Dear Tomi,

I appreciate your input.......this has been a brick wall for me. Do you have a Family Group of Reuben Dye (incl. wife and children)?

What you are saying is the Mary that married Thomas was of this family.....right? And Reuben is the son of Vincent......right?

Who was Vincent's father and mother as I don't have any info. on this branch of the Dyes?

This line has been a nightmare for me........all help is greatly appreciated.

Bless you,

Hi all
I am Tomi and I was reading these messages. I hope you don't mind if I add a piece of information to help you clear up your confusion.
I looked at my records and if you are discussing the family of Amos and Mary (Chamberlain) I have some info for you.
I have Amos and Mary Chamberlain had a son-John B. Dye. John B. Dye had two sons, Thomas and Henry. Thomas married a Mary Dye. You believe this is the dau of Henry.

I have the dau of Henry was born about 1835-per the 1850 Census she was listed at 15 years old. Therefore she wasn't even born in 1827 which is the marriage date of Thomas and his wife. Per the 1850 Census Thomas was in TX and his wife was listed at 41 years old, which means she was born about 1809. I agree with Kim Marion's evaluation in her message dated 2-21-2005 that the said Mary Dye is the dau of Reuben Dye, s/o Vincent and Sarah(Arteps). I found info on Reuben in the Hardesty's History record that Reuben had 6 sons and 1 dau. His sons William and Benjamin left VA and ended up in TX. Kim also noted that the 1870 TX census reflected the widow of Benjamin, Sarah, was living with Thomas and Mary.

I hope this helps you.
