This helps pin down your search. I looked in the index of a book compiled by
one of our group members, Roger Kammerer (Tyson-May Genealogy of Pitt
County, about 800 pages), and did not see an Isaac Tyson. Roger's book does
not attempt to trace every line, but he may have other notes in his
I'm copying this message to 2 mail lists in hopes that some of our Tyson
experts (we have a few!) will see something familiar in your query! Those
Georgia links are often tough to find.

We've been able to trace back to Isaac Tison, born in 1760. We have
information that he was a revolutionary soldier and
served in the N. C. militia from the Wilmington district. Several years
after the war he moved with his family to Wilkes
County, Ga. I've gotten some info from a book about a Mathias Tyson and
that he lots of grandsons in Pitt County. We
think Isaac moved to Ga. from Pitt County, N.C. Thanks for responding and I
appreciate any help.
