Note - Mary Lucy "Lou" Fisher was the sister of John Samuel Dye who married Mahettable Gerrard. Although they are living next door to each other, the above John & Hattie Dye info is not consistent with the ages & children they should have at that time. I do not find them anywhere else in 1870, so it may be them with lots of census taker error. The family should be:
John Dye, age 32, b. KY
Mahettable, age 32, b. OH
Malinda (Lena), age 10
Thea Etta (Ettie), age 9
Ida, age 4
Howard Sherman, age 3
Bertha, age 1
Mahettable Gerrard Dye did have younger siblings with some of those names - but in 1870 her younger siblings would be ages:
John Gerrard, age 31
Benjamin Gerrard, age 28
Ellen Gerrard, age 24
Joseph Gerrard, age 21
Lucy Gerrard, age 19
George Gerrard, age 17
