HI Katie. I looked at the record.My grandfather was listed; Richmond Dyess. b.11, Mar.1878,ethnic B, Registered Clarke, MS.I know his mother was Rebecca (Becky) Dyess (black) and she had a number of Dyess children besides Richmond, 2 names I know; Carrie and Rufus (1900 census, Clarke Cty).The 1870 Alabama Census, which I have not seen, just information when doing searches on line, list a Richmond Dyess, which could not be my grandfather, he was born in 1878.I will go ahead and order the microfiche from LDS to view the record.
Thanks Katie!! Will let you know if I find anything.
