(2) Dosia Dye was the wife of John L. Dye.

(NOTE: Believe that "Dosia" was Josephine's nickname.)
1. The 1900 Pulaski Co., KY census states Josaphine was born in July 1849 in Kentucky.
2. Birth Date calculated from the age & death date listed on death certificate -- 30 OCT 1849. In the 1900 census, birth date is shown as July 1849.
3. According to 1870 Pulaski Co, KY census, John & Josephine married about 1867.
4. Children listed in 1870 to 1900 census --- William T., Killis J., Lindzy B., Bettie, Oscar, Matilda, Jessie, Jasper D., & Beatrice. (NOTE: Believe that Bettie is Mary Elizabeth).
5. I first put Josephine in Fishing Creek Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery and on 3-9-11 requested a Tombstone photo. Photographer states: "I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. Individual is definitely not in this very small cemetery. All markers are in excellent condition and are highly readable. "
Believe that she may have been buried in the Old Fishing Creek Cemetery which I understand was moved to Oil Center Cemetery.
