Is it possible to find family location from a census?

I'm trying to determine where a potential ancestor(s) lived in 1820 and 1830. Specifically L. Ditch is in the 1820 census in St Mary Parish, Louisiana and Robt Ditch is in the 1830 census in St Mary Parish, Louisiana. The 1830 census is probably enumeration district 284. Though the 1820 census page doesn't have and ED, is there a way of determining the location from the name of the census taker? The two are both 12 doors down (if the listing on the census page can be used as such) from a Hyacinthe Bernard and I can probably locate the land that he owned. Is there any way to determine where these folks lived? Thanks for any help that you can provide.
