Thanks for the corrected date.

I could not find a post mentioning multiple Thomas Dias/Dyas/Dicus men.

Somerset Co., Maryland was just across the Potomack River/Chesapeake Bay from Westmoreland Co., Virginia. Many families went back and forth from what I've read.

Most wills didn't survive, frustrating but not surprising. I hadn't stumbled on Michall before. Just Jane and I debate whether she was a second wife or the wife of a son named Thomas Junior. That would be my only evidence for the existance of a junior and I really think it more likely she is a second wife.

"William of Thomas Dias" got cattle marks registered in Somerset County, MD. I haven't seen the original--just a transcript. My only evidence for his existance.

I'm shopping for ancestors for a Henry Dias/Dyess who died in the 1730's in Bath/Beaufort Co., NC leaving five children and a wife. He was born before 1710. This is a side line but I wam really trying to trace William Beasley. Thomas Dyas and William Beasley were clearly neighbors in Westmoreland County, as cited in more than one deed.

I had Thomas Dyas as born 1616-1626 so we agree there.

Susan
