Hello Oceanridge and aghadowey, 
Gosh, that ten years disappeared quickly!  I'm afraid I cannot contribute anything to the Camus Dixon/Dickson family question as I have not made any progress with my Robert in all this time.  There is simply too little to go on.
I have had a look at the records for Coleraine where there are a number of Dixon families, but once again, the scant information I have is not enough to even suggest a link to any of them.
If either of you find anything that looks remotely possible, I'll be ever so grateful for your input.

Can eliminate a few Dixons to start with-
1) Thomas Dixon (c1820-1907), Camus, had a son Robert who stayed in Ireland
2) Robert John Dixon (c1821-1888), Camus, never married
3) a possibly James Dixon, Camus, was married before 1831 (James' name from son James' marriage but I suspect that this is an error and father actually was Daniel
These Dixons were Reformed Presbyterian & Presbyterian.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
