Hello Diane!!

So great to hear from you and know that you're still out there! It has been a very long time.

Thank you, and yes, those names are incorrect on the wives of Michael and Timothy. Michael married Eliza Dykes and Timothy married Sarah Amanda Dykes. I tend to get them turned around when I don't have them in front of me.

I have not found the parents of Timothy yet either. I can't even give a comfortable assumption at this time, but I am still working on all of them. I do know that the Hawkins/Greene/Washington/Sullivan Co. Lights were all family, along with the MO Lights. What type of relationship is the big question.

Since Timothy was with the Muncy/Munsey family in Washington Co. TN, he was likeley within a stones throw of his own family considering the county lines around Beech Creek.

The Dykes, Morelocks, Baileys, Mullins, and a few other marital names were all neighbors. There was a movement off Beech Creek (Hawkins Co) to MO and a number of these folks made that move. Some together, some later. The only thing I can say with certainty is, they were at least cousins!!

Hopefully, more later!

Thanks again!!
Margaret
