Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 432, Round Grove Township, White County, Indiana

"EDWARD HYDE was born in England April 1, 1839, and is the youngest of three children born to EDWARD and FANNY (SIMPSON) HYDE. The father followed his occupation of dairy farmer in England until 1876, when he came to this country, and died at Bloomington, Indiana, May 4, 1878. EDWARD HYDE, our subject, served an apprenticeship and worked at the machinist's trade from the age of fourteen until twenty-two, and in the spring of 1863 came to this country and settled in Franklin County, Indiana, where he was employed by the month on a farm, and worked in a type foundry until 1874, when he made a three months visit to the old country. In the fall of 1875, he came to this township, and bought eighty acres of his present farm of 170 acres. February 21, 1878, he married RACHEL ASHBY, a native of Tippecanoe County, Indiana, and daughter of JOHN and SARAH (FORDSMAN) ASHBY, who were among the early settlers of the county named. There were two children born to this marriage - PRINCESS VICTORIA and FANNY A. MR. HYDE was a member of the "Ancient Order of Shepherds" in England, and in politics is liberal, but he usually votes with the Democrats."
