“Aunt” Caroline Dye was known thoughout the region as a seer.  At the time of her death in 1918, Dye’s estate included numerous farms and exceeded $100,000.  Memphis musician W.C. Handy sings about her in his 1923 “Sundown Blues”: “I’m going to Newport, Arkansas, I’m going there to see Aunt Car’line Dye, Why she’s a reader and I need her . . . She reads your fortune and the cards don’t lie.”
