I have Dicey Rider married to Thomas Jefferson Bates, and I'd really like
to know the names of her parents. Do you have this Rider information?

Hi! Stacey here...
on ancestry.com in the 1870 census it shows Thomas Bates and Dicy .... and
Thomas is 63 and Dicy 50 there oldest child in the home is a daughter Rachel
she is 24 and lists her birth as Georgia. So you may want to look in Georgia
for the parents of Dicy, just a thought. Margaret there next daughter lists
her birth place as Arkansas and she is 18, so probably sometime between
Rachel and Margarets birth the parents moved to Arkansas. Also Thomas and Dicy
list there birth place as South carolina on this census so maybe they meet and
married there before moving to Georgia, another possiblity. Good Luck! Stacey
