Notes for Mary "Polly" Dye Forman

William Dye married Phebe Monteer. Came to Mason Co., KY from Plainsfield NJ with the Shotwell, Morris, Stout, Drake, Arms & Cahill families in 1788. William Dye purchased 300 acres of land in Mason Co., KY May 3, 1793. (Deed book A, page 277, the spelling is William Die).

Family Bible of William Dye and his wife Phebe Monteer. The Bible record reads:
"William Dye born August 1st [?] 1740
Phebe Monteer born March the 3d 1744
Married January 24th 1762
Children born to the above named
John Dye born November 15th 1762
Joseph Dye born February 6th 1766
William Dye born December 6th 1768
Monteer born Deceember [sic] 12th 1770
Ruth born February 19th 1775
Mary Dye born March 12th 1777
Margaret Dye born December 12 1780
Abigail Dye born February 17th 1785
Eliza Dye born June 2nd 1803"

This Bible is in the possession of David Dye of Millersburg, Kentucky. Eliza is apparently a grandchild, the daughter of Abigail. **Note that Luke Dye is not a son of William and Phebe. He is their grandson, and the son of John Dye who was married to Margaret. My information indicates her name was DeWitt. Luke is the ancestor of David Dye who has the Bible.

As to whether Phebe was a Mount or a Monteer, I cannot say, but their Bible indicates "Monteer".
