Last week I was lucky to be able to attend the National Genealogical Society Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. After the conference on Saturday, two friends and I, drove to the Cincinnati suburb of Wyoming where my second great-grandfather Amos Dye (Cecily Cone, daughter of Charles N. Cone, Jr, son of Hazel Bynum Allen, daughter of Ida Mae Dye, daughter of Amos Dye and his first wife Marinda McCowan) lived in 1900. Unfortunately, the enumerator did not list the exact address of his home on the population schedule wrote over the house leaving some doubt over whether the dwelling number is 211 or 213.
The Dye household lists:
1. Dye Amos Head White, Male, Born: Apr 1847, Age: 53 Married 4 years, born in Ohio, father born in Ohio, mother born in Ohio, attorney-at-law, zero months unemployed, yes can read, write and speak English, owns home, free of mortgage, is a home not a farm.
2. ------- Ida Wife White, Female, Born: Sept 1874, Age; 25, Married 4 years, mother of 2 living children, Born in Ohio, Father born in Germany, Mother born in Germany, no occupation listed, can read, write and speak English.
3. ------- Amos Son White, Male, Born: Jun 1897, Age 3, Single, Born in Ohio, Father born in Ohio, Mother born in Ohio
4.------- Stelman Son White, Male, Born: Apr 1899, Age 1, Single, Born in Ohio, Father born in Ohio, Mother born in Ohio
5. Gravis, Andy, Laborer, White, Male, Born: Jun 1873, Age 27, Married 8 years, Born in Ohio, Father born in Ohio, Mother born in Ohio, Occupation; Laborer, months unemployed 4, can read, write and speak English.
6. --------, Minnie, Servant, White, Female, Born July 1869, Age 30, Married 8 years, born in Ohio, Father born in Ohio, Mother born in Ohio, Occupation, servant, zero months unemployed, can read, write and speak English.
The dwelling seems to be located not far from Burns Avenue however the numbers may have been changes or the building is no longer there.
These are some of the houses in the neighborhood. It will take some additional research to find deeds, period maps and other documentation to narrow down the actual location of the home.
There is more to this story as Amos dies in Phoenix, AZ in 1905.
