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
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
Lucy Gerrard, age 29
Benjamin Gerrard, age 28
Ellen Gerrard, age 24
Joseph Gerrard, age 21
George Gerrard, age 17

Full Text of History of Vermillion County Illinois -- Chapter XXI Part 2
John W. Fisher is the brother of Michael Fisher, and his younger days were spent in very much the same way as was his brother. He was born in Carroll township. He married Miss Mary L. Dye in 1861. He later moved to Kansas, but tired of the country, and came back to Vermilion County, where he rented a farm of his father, and afterward bought land on which he raised stock and sold it in the city markets. Mr. John Fisher was the father of eight children. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher are members of the Presbyterian church, and well esteemed.
