1850 census District 2 Mason Co., KY


We drove on down to Mays Lick (about 10 further south on 68) - we had never been there - to check that cemetery for Dye's. It is still in the same place as mentioned in Daniel Drake's book, but the original Baptist church is gone that sat on the cemetery site. There is a newer one across from the cemetery on Pike St. We walked through all of the older part and only came across a few Dyes. There were a lot of empty spaces, so I imagine the markers are long gone. I took a photo of the oldest area were there were a lot of the Drakes and one Dye marker and will send it on if anyone is interested when I get them back.

Here are the Dye's I found:

Lemira Dye wife of Madison Dye b. Feb 14, 1826 d. April 11, 1888 (this one in the area where the Drakes were).

w.w. Dye 1854 - 1934

David P Dye 1861 - 1904
Mary D. 1860 - 1894
Hiram Dye 1824 - 1899
Martha 1824 - 1865
Leanna B. Dye 1849 - 1893
Lizzie E. Dye 1847 - 1865

David Dye b. Feb 9, 1797 d. May 7, 1866
Susanna, wife of David d. Aug 12, 1822 aged 25 yrs 7 m 13 days
Nancy, wife of David b. Jan 9, 1801? d. Nov 28, 1977

Dr. W.W. Dye 1849 - 1933
Susan Dye 1859 - 19??

James Dye b. Sept 23, 1802 d. July 4, 1868 &
???? b. Jan 18, 1811 d. Aug 18, 1860?

Elizabeth Dye b. Nov 22, 1845 d. April 3, 1886?

a question mark after the date indicates that the last number was indecipherable

Daniel Drake also made this comment in his book: "All the first settlers of Mays Lick were, either by association or profession, Baptists, and had belonged to the church at Scotch Plains, of whom the Rev. William Van Horne was the worthy pastor". Also:"Mays Lick, as I told you in my former letter, was a colony of East Jersey people, amounting in the aggregate to 52 souls. Mr Tenant, who married aunt Lydia, was a West Jersey-man, & he settled near the great road (now Rt68)2 miles from us. Jonathan Stout & Abraham Stout and William Dye, each of whom lived within a mile, were all from the same part of that state".
