Additional Dykes Family Lineages

 

 Dykes Family begins with Martin Dykes b abt 1790.  His mother was
Martha Dykes and I do not know his father's name.  He was married to
Mary Jane Sanders and thier children were Jacob Dykes, Sanders Dykes
and John Dykes.  I am descended through Sanders Dykes and his 1st wife
Almira Walker and thier son, Martin Van Buren Dykes who married Sarah
Ann Tate, and their son, Albert H. Dykes, who married Rosa Lee Patton,
who was the daughter of John Henry Patton and Elizabeth Boyd. The
daughter of Albert Dykes and Rosa Lee Patton is Temmie K. Dykes and
she married Homer Grady Higgins. They are my grandparents. It is said
that Martin Dykes was a Nephew of Isham Dykes who was a son of William
Dykes.
Martin Dykes and his family lived in Grundy County, Tennessee.
Sanders Dykes was living in Marion County, Tennessee.  Martin Van
Buren Dykes and Sarah Ann moved to Texas sometimes after 1880.

The earliest of my Dykes family are in Scotland.  Most of them are
born around Galston, Ayr.  My maiden name is Dykes and I live in New
Zealand.  My great great great grandparents are Alexander Dykes (1772)
and Marion Borland (1767).  I am trying to get back further than this.

My great great grandparents are Robert Dykes (1809) and Isabella
Watson (1812)

My great grandparents are Alexander Dykes (1864)and Margaret Brown (1837)

If anyone can link up with me I would be interested in sharing info.
