Anna Webber (after her marriage to Casper Webber, John Dye is next Door, her oldest known son) Her daughter Sarah is already married to Charles Scoggin, and there is a daughter in the house 16-26 that would be Melinda, and daughter Aggie Dye Ramsey is 10 & Under.
No daughters this Age in John's household.
This would also explain why Melinda's Son Jesse Whitson Bridges had Agnes Dye Ramsey (his Aunt) living in his home in 1880!and Why Melinda was buried at Ramsey Cemetery with her sister.
