I could not find a post mentioning multiple Thomas Dias/Dyas/Dicus men.
Somerset Co., Maryland was just across the Potomack River/Chesapeake Bay from Westmoreland Co., Virginia.Many families went back and forth from what I've read.
Most wills didn't survive, frustrating but not surprising.I hadn't stumbled on Michall before.Just Jane and I debate whether she was a second wife or the wife of a son named Thomas Junior.That would be my only evidence for the existance of a junior and I really think it more likely she is a second wife.
"William of Thomas Dias" got cattle marks registered in Somerset County, MD.I haven't seen the original--just a transcript.My only evidence for his existance.
I'm shopping for ancestors for a Henry Dias/Dyess who died in the 1730's in Bath/Beaufort Co., NC leaving five children and a wife.He was born before 1710.This is a side line but I wam really trying to trace William Beasley.Thomas Dyas and William Beasley were clearly neighbors in Westmoreland County, as cited in more than one deed.
I had Thomas Dyas as born 1616-1626 so we agree there.
