Rebecca DyeRebecca Dye was born on July 27, 1738, probably in Middlesex Co., NJ. Rebecca married William Jewell about 1756 and they had at least 5 sons. William died on September 16, 1775 in Cranbury, Middlesex Co., NJ. I have not found any documentation that Rebecca married after William's death, although she survived him by 38 years so it is possible. I have not found her listed as head of household on any early New Jersey records at this time. Rebecca is listed as an heir in her father's will on September 4, 1784, and she inherited 35 pounds. Rebecca Dye Jewell died on March 1, 1813, probably in New Jersey although at least one of her sons emigrated to New York.

William Dye

William Dye was born on August 1, 1740, probably in Middlesex Co., NJ. William married Phebe Mounteer on January 24, 1762 in New Jersey and they had 8 children. William is listed as an heir in his father's will on September 4, 1784, and he inherited 30 pounds. The family emigrated from Middlesex Co., New Jersey to Mason Co., Kentucky sometime between 1788 to 1793 with the Shotwell, Morris, Stout, Drake, Arms & Cahill families. William's brothers John & Kenneth also emigrated to Kentucky. William Dye purchased 300 acres of land in Mason Co., KY on May 3, 1793. (Deed book A, page 277, the spelling is William Die). In a book of memoirs written by Daniel Drake, he recounts visits to "Old Billy Dye's" house, which he says was "one of the fashionable places of resort for the young people of the neighborhood." The account by Dr. Drake is uncomplimentary, stating that "Old Billy" beat his slaves, and that his sons drank and his daughters were a disgrace to him. (William's youngest daughter Abigail had a child out of wedlock before marrying her first cousin Peter in 1805, so possibly she is the daughter referred to.) William Dye died in 1806 in Mason Co., KY. Phebe Mounteer Dye married her widowed brother-in-law, Kenneth Dye, on Sept. 16, 1815 in Mason Co., KY. Phebe Mounteer Dye died in 1818 in Mason Co., KY. In her will she left bequests to her children, and several to her granddaughter Eliza Dye, who was the illegitimate daughter of Abigail Dye.
