Lyn, I have several George Dyess names in my database, but none with the initial J.Most of them are George only so it's possible one of them could be the one you are seeking.What can you tell me about your grandfather's family that might be a clue?Is he a Dyess?If this George was in Bell Co. at that time, chances are good that he is related to the other Dyess families there.
My great grandfather, John Jackson Dyess, lived there from around 1880 until his death in 1903.He was widowed with one son living with him. His brother, George, died in MS, but he had numerous cousins named George.That seems to be a popular name with the Dyess clan, as well as John and Christopher.
I know there is a George Dyess buried in east TX along with his wife, but I don't remember her name to be Julia. I'll have to look it up again and find out who she was, but I do know he is related to the same family.
