He lived in North Carolina, Moore Co. He had three sons old enough to be in the Civil War, David Turner Dye (my gGF), John M Dye b. 1840 and Martin Evander Dye b. abt 1846 (there are two Martin Evander Dye's, his uncle had the same name, was also in the war and was b. 1832). I think I've traced John M Dye via findagrave.com to 1911 and he/wife appear to be the couple buried in Buffalo Cem., Moore Co. which was their church. David talked to my grandmother a lot about his brother being killed in the war and how it turned him against the war but there are only two Dyes listed as being killed from NC and neither are my ancestor so I'm baffled. There's a lot written about David Turner Dye, see http://www.turnerchapel.org and click on "church history". David Turner Dye, John M Dye and Martin Evander Dye were all 3 in the Civil War but only one died, either John M or Martin Evander. They lived in Moore Co but their residence is listed as Cumberland Co on the online Civil War lists that I can find. Maybe they had recently moved or something but it appears all 3 were in the same unit having joined at different times. I think it's the younger Martin Evander Dye that was killed because I can't find him in a census after 1850 but the UDC have no record of him being killed. They have his record of being in the war but it's not on his card that he was killed. Any info. appreciated.
