155. JOHN GERDINE8 TYSON (EUGENE HARGRAVES JOB7, JOB6, JOHN5, THOMAS4, MATHIAS3, JOHN2, UNKNOWN1) was born 03 Nov 1833, and died 18 Apr 1909 in Anniston, , Al. He married (1) ANN FOWLER. She was born Abt. 1833, and died Unknown. He married (2) SARAH CLEMENTINE SITTON. She was born 13 Apr 1846, and died 13 Mar 1919.

His first wife died at childbirth.

The family lived together many years. Census has John G & Sarah in Cleburn
Co 1870. Haven't run other records yet. Most of the sons were unmarried
except Ben, Erwin and James. They lived in Cross Plains about 1895 and on
into Anniston by 1899 or so. Lived at several addresses.

When Mamie was married they moved into a larger house and her letters tell of
the nice room they have with her flowers and about "mother's good cook".
Father took Pearl with him for many years before she came home. Pearl was
abandoned with Margarete and Alma got them home (which at this time was in
Birmingham). They were all still living together. My father Talmage was not
happy with step mom. Pearl brought him to live with them.

Over the years Talmage lived with George and Jesse in a tent for awhile.
George helped Talmage build our first house. He and Jesse lived with
Margarete till they died. When she married Robert S. Wessinger (blind from
14 years old) they moved back to Anniston where Bob had lived..the son of a
local Methodist pastor.

They all preserved many items, especially ones from my father's mother Josie.
My brother and I have many items she made or beautiful statues and vases
that were hers. Even despite the fires that burned many items.

I was having some good times I could quit when I wanted to but pa though (t) riding in a run for two or three miles up hill and down hill cross the river and back the same way after an old cow with the dogs tiede on to her heals was to much for me it would have been in Mo. I have not hearded since he wrote to amount to any thing.

Dear Sir: Replying to your ad of recent date concerning Jobe Tyson who died in Sparta, Ga. in 1803-the Inventory of his estate is on file in Hancock Co, but his will is not be found in office of Ordinary. I presume you want to get the ancestry of this Job Tyson, and perhaps I can help you if you have some additional data concerning him. I am trying to connect another family of Tysons with the (two words) in N.C. and would like to compare notes with you. My phone no. is Ivy 2642J-and I am

Mr. Jesse B. Tyson:
Dear Sir;
In reply to your letter of January third will give you such information as you desire.
Aaron K. Tyson of Enon Valley Pa. Who died May 20th 1920 was my great Uncle. Before his death he called us and gave an old family bible which we tried to get for many years before. He then told us of his father who was Joseph Tyson who was a brother of James Tyson of Austrailia who also had relatives in the South. We did not learn the names of the other brothers of Joseph and James.

I learned of your connection of this affair through the Americanand Austrailian government. I am enclosing a copy of a New Castle paper which you can read. This clipping is of Jan fifth nineteen twenty two. By this you can see things he has done. Which we have for years known through him sending word back to the States to Aaron Tyson with a sailor. He told this man to tell my Uncle Aaron to communicate with him as he had accumalated great wealth.

If you will tell me if you know of Joseph or Aaron Tyson or who your ancestors were I will try and tell you more about the Tyson whom I know. We had a relative in the south killed by one of his slaves. A great many years ago. Will you kindly return this clipping and I will copy some names from this family bible.
Your Truly Mrs. Wm Turner
