Biography* Lynette Ellis Metz wrote on 27 Sep 2005:
     "I can give you more information about Jeanette Llewellyn Dyes who was married to Thomas T. Culpepper 4 April 1840. They were my great-great aunt & uncle. Her parents were Nathaniel Dyes (b abt 1755) & Mary Ann Copeland Clark. They were probably also married in Gilmerton, Portsmouth, VA since Nathaniel's parents: Peter Dyes & Margaret Manning Llewellyn were on 27 Aug 1754.
     "There may be more connections because Margaret was also married & widowed by Edward Llewellyn. The Edward Llewellyn on your website was married to Margaret Ballentine. Someone else left a will and the names '---- Manning & ----Ballentine' were right next to each other...I just don't remember the names right off.
     "BTW, Jeanette Dyes Culpepper's brother-in-law, my great-great-grandfather, was a lightkeeper at Old Cape Henry. His son-in-law, Jonathan Martin, my great-grandfather was the lightkeeper at both Lamberts Point & Craney Island Lights which were both on the Elizabeth River. Therefore, Jonathan Martin would have been Jeanette's niece's husband."1
