Benjamin Dyke Sr.; sister Sadie Sands m. Ted Sands

I am trying desperately to find information on my fathers ancestors. Have very little to go on.

My father was Benjamin Arthur Dyke Jr. b. Oct. 1929 in Huntington WV.; he changed or used Benny and believe his father did too.
Bible given to him by his father shows fathers name as Benjamin Arthur Dyke Sr. and mother as Anna (believe Johnson) mother died when jr. was anywhere around 8-12 years old.My father was raised by aunt (Sr. sister) Sadie and her husband Ted Sands (or a variation Sans Sainz Sanns etc.) Sadie and Ted had 2 daughters Dorothy and Mary Catharine (Katherine?)
I don't know whatever happened to Sr., Sadie, her husband or their other children. I know sr. was still alive through my fathers teenage years and that my father joined the service at 16 years of age. He met my mother in Ohio.

Any, any, any information, leads, or anything is so very greatly appreciated.
