There are 2 Dingus marriages on the Dickenson Co Marriage Register (1880-1900):
E.P. DINGUS, 36 Widower, b. Scott Co, Va, son of Henry & N. Dingus; m. N.E. Hensley, 15, Single, b. Wise Co, Va, dau of Mathias & M. Hensley, Aug 1, 1895.
W.D. HALE, 19, S, b. Va, son of A.W. & N.A. Hale; m. MARY L. DINGUS, 19, b. Va, dau of E.P. & Alva DINGUS, May 2, 1899.

The 1880 Scott Co, Va census lists Patrick, age 20, Single, in the household of his mother, Nancy, age 45, Wd, along with siblings Henry 15; John 14; Stephen 12; & Charles 9. An ALVA Powers, 17, niece, bc 1863 is listed in the household of a John Dingus, age 79; these two families are living in the same Dist of Scott Co.

The 1900 Dickenson Co, Va, Kenady, Dist 14, census lists E. Patrick Dingus b. Jun 1859, age 40, married 4 years; his wife listed as Nancy E., b. Aug 1880; mother of 2 children, 2 living in 1900 (See above marriage record). Other children listed must have been the children of his first wife, Alva Powers. They are listed as Lakey (?), b. Oct 1881 (this must be Mary L. that m. W.D. Hale); Wm. R. Aug 1884; John W. Jun 1887; Luther Feb 1890; Edwin May 1892. The two children of Nancy Hensley were Corbett May 1896 and Albert Jul 1899.

1910 Dickenson Co (Ervinton Dist 14) lists Patrick Dingus, age 57, 2d marriage, married 15 years; wife listed as MYRA, age 30, 1st marriage, m. 15 years; mother of 5 children, 5 living in 1900. (Am wondering if Nancy Hensley's name was miscopied as Nancy/Mrya somewhere along the way? Their dates of birth are the same; seems they were married the same # of years & this marriage is listed as his second one; the 5 living children could be an error on the census.) There are 5 children listed but the oldest is Edwin, 18 (bc 1892); Corbit 14; Albert 10; Nora 5; Charley 3. Also living in this household is Henry Dingus, age 20, (same person as Luther?), 1st marriage, married 1 year; wife Bessie, 18, 1st marriage, married 1 year.

Didn't have any luck locating Emory Patrick in 1920. Hope the above info will be of some assistance to you.
