I am looking for information on Mary Jones Dye's parents. I am related to John M. Dye's son Isaac C. Dye who married Mary Jane Jones on September 17, 1835 in Miami County, Ohio. I am also related to their daughter Ellen who married John Landis on March 8, 1857 in Miami County. Mary was born in Miami County around 1815. Mary was Mary Dye in the 1850 and the 1860 Censuses in Miami County. Mary's mother Mary Jones was with her in 1850 and 1860 and both censuses said she was from Pennsylvania. Mary's parents might be Jones who lived in Miami County who were Brethren. The Jones might be Brethren since the Dyes and the Landis were also Brethren/German Baptist. Mary might be related to Abner Jones who is mentioned in Isaac's 1838 Miami County deed. These Jones might have lived in Staunton, Elizabeth, and Lost Creek townships in Northern Miami County.
