[genpcfr] Re: Seth Tyson
- Hello Jerry...
My Seth TYSON is the same as yours.... didn't know his first name was
William. (BTW, am I repeating myself?)
My Grandmother, Mary Magdalene WINGATE JACKSON lived with us. Seth's two
wives were her sisters.
The story goes.... that GAunt Lucy O'Neal b.6-23-1890 d.2-28-1913 (buried
in WINGATE graveyard, Ayden) advertised for a husband .... quote "Seth
TYSON answered, came on the train from 'the city', looking slim, dapper, &
and Lucy promptly became infatuated... and they were married".
Will you please send me their daughter's name. I always thought the
children were by the 2nd marriage.
He married GAunt Pearl WINGATE b.1-1-1894 d.12-24-1947, (Lucy's sister),
7--28-1914. She is buried in Hollywood Cemetery, Farmville.
They were the daughters of Joyner Ollen WINGATE b.2-19-1850 d.7-6-1917 and
Nancy Bonner McGLAWHORN b.5-5-1848 D.9-19-1919 both buried in WINGATE
Graveyard on family farm, Ayden. They had 12 children.
I suppose that's enough for now. :)
BAKER; CANNON; COX; JACKSON;
McGLOHORN etc; WINGATE

- If anyone has infornation on Seth H. Tyson (born in Wilson County) Married to
Margaret Jane Newell (originally from Cabarrus County) in 1893, who was a
resident of Greene County. I am wondering if there is a connection to the
Seth Tyson from Pitt. This is a long shot, but please enlighten me if you
know. Also my aunt told me that Margaret (Jane more commonly called) was
buried in the church cemetery of Edwards Chapel Methodist Church. Any help on
this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!!!
The name Seth Tyson is very familiar to me although I can't tell you
anything about him. Maybe you could write to the postmaster at Walstonburg
explaining what you are seeking. He might be able to forward your letter to
a living relative in the area who would be willing to help you. I am almost
sure there are Seth Tyson descendants still in the area.
