My Tyson Genealogy - Part 9

This whole report today is focused on one person, my Great-great-great-great grandfather Job Tyson. He had an interesting life. As a young man or teenager he played some sort prank on the occupying British soldiers, which, at times of war, things like that was punishable by death. For some unknown reason General Cornwallis pardoned him - which apparently caused some family members and neighbors think he went over to the other side to become a Troy. Which, he evidently had to get written statements to prove otherwise.

34. JOB6 TYSON (JOHN5, THOMAS4, MATHIAS3, JOHN2, UNKNOWN1) was born Bef. 1760 in , Pitt, NC, and died 1803 in Hancock or Oglethorpe, Ga. He married DELITHA STANTON, daughter of JAMES STANTON and ELIZABETH THWEATT. She was born Bef. 1770, and died Bef. 1803.

Notes for JOB TYSON:
Branded a Tory? Frederick TYSON (brother) signed a petition for Job TYSON, classified as Tory.

North Carolina Colonial Records, Vol 16, pages 580-81 shows the following:
Petition from Pitt Co., NC, Martainborough, 1 Apr 1782. For pardon for Mr. Job TYSON (who broke his parole from Lord Cornwallis and went to South Carolina). Signed by numerous citizens including Aaron TISON, Frederick TISON, Cornelius TISON, William TISON, Jonathan TISON, and many others.

Leonardo Andrea File, page 6, #32:
A petition signed 1st day of April 1782 re Job TYSON, now a resident in the State of South Carolina and who desired to return to his home in Pitt Co., NC.

"Job TYSON as a very young man had taken a brave part in the Revolution with the American forces, etc., etc. When Charleston was captured, Job TYSON took a parole from Lord Cornwallis and because of that, he was now classified as a Tory"

The petition was to allow Job TYSON to visit his family in Pitt Co., NC and to take from his name the stigma of being a Tory.

"Petition from Pitt County.
To His Excellency Thos. Burke, Exqr., Governor of the State of North Carolina, and the Honourable Gentlemen of the Council:
The Petition of the Inhabitants of Pitt County Humbly Sheweth: That Mr. Job Tyson having taken a Parole from Lord Cornwallis as he was passing through this State and hath not acted an Inimical part against it, so far as to take up Arms, but he being young and apprehensive, that his conduct was sufficient to bring him to severe punishment, left this State and went into South Carolina so that he being ignorant of the Several Proclamations offered to Delinquents could not Avail himself thereof.

And as the sd. Job Tyson had before taken an active part in Defence of this State and freely Turned out as a Volunteer in Defence of this State when the British first Reduced Charlestown and a person intirely young, and we doubting not but if he Should be received again as a Citizen but that he will become a useful member of Society. We, the Subscribers, do hereby recommend & Humbly Petition to your Excellency & Honour to Pardon him, not Doubting in the least but that his Conduct hereafter will prove Sufficient to merit the approbation of all good Citizens."

"Permitted Job Tison to repair to any Continental Officer to enlist for twelve months or otherwise to furnish a substitute.

Major McCauley will be so good as to send a messenger for the County Commissioner unless he can be assured that he will be in very early in the morning.

If the Major can appoint a discreet man to borrow some provisions for the troops I will take care that the Commissary General shall replace it in kind received of an equal quantity." End for that day.

I need to insert this someplace: When I first started researching the TYSON family, I had information that Delitha's maiden name was HAMBY.

The first child of Job and Delitha was named Delitha Winston Tyson; thus, indicating Delitha's marriage to Winston occurred prior to her marriage to Job Tyson. The fact that her former husband's surname was combined in the child's name might indicate Delitha was carrying the child when James Winston died or that the child was adopted after the second marriage took place
