      JOHN DYE--The lineage of the subject of this review, although of foreign ancestry, bespeaks long and prominent identification with the annals of American history, while representatives of the name have shown that intrinsic loyalty and patriotismwhich has led them to take an active part in the great conflicts through which the republic was established and has been perpetuated.

      John Dye, deceased, who was born near Cold Springs, Campbell county, Kentucky, March 23, 1811, was a worthy representative of one of the old pioneer families of Kentucky, whose ancestors figured prominently in the

      early history of America. On the Dye side he was descended from Laurens Duyts, who was born in Denmark in 1610, emigrated to America in company with Jonas Bronk via Hollandin the ship "Frie of Troy" which arrived at

      New Amsterdam in 1639, borough of Bronx, New York city, taking its name from Jonas Bronk. Laurens Duyts had three children baptized in New Amsterdam, the sons being Jans and Hans. Descendants of Jans took the name of Dies and Deys. Hans marriedMarritze Satyrs, by whomhe had Janus Deay, who was baptized in 1671. Marritze Satyrs died and Hans Laurens, as he was known, married Mrs. Sarah Fountain, widow of Anthony Fountain, by whom he had among other children, John Dey or Dye, born about1690. John Dey or Dye settled in Middlesex county, New Jersey, in 1725, bought land there thatyear and by his will, dated October 1, 1750, and recorded in libra E., folio 496, he names his wife Ann, sons John, David, William, James, Vinson,Joseph and daughters Anne and Catherine. The will of James Dye, dated June 6, 1764, recorded in libra H, folio 427, mentioned his brother Vinson and father John Dye, andnames his wife Sarah and his sons James, Andrew, David, John and Benjamin anddaughters Mary, Rachel, Anne and Sarah. Of the last named children, James, the oldest son, was the father of Isaac

      Dye, the latter being the father of the subject of this review.

      Isaac Dye was born and reared in Middlesex county, New Jersey, where he married Martha Perrine on February 19th, 1794, and where several children were born. In 1805, in company with his family and that of his father-in-law, he emigrated to NewBethel, Ohio, but not long afterward he locatednear what is now Cold Springs, Campbell county, Kentucky, and engaged extensively in farming, being among the pioneer families of Campbell county. He continued farming for a number of years and thenlocated in Newport and became engaged in the coal business, which he continued until his death, which occurred in the'50s, his wife having preceded him by several years. They were the parents of eleven children, none of whom are living at thepresent time.

      John Dye, our subject, was reared on the farm near Cold Springs and prior to his marriage, when quite a young man, spent several years working on flat-boats on the Ohio, Mississippi, Black and White rivers in Arkansas and elsewhere and, in fact,made his start that way. In the meantime he bought a farm near the old homestead, and on May 28, 1840, married Mary Ware and engaged in farming the most of his life.He died at the home of his son, J. Frank Dye, in Highlands, back of Newport, in1885, at the age of seventy-three years, his widow surviving him until 1892 when she died at the age of seventy-three years. They were the parents of six children, three sons and three daughters, of whom two are living at the present time. Ofthese children, James Israel, the eldest son, who was born April 19, 1844, enlisted in the Confederate army under General Humphrey Marshall early in 1863. He was consigned to the Tenth Kentucky Mounted Riflemen, under Captain Ben Bell, was latertransferred to the command of General John S. Williams then to General Giltner and last to General John Morgan on
