This line of the Dyches family begins with:
Josiah and Lucinda came from South Carolina to St. Tammany Paris Louisiana in the early 1800s. It is believed that Joseph died before 1820. Lucinda and most of her children came to Texas before 1830. Their son Joseph Josiah Dyches, and at least one other son fought in the Texas Revolution. One of their duaghters, Jerusha D. Dyches, married David Hutcheson McFadin, who fought in the Battle of San Jacinto. The McFadin home became a historical landmark, and some of the Dyches family were buried on their land.
