http://www.uh.edu/~jbutler/gean/jamesdye.html
James Dey, Son of John Laurens Dey
James Dey was born in 1720 in Staten Island (?), New York, and died on April 4,1764 in New Jersey. He married Sarah Leach about 1740 and nothing is known of her parents at this time.


Will of James Dey/Dye

"At the date of the codicil to will of James Dye, son of John Laurens Dey, all his children were under twenty one years of age. The codicil is dated Dec. 13, 1763. The two claims referring to the share of a deceased son or daughter are identical and as follows: I will and ordain that if any of my sons should die before they arrive to the age of 21 years or marry, then the share of the deceased to be divided among the survivors. In case of the daughters the share is divided among them. James Dye, gives his wife the use of the plantation, three cows, two horses, and some necessary household goods, ect., for the use and benefit of herself and her children to use one year. All his other personalty is ordered sold as soon as practicable and at the end of one year after his death the plantation and personalty preserved are to be sold. This as will be seen could have no other result than a seperation of the family, each to look out for himself and herself. The property or rather proceeds of the sales was to be divided into sixteens, two sixteens to his wife, and each of his sons, and one sixteenth to each of his daughters."

In 1805, in company with his family and that of his father-in-law, (one of the Perrine's) he emigrated to New Bethel, Ohio, but not long afterward he located near what is now Cold Springs, Campbell county, Kentucky, and engaged extensively in farming, being among the pioneer families of Campbell county.

John Dye, one of the sons of Isaac Dye, was reared on the farm near Cold Springs and prior to his marriage, when quite a young man, spent several years working on flat-boats on the Ohio, Mississippi, Black and White rivers in Arkansas and elsewhere and, in fact, made his start that way. In the meantime he bought a farm near the old homestead, and on May 28, 1840, married Mary Ware and engaged in farming the most of his life. He died at the home of his son, J. Frank Dye, in Highlands, back of Newport, in 1885, at the age of seventy-three years, his widow surviving him until 1892 when she died at the age of seventy-three years. They were the parents of six children, three sons and three daughters."
