The mines failed and some of the family went to Youngstown, Mahoning County, Ohio in 1875 and on to Denver, Colorado, Butte and Goldcreek, Montana, Washington and California. *********************************** Patrick Dee died February 13, 1921. He was age 93 and 11 months. His son, Thomas, was living with him for the last two years of his life. His home was on North Green Street, Brownsburg, Indiana. Hanna Norah/Hanora preceded him in death. Patrick had a brother named John that fought in the Civil War. I don't know if John ever married. For ten years, John Dee lived with his nephew, John Dee and his wife Frances Mahoney (I believe in Los Angeles and San Diego, CA). He died in San Diego. DEE MISCELLANEOUS Martin and Michael Dee, who also lived in Central Mines during the same time as Patrick, might also have been his brothers. Martin was married to a Mary Saunder/Landers in Eagle River, Michigan. There was also a William Dee married to an Ann Daily in Eagle River. I have a death certificate of a Martin D. Allen who was the son of James M. Allen and Hannah Dee. He died at 1229 G. street in Sacramento on 29, May 1937. He was born in Houghton County Michigan in February 1864. He was married to Susan M. He is buried in the Masonic Lawn cemetery in Sacramento. His mother was probably the sister of Patrick Dee.
