B.H. Dye and Cornelia A. Miami County, Ohio. Who are they?
Posted by: Billene Nicol (ID *****1699) Date: June 01, 2010 at 16:31:56

From Ohio:

I was out recently taking photos of headstones and happened to snap one of each side of a large stone on which each of the four sides has Dyes listed and their individual markers are nearby (I assume). My main mission on that day was not to gather photos of Dyes and I was running short on time, but since I know there are lots of Dyes in my family line, and this stone was so large, I stopped and snapped the four sides. This is in Casstown Cemetery (Miami County, Ohio)

On one side is the inscription:

B. H. Dye
Cornelia A
wife of
B. H. Dye
Born 1842
Died 1879
Aged 37 Years

On an adjacent side is this inscription (This is all on one side):

Laura Dye
Born - 1866
Died - 1918

Charles J.
Clarance S.
Cornelia P.
Agens F.
Infant Children of
B.H. & C.A. Dye

I am assuming the B.H. & C.A. on this side are the the same B.H. and Cornelia A. of the other side.

I do not know who B.H. and Cornelia A. Dye are in the family line. I also do not know who Laura Dye Carpenter is who is listed above the infant children, unless she is a daughter of B.H. and Cornelia that lived to be married.

The third side lists John C. Dye and his wife Eliza with their dates, but I have them in my tree already, so I know who they are and I have posted a copy of that pic here:

The fourth side has :

William C. Dye 1854 - 1897

Then there is a line drawn below that as if to leave a place for a spouse, but it is blank beneath the line. I have several William Dyes in my tree, but none with those dates.

So I need help in identifying B.H. and Cornelia A., Laura Dye Carpenter and William C. Dye.


P.S. Glad to share my photos and will be going out soon to get more now that I know where they are and that I have many Dyes in my line, most of whom are buried in Miami County, Ohio in various cemeteries.

Please feel free to email me or post back here.
