Dear Ms. Linda,
Yes, I am a descendant of Henry Dyess, Jr. who was the son of Henry Dyess Sr. and Winniford Boyette Dyess. Henry Dyess, Jr. and his wife Martha Smith Dyess are said to have died in Sanderson, Florida in 1870 and 1872 respectively. Their son Ezekiel Dyess lived and was buried in Olustee, Florida. His grave and his other family members are marked. There are several cemeteries around Sanderson, Florida--I am in the process of getting a stone from the VA for Henry Dyess, Jr. based on his war of 1812 service and would like to place it in the cemetery he was buried--however I might place it in the cem. with his son Ezekiel Dyess and family. I have never seen the source of the Sanderson, Florida info that Henry Dyess Jr. died and was buried there. He and Martha do no show up on the 1870 census. Any help appreciated. Most of my Dyess information has come from the Folks Huxford Books and infomation from Pam Trammel who wrote a book on the Dyess family. I would love to have any dates on your ancestor Elizabeth Dyess who married into the Harnage family. I have really nothing on her. I will be glad to share what I have. Thanks for emailing me. Sincerely, John Burnett
