I know Martin Dye 1786-1856 was born in Moore Co., NC. A lot of trees list Hopkins Dye as his father but none of them say where Hopkins was born. Someone emailed me this:
In Misc Records of Moore Co by Rassie Wicker, I found a deed reference for a Thomas Collins to Hopkins Dye dated June 15, 1782, 100 acres, book G, page 78.It's signed by William Seale, Thomas Collins, Jr, and Martin Dye.
A Martin Dye is listed on the 1815 landowner list for Moore Co.(Same Misc Records book)
