I'm Bob Dies from CT, but born and raised in Oklahoma City. My great great grandfather was the Robert Dies (b1825 Smith Cty Tn). I have been to TN but not Dixon Springs. My grandfather (James Edgar Dies b1882 and his father John Dies b1849) both were living around Lafayette TN. When I went to the courthouse to get records I was told it burned down circa 1900 and records were lost, but did find John Dies 1849-1916) grave with his wife Mary Roark just outside TN on what was then the Roark farm.

In any case, the Dixon Springs connection ties to the Dies/Dias/Dice coming out of Lafayette.

Also, Edward Dies in Mt. Juliet TN has quite information on another Robert Dies son Thomas (who was Edwards Great grandfather).

Good luck poking around.
