Eastern Tn Dye families
1. Martin Dye came to North Farnham, VA 1666. He MarriedMargaret (Wright)(Sesssion)DyeThey are the only Dye s recorded in North Farnham, in the late 1600s early 1700s,He had sons Arthur and Thomas and daughter, Sarah Dye born when he was nearing 60 about 1700.She had an out of wedlock birth in 1721 with Charles Dye born 1704 died Aug 1726.There were two Charles Barbers living in North Farnham Parish, VA in the earily 1700's.Charles Barber Jr. born 11 Aug 1704 in North Farnham Parish, North Farnham, Richmond county, VA and died 24 Nov 1726.I believe him to be the father of Thomas Dye born 1721.Charles Dye Sr. born 19 June 1676 in North Farnham Parish, Farnham, Richmond County, VA , married Mary Glascock and died 27 Nov 1726 Barber near the Dye family.The Martin Dye- Sarah Dye existence has been verified by Bart Dye who is the child of one of Sarah's brothers. Thomas Dye born 1721 could not be the child of Thomas born 1702 becaus the male DNA does not line up.I am sure that when we get one of the Charles Barber prodagy to do DNA it will line up with them.
Reference is made to a Thomas Dye in 1703 of the Va. Colonial Abstracts Vol.
17 pg 48.This individual could upon speculation be a brother to Arthur
Dye & Son of Martin Dye.Further mention of a Thomas Dye born 10 April
1721 is made on page 56 of the Regosters of North Farnham Parish.
We are looking for family members that are Barber to take the DNA test to secure the connection.
2. Sarah Dye was born ? and Died? had a bastard bond in 1721, North Farnham Parish that a neighbor Charles Barber paid on her behalf, we do not know if it was Barber that fathered Thomas or not.
