Dye Family Genealogy Forum
Martin Dye b. 16 Sep 1786 Moore Co, NC married Sarah Barbara Hughes (1786-1857) in 1802. They were parents of William Westley Dye, my GG grandfather. I can't find them in 1820 but all the other censuses say Moore Co. Most of the trees list this Martin Dye (b. 1786) as the son of Martin Hopkins Dye in KY. That seems unlikely since Martin Hopkins Dye was born in KY, died in KY, that he would have gone to NC long enough to have Martin and move back but Martin 1786 stays in NC. I question that Martin Hopkins Dye was Martin 1786's father. There is however a Martin Dye in Warren Co. which is a lot closer. Is it possible the Warren Co. Martin is Moore Co. Martin 1786's father? Also the date listed for Martin 1786's death on all the trees on ancestry is 17 Jul 1856. But he's listed in the 1860 census still for Moore Co. so that death date can't be right although I don't know who's death date it is either. His wife however is not present in 1860. I'm new at this so maybe I'm missing something but can anyone clear up who Martin Dye 1786s real parents are so I'm sure I have the right parents?
