Bonnie G. White, a Dyches descendant of 4704 Firestone Drive S, Mobile, Alabama, 36609 wrote March 5, 1993:

 

"My g-g-g-grandfather was Josias Dyches of Barnwell County [created in 1798 from Orangeburg District].  He was born December 5, 1780 and is regarded as the son of William Dyches.  "Lt. William Dick" who served as a Revolutionary soldier under Gen. Francis Mar­ion, the "Swamp Fox."  Josias Dyches was married about 1801 to Sarah Johnston [Johnson?] who was born December 20, 1783.

 

In the 1810 census of Barnwell County "William Dy­che" is enumerated one page away from "Josias Dy­che."  In the 1820 census "William Dicks" and "Josias Dicks" are recorded in consecutive entries.  Ages of the wife and children of "Josiah Dicks" match the chil­dren of Josias Dyches and Sara Johnston Dyches.

 

On the same page with "William Dicks" and "Josias Dicks" in 1820 were enumerated Seth Dyches and John Dyches.  John Dyches was married there in 1811 to Elizabeth Freeman.  For the intervening census returns John Dyches reappeared, but in the 1860 cen­sus he was recorded as "John Dicks," still with Eliza­beth.

 

The father of Josias Dyches was listed as Lt. "William Dick" in the "DAR Patriot Index."  I had an elderly cousin, now deceased, who joined the DAR in 1939 under his name.  Lt. William Dyches was remarried in 1783 to Penelope Johnson who was born in 1760.  He died in 1832."
