My ggrandmother, Martha A. (BROWN) LIGHT married J. W. DYES or DYSE on May 11, 1885. I have a copy of the marriage certificate filed in Milam County, Texas, and the last name is spelled both DYSE and DYES on this document. (I'll be glad to send a copy to any who is interested in one.) She was the widow of my ggrandfather, David Cicero LIGHT, who died abt. 1883, at the age of 45. He left his widow, Martha, with one son, age 10, and five daughters, ages 1 through 16. I have not been able to find any information on Mr. DYES/DYES/DICE. I believe that they were either divorced or he died within a few years following their marriage since she later married a man whose last name was AUSTIN. If anyone has any information.....I will appreciate it.
