I am seeking information on RANSOM S. DYUS who married NANCY YARBROUGH in Talladega Co., Alabama on 15 November, 1857. On the marriage record his surname is spelled "Dyus". I have been unable to locate them in the 1860 census. I did locate a RENSOM DYUS in Mobile Co., Alabama in the 1860 Alabama census but his wife`s name was Martha (possibly a second wife).

In the 1880 Alabama census for Mobile Co., is aSTILES DYESS with wife MARTHA, son JOHN (age 13), son HENRY age 18, and stepson Thomas Foster (age 24).
