with a son and his family. Other than this I have not been able to find anyhthing on Joseph F & Livicia.
He is on the tax list for Carroll Co. In my research there, I have not been able to find anything on any Dickersons that lived there, yet I know of two famililie the other being a George M. Dickerson which I believe to be Joseph's brother'
