2.  1820 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #8 of 14 list was roughly alphabetized, indexed "Dancy"; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1820 NC Greene Co. Roll M33_82 p. 256 Ln. 2 (of S's) Simmons Demcy 101200-00100-0-200 0000-1000
These data indicate:
No., Race, Gender  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 white male 9 or under 1810-1820 = Charlton (b. 1819)
1 white male 16-18 1801-1804 = Brother?
2 white males 19-25* 1794-1801 = Dempsey
= Brother?
1 white female 16-25 1794-1804 = Mary 
2 people engaged in agriculture
1 female slave 13 and under 1806-1820 = ?
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
Dempsey is either in the wrong age class here or in 1830.  Given that the couple appears to have married ca. 1818, that would place Dempsey's age at ca. 1795.  Listed one line above James SIMMONS, who is one line above widow Susana (__?__) SIMMONS.  These three are the only SIMMONS'es in the county.

3.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #19-20 of 66 list roughly alphabetized; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1830 NC Pitt Co. Roll 124 p. 50 Ln. 10 Simmons Dempsey 101 000 100 - 120 001 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1825-1830 = Dempsey (b. 1827)
1 male 10-14 1815-1820 = Charlton (b. 1819)
1 male 40-49 1780-1790 = Dempsey
1 female 4 or under 1825-1830 = Nancy (b. 1829)
2 females 5-9 1820-1825 = Elizabeth (b. 1824)
= Catharine (b. 1820)
1 female 30-39 1790-1800 = Mary 
The senior Dempsey is either in the wrong age class here or in 1820.  He is the only SIMMONS in Pitt County.  James SIMMONS is still in Greene County.
