I am trying to find out what happened to George W. and Margaret Catherine (Davis) Dyke, of Gallia County and Pike County, Ohio, after 1880.
They were married in 1866 in Gallia County (George spent his childhood in Morgan, Gallia, and Margaret in various parts of Gallia, and in 1870 and 1880 the couple is in Jackson, Pike, Ohio (nearby), with two children who were likely relatives (Alice J. Strausbaugh, b. abt 1867, and Mabel Detillion, b. abt 1872) and apparently no children of their own.
George's parents were David Dyke (b. abt 1810 in Virginia, probably) and Delilah (b. abt 1811, perhaps in Ohio).Their other children were William H. (b. abt 1838), Sarah (b. abt 1840), Letitia Jane (Dyke) Irvin (b. abt 1845 and m. to Perry Irvin in 1865), Susannah Charlotte (Dyke) Russell (b. abt 1849 and m. to Samuel Palmer in 1866), and Laura (b. abt 1859).They also may have had a child named Nancy Dyke, b. abt 1840, who married a Hutchison.
George's brother William married Sarah D. Butcher and had several children, including Myrtle Ellen (b. Jul 1866, m. Levi Russell in 1882), Ida (b. Mar 1869, m. Samuel Russell in 1885), David (b. 2 Jan 1870, m. Ollie abt 1892), Reuben (b. 27 Jun 1871, m. Mattie), Jacob (b. abt 1872), Joseph (b. 15 May 1874, m. Sarah Pipe), and Nancy (b. abt 1877).
As far as I know, the Dykes stayed in Ohio, but some other relatives (including Davises, Detillions, and McClains) went to Lincoln County and other places in Washington, so that is a possibility (as is most anything).
