Mr. Dye was married Jan. 17, 1870, to Cynthia Ann Burd. She was born in Jay Co., Ind., Feb. 25, 1850. Her parents, John A. and Susanna (Clyne) Burd, were originally from Virginia, and settled later in Gallia Co., Ohio. Mr. and Mrs. Dye are the parents of nine children, all of whom are living, namely: Arthur, Ralph, William, Jacob, Amos, Mary, Lee Deborah S., and John.
Mr. Dye's politics are not of the rigid type: if a candidate is honest he supports him; if he is in any way uncertain, he votes the Republican ticket. In religious belief he concurs with the United Bretheren. He has been Road Commissioner eight years, and held the office of Supervisor during the year 1881.
