ELIJAH C. DYCUS, M. D., now among the pioneers of Marshall County, is a son of John and Nancy (Isaacs) Dycus. Both parents were natives of Kentucky, and both were born in 1797. They removed from Edmonson County to the Purchase in 1830, and that year settled near the village of Briensburg, Marshall County. John Dycus was a farmer and civil officer, and died when about forty-seven years old. His widow survived him many years, and died in 1877. Dr. E. C. Dycus is the third child of a family of eleven born to these parents. He was born in 1820 in Hart County, Ky., and was therefore but ten years old when the father came to Marshall County, then Calloway. In early manhood he decided on the profession of medicine, and pursued his medical studies under Dr. Nuckalls, an early and prominent physician of Wadesboro. Dr. Dycus began his practice in 1846, since which time he has devoted his time to that useful, though laborious profession. He is a member of the Marshall County Medical Association, and the Southwestern Medical Association of Kentucky, and also of the A. F. & A. M. Dr. Dycus was married in New Providence, Tenn., in 1849, to Miss Atlanta G. Duncan, daughter of James W. and Ann Duncan, of Virginia. They have a family of seven children, viz.: Francesca J., John W., Ella C., Ann Eliza, Emmett C., Emma G. and Mary A. Dycus. The family are honored members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South.
