Tabitha Trice, who married Edward Dycus is the daughter of Edward Trice Sr. and Nancy Meachum. Tabitha was one of 15 children of Edward - first wife 7 children and second wife (Nancy) had 8. Edward and Nancy were married in Orange Co NC on Jul/28/1785. I do not have an exact date for Tabitha's birth (ca 1795?) but do for several of her brothers and sisters. Edward Trice and Nancy Meachum Trice moved from NC in 1807 and settled on land purchased near the junction of the Red River and the Cumberland just north of Clarksville. Almost all of the family moved however the eldest brother Henry stayed in NC. Tabitha's brother Lewis Trice born Dec 5 1791 is my gg-grandfather. I have much more information on the Edward Trice line and the descendents, which I will be glad to share.
Descendants of Edward Trice, Sr are:
