*Not certain of connection to Michael Dykes as father of Mollie Dykes who married Thomas Driskell but it is a very good probability. He is the closest Dykes household in proximity to the Hitches, Driskells, Denstons, Haymans and other families that intermingled in marriage and in the correct locale. Plus Michael Dykes, in 1830, has many male and female children in his household of all the correct ages, including such for Mollie Dykes. Michael Dykes married twice - once in 1810 (Nancy Denston) and again in 1820 (Susanna Hayman) and so built a large family around two wives over those years of the Federal Period. His first wife Nancy died sometime in the 1811-1820 timeframe and he himself died sometime in the 1830s. There is little doubt that Michael was son of Daniel Dykes who lived next to each other in 1810.

In the 1810 Census, Michael Dykes' household is next to Daniel Dykes and Benjamin Hitch and consists of 00100-00100 suggesting he is of age 16-26 at the time. In the 1830 Census, Michael Dykes has household 2230001000000-210202001000 in Worcester Co. suggesting his is age 40-50 and he has a mother in his household (or mother-in-law) as age 70-80. He is living near Samuel Hitch and Benjamin Vincent.
