Re: Cornelius Tyson (1808-1894); descendant
- Hello Linda:
According to my file, the first child of Cornelius Tyson and Lydia
Tucker was Archibald Alfred Tyson (b. 28 Nov 1838, d. 27 Apr 1914).
Archibald married Margaret Ann Alford. I have no further details on
As far as we know, all families with surnames of Tyson, Tison, Tye?, and
Tysor that resided in Pitt County (or adjoining counties) are descendants of
the same John Tyson and Susannika that were first located in deed records in
the Eastern Shores of Virginia. Their son, Mathias and family migrated in
about 1710 to the area that became Pitt County. The family spent several
generations in this same area in North Carolina before beginning to spread
south and west immediately after the Revolutionary War.
We have accumulated much Tyson/Tison/Tysor data. Advise me if I can of
