Surname Saturday: Dyer

The Surname DYER is early medieval English in origin. It has been written as Dyer, Dwyer and Dyre. The Dyer surname follows the occupation tradition of surnames; being for someone who changes the color(dyes) of something, usually cloth.

The Dyer's in my family include: Adeline Dyer. She was born March, 1838 in New York, United States. She married Samuel Stillman Glover (Jr.) on 2 Aug 1857 in Lenawee County, Michigan.

Adeline is the daughter of William G. Dyer and Mary Ann Swallow. William G. Dyer was born 8 February 1814 in New York, USA. He died 8 May 1875 in Adrian, Lenawee, Michigan. William can be found in the 1850 U.S. Federal Census living in Cazenovia, Madison, New York.

William is another brick wall in my research. I haven't found Williams parents or where he was born in New York.
