Kenneth Dye Jr. was born on October 26, 1804 in Mason Co., KY. His father died in 1817 when he was age 12. Kenneth is listed as an heir in his father's will that was dated March 15, 1817. In the will Kenneth Sr. states "It is my desire that my sons Hiram & Kenneth be put to trades, such as they may choose, & I do here by appoint my friend Jonathan Ross executor to this my last will & testament, also guardians to all my children under age." I'm not sure where Kenneth lived after his father's death, but at some time between 1817 to 1827 he moved from Kentucky to Indiana. Kenneth married Juliana Vantrease on December 29, 1827 in Daviess Co., Indiana and they had at least 7 children. Juliana was the daughter of Emanuel Vantrease, and she was first cousin to James Frederick VanTrease. Kenneth died on August 1849 in Washington, Daviess Co., IN. Juliana is listed with the children on the 1850 census of Washington, Daviess Co., IN. Children of Kenneth Dye & Juliana Vantrease are Hiram (1828), William (1832), Martha (1837), Kenneth (1839), Samuel (1841), Ophelia (1842) & Matilda (1848).
