Transcribed by Phyllis Miller Fleming

Notes from Judy Tillison Wright:
          I read with interest the Calvin Benjamin guardianship, with guardian William Dyer.  These are not my lines, but I thought that someone might be helped by the following information.  William Dyer , I think, moved back to Grainger Co. TN in the 1840's.  His sister, Winnie Dyer, was widow of  Marvel M. Wickliff who died in Shelby Co IN before Sept. 1835, and Winnie moved back to Grainger Co. TN with her brother, William Dyer.  I think some of the Dyers eventually moved to Missouri.
          This Marvel M. Wickliff, (probably born about 1800), seems to be the brother of my ancestor,  Thomas Wickliff  (born 1815), who married  Sarah Whitehead.  Thomas and Marvel Wickliff had a brother,  William Wickliff  (born 1802), who had a son also named Marvel M. Wickliff.  The younger Marvel Wickliff was born in 1829 and married a Susan.)
          Winny Dyer Wickliff (widow of  Marvel bc 1800) was probably born 1796 in Pittsylvania Co. VA.  Winny remarried  James Sellers  in Grainger Co. TN in 1842.  One of Winny & William Dyer's sisters was born 1784 in Caroline Co. VA.  Not knowing why William Dyer was a guardian for Calvin Benjamin, I don't know if there was a family relationship there, or if anyone is looking for "lost" members somewhere, but if so, Grainger Co. TN or MO might be places to look.
          The Bloods, Coles, and other names in the estate sound like names that came to Shelby Co. from VT. and NY, so I don't know why William Dyer would have been the guardian, unless he was married to a family member, etc.  Anyone know?  Also, does anyone know what the middle initial of Marvel M. stands for?
