Hi Barbara, Thanks for your message.I really appreciate you taking the time to list the census info.I had some of it, but some I did not.
You are correct that STELLA JANE DYE is the daughter of AMANDA MANCHESTER, but her father was WILFRED MARION DYE (shown on the 1860 census as MARION).Apparently WILFRED MARION DYE (my gg-grandfather) was a scoundrel.I found him married to a CATHERINE HEAVNER in Pike Co., IL in July of 1867 and AMANDA MANCHESTER divorced him in Brown Co., OH in April 1869.He and AMANDA had two children, my grandfather, AUGUSTUS TAYLOR DYE b. 1864 and STELLA JANE DYE b. 1866.I am guessing, but I think my grandfather must have been named for WILFRED MARION DYE's brother, AUGUSTUS, who may have been killed in the Civil War, although he was a little young or may have died during that period of time.I have not been able to locate any Civil War record for AUGUSTUS DYE, nor have I been able to find anything on any of the other brothers listed in the 1860 census, soI don't know what happened to them.
The other correction I need to make is that HIRAM MANCHESTER, AMANDA MANCHESTER's father, was the son of CHARLES MANCHESTER (a minister in Clermont and Brown Counties).HIRAM and ABEL were brothers.HIRAM was killed at Shiloh during the first two weeks of his enlistment in the Civil War (at age 40+).His grave is at Shiloh.ABEL MANCHESTER was also a minister and strongly anti-slavery.That is the reason that the family left Fleming County, Kentucky, because several other ministers of his faith had been tarred and feathered and, in two instances, killed for their beliefs.
Thanks again for the census info.If anyone can find anything on any of the DYE brothers, I would love to hear from you.Thanks.
