These dates imply a date of death before or about 22 Oct 1835 and also that Anna (Gilbert) Dickinson was for some reason excused from appearing to sign the deeds.
There was an unclaimed letter for David Dickenson in the New Richmond, Clermont Co OH post office, as of Jan 1, 1841. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohclecgs/newsletter/unclaimed.html

From Genforum: History of "New Providence": Kanona, Bath Township, Steuben Co NY. In 1795, there were only 160 people living at Bath (Cowan, 100) when Thomas Streeter and several others purchased lots #5 -_#11 in township #4, fourth range on the northeast side of the Cohocton River on 25 October. This settlement was northwest of the village of Bath, on the site of modern-day Kanona; Charles Williamson dubbed it "New Providence" (William Kersey, 1795 survey of New Providence). Thomas purchased lot #7, a total of 85.5 acres, from Charles Williamson for £201, 15 shillings money of New York (Bath, New York, Deeds, hereinafter BD, 1:7). A mortgage for this transaction, due on 1 October 1800, was made on 29 October 1795 and recorded in the records of Ontario County, New York (Ontario County Mortgage Liber 2:60, hereinafter OCML) on 2 November 1795.
The following advertisement appeared in The Bath Gazette and Genesee Advertiser on 21 December 1797 and ran each week through 1 February 1798: For Sale. The lot of Land formerly belonging to David Dickenson, four miles from the Town of Bath, in the County of Steuben, now in the possession of Thomas Stretor.-The land is of an excellent quality and situate on the Cohocton River, the road from Bath to Williamsburgh is through it. All persons are also, hereby forbid from cutting off any timber from the said mentioned land, those who are guilty may expect to be prosecuted.-The terms of sale will be made known by applying to the subscriber, near Judge Lindsley's, at Coeniska. 20 Dec. GEORGE GOODHUE.
If Thomas Streeter did succeed in selling his farm at "New Providence" by 8 February 1798, he quickly purchased another nearby as evidenced by the 1800 tax assessment roll for Steuben County. The interest in timber conservation further supports the assertion that the sawyers named by the Duke de la Rochefoucauld-Liancourt were the residents of "New Providence." The deeds of "New Providence" to Thomas Streeter and his companions were the first ones recorded in Steuben County. That Thomas' land had been previously owned by David Dickenson highlights the highly fluid nature of early land transactions in Williamson's enterprise. Judge Lindsley's was probably near or identical with the present-day village of Lindley, Steuben County, New York which is not far from the Cowanesque River, just across the Pennsylvania border. The previous owner of Thomas' "New Providence" plot was probably identical with the David Dickinson who purchased land near Lindley on 20 December 1793; he bought lot #5 in township one, third range (OCML 1:186). This transaction was recorded under the authority of Eleazar Lindsley "one of the Judges in and for the County of Ontario."
Clermont Co OH deed, dated Dec 1832, filed Oct 1835. His wife was living at the time deeds were written but did not sign on the blanks provided.
David Dickinson was first shown buying land in Steuben Co NY in 1809, as a resident of Pomfret, Niagara Co NY. When he sold this land in 1816, he was shown as a resident of Clermont Co OH; he first bought land there in 1819. Harriet stated in the county history book that she came from NY to Clermont Co in 1816 and her 1850 census shows she was born in Wyoming NY. The 1832/5 deed specifically lists four of David's children, and refers to adjoining land belonging to "Harriet " and to "Nancy," which may indicate that they had received their inheritance earlier. Marriage records for four of the children and further data on the sons can be found in later Clermont Co records. I have not yet checked for later references to the married daughters. I list an additional son Charles because Harriet's first son was Charles Dickinson Light, and there was a Charles Dickinson nearby in Clermont Co. In Steuben Co NY, David was closely associated with Elisha and Ebenezer Gilbert. These men are clues to David's wife Anna's family, the Gilberts.
Dickinson, Edward M. A New England Epic. The Descendants of Capt Richard Dickinson. New Milford (NH): Cabinet Press, 1945. First edition. 8vo, 80 pages. Nathaniel Dickinson was the first in his line to arrive in America from England. He and his wife, Anna, landed in Salem, Massachusetts in 1630. They moved to Watertown (MA), then to Wethersfield (CT), finally settling in Hadley (MA) in 1659. His descendants increased rapidly in this part of the Connecticut Valley and there are many of them living today in Northampton, Hatfield, Hadley, Amherst, Granby and in most states in the union.
