'm looking for the parents of Mary Dykes b. 25 Feb 1812 in Kentucky, d. 9 Oct 1889 in Bogard, Carroll, Missouri. She married David Wagaman 10 Sep 1838 in Jessamine Co, KY, and they removed to Missouri sometime between 1850 and 1870, according to census records.
I'm wondering if she descends from the Dykes of Louisa Co, Virginia, in the 1700s - such as John Dykes b. 1716. Some of their descendants ended up in the Kentucky counties near Jessamine, such as Bourbon Co and Clark Co.
Another clue is a Martha Dykes b. 25 Apr 1816 in Jessamine Co, KY, d. 1900 in Carroll Co, MO. She married John R. Wagaman (brother of Mary's husband) 28 Jul 1837 Jessamine Co, KY. They removed to Missouri sometime between 1850 and 1862 according to census and birth records. I'm thinking Martha and Mary may have been sisters because they married brothers.
