I am searching for a Dicey or Dicy Austell or Austill born between 1825-1833 in Alabama (middle name is possibly Jane). She was married in 1857 (single, age 30) to a James Madison (widowed or divorced, age 36) in Edmonson Co., KY. His two youngest children, Rutha Jane and James W Madison are occasionally listed as her children, but likely born to his first wife Susan Blake (deceased mid-1850s). James (Wesley) Madison died in the 1890s and she was later married to a Joel Franklin Bledsoe.
