Nehemiah Dey (1742 - 1799) was the son of William and Margaret Anderson (Salter) Dey. He did not migrate to Kentucky with his brothers William, John and Kenneth. He married Rachel Wetherell and they had 5 children. Nehemiah was not mentioned in his father's will.

One of his sons was Nehemiah (1779 - 1817) who married Mary Conover. Their daughter was Catherine V. Dey.

Another son was Rune Dey (1781 - 1850). This is certainly a different name and any thoughts as to its origin would be appreciated. Rune married Ellen Unknown and they had 7 children.
Reuney N(ehemiah?) Dey (1805 - 1883) married Mary Ann Morris and his Will is available. Reuney N.'s brother was Ralph S. Dey. Ralph married Rebecca Potts and they had 8 children. One son was named Reuney N. Dey (1865 - 1910). Note that Reuney N. Dey (1805 - 1883) left a rather large sum to his namesake nephew.

Reuney N. Dey (1865 - 1910) married Lucy C. Rule and their marriage application appears below.

Rune Dey (1781 - 1850?) had a daughter Margaret Applegate Dey (1828 - ?) who married George Barclay Perrine. The named their only son Reuney Dey Perrine (1857 - 1943). Reuney (1857) married Catherine Conover Perrine.

Thus, there are several Reuney's and apparently all of them are in the family of Nehemiah Dey.
