Some Descendants of Nicholas Tyner of Isle of Wight, Virginia, PT. 1


by Jane A. Leavell
If you copy more than DOB/death dates, please post a link to http://littlecalamity.tripod.com/Leavell.html and my name. DON'T STEAL MY WORK--let me leave a legacy, okay?

Because books have already been written on this family, I haven't tried to trace all lines as diligently as I might. The supreme source of info right now is Dennis Ward, as well as Judith Lamb Rittenhouse, Jane Ikemura, Sharon, and all the other diligent members of the Tyner mailing list, accessible through ROOTSWEB. I highly recommend that you join this group if you're interested in the family. Also, as I work, I'm trying to substitute "at" for the @ symbol, to prevent spammers' searchbots from collecting the email addies of people who've helped me in this research. Finally, in searching, be aware that the name is variously spelled as Tynes, Tinor, Tiner, or Tyner.

Generation No. 1

1. NICHOLAS TYNER was born Abt. 1637, and died Abt. 1708 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He married MARGARET OLIVER.

Notes for NICHOLAS TYNER:
Sources: the number one source for all Tyner history is Dennis Ward, who oversees the Tyner mailing list at Rootsweb.com. Another major source is Don Mitchell. Check out the mailing list and the Rootsweb message boards for many other vastly important Tyner researchers who located most of the data in this database.

On Dec 9, 1693 Nicholas Tiner served on the Grand Jury of the Isle of Wight County, Virginia.
Listed in 1704 Rent Roll of Virginia for 300 acres in Isle of Wight.
Will dated 28 Sept. 1708 Virginia Mag. of History ,Vol. 29 P. 342.

POSSIBLE ORIGINS:
Joseph Tyner of WARWICKSHIRE, ENGLAND sentenced to transport 1766.
SIMON TINER apprenticed 1663 BRISTOL, ENGLAND for 4 years nevis to Steven Watts.
JOHN TWYNER of MDDLESEX, ENGLAND sentenced to transport Jan. 1776 aboard the Scarsdale .

A commercial search claims that Tyner/Tiner means: "One who comes from Tinnen, Germany."

Matheson’s Special Report on Surnames of Ireland shows surnames with five or more entries in the birth indexes of 1890, and the main counties in which they were found. The birth rate was 1:44 at that time so you can estimate the number of people of the name at that time. The great value of Matheson's report is that it indicates how common a particular surname is countrywide, provincially and also in a county. The distribution of surnames has not changed significantly since the publication of the Report--so it is reasonable to presume the same pattern prior to 1890. TYNER is listed 6 times; 4 in Leinster and 2 in Munster provinces.

However, there were Tiners and Tyners in England in the 1690's and later; some say the name was applied to families who lived along the river Tyne. A book on English surnames says it means "one who tined or mended hedges." Another surname book claims it comes from the Dutch "Tuyn" and means twine-maker. A book on family names of he Irish /English /Scottish says it means "ten," hence, an agent, or person of ten years experience.

Hi Mary,
Try Tinner, Tinnen which is the claimed origin according to one of the commercial coat of arms outfits and from a gazateer notation. I think the Tiner/Tyner we know is several spellings removed from the original. What do you think? I plunked Tinnen into the Alta Vista search engine and got a lot of German hits, both people and the places.

In the"Court Orders, Isle of Wight Co., Va., 9 Dec. 1693" we find among others,
"Nicho. Tiner,.... being summoned on the grand jury and not appearing, sheriff is ordered to summon them to next court to show cause (if any) for their default."

"Nicholas Tyner, to William Williams, 300 acres northwest of ye branch, where Sarah Sowells alias Thomas now lives; April 1, 1707, For 500 lbs. of tobacco."

Nicholas left a will dated 28 September 1708, which was probated 9 February 1708-9. He was listed in the Isle of Wight Will and Deed Book 2, page 489.

I am submitting the following records for distribution. I think they will complement the "Loose Papers" from Jeanne Spain. Bertie Countie is the parent county of Northhampton Co. I think it is significant that William Tyner (son of Nicholas ??) died in Bertie Co. in 1760 and his only son William was in Granville Dist. SC shortly after. Is this son William the one who died in 1780 in Northhampton Co? I would appreciate any feedback.--James Russell

3. SARAH TYNER (NICHOLAS) was born Abt. 1668, and died Aft. 1710 in Chowan Precinct, Albemarle County, North Carolina. She never married JOHN HARRIS, son of THOMAS HARRIS and ANN MARTIN, but had children by him. He was born 1665 in Isle of Wight, Chowan County, VIrginia, and died Aft. December 16, 1711 in Chowan Pct., Albemarle County, North Carolina, with a legal wife, Mildred, surviving him. By Mildred he allegedly had Mary Ann Harris, abt. 1702, and Elizabeth Harris, abt. 1709, but they aren't in his will so if they ever existed, they must have died young. DNA tests show that DEMPSEY TYNER is a descendant of this couple (as is EDMUND L. TINER, b. 1817 TN, married LUCINDA BLEVINS), but we don't know exactly how. Contact me for info on Edmund Tiner's descendants, who aren't posted here.

Notes for SARAH TYNER:
ThatBeBob at AOL.COM 9/7/99
.....Tying Richard back to John Harris and Sarah Tyner is one of my main Tyner projects. Lacking anything but circumstantial evidence, I "feel" certain that Richard Tyner of Elbert was the same man as Richard of Johnston and the son of John Harris Tyner, who was the natural son of Sarah Tyner and John Harris. People have gone through all kinds of mental calisthenics to legitimize that relationship and, to me, none of them fly. When I was first beginning my Tyner research, I came upon the will of John Harris, and after reading it I read it again, and thought "Wow, this woman was his mistress." Nothing I've seen since has made me change my opinion.

Theory # 1. SARAH TYNER WAS JOHN HARRIS'S DAUGHTER:
.....I don't see how anyone who read John's will ever drew this conclusion. If this is the case, why didn't he say so? John Harris, in naming Sarah executor, also very clearly designates her "trusty friend." If that's not enough, I know that John Harris Tyner was of age by 1725. John Harris was born ca 1665. If he had a daughter born ca 1785, it's possible that she had a child born by 1705, but a bare 20 years between generations is somewhat of a tight fit.

Theory #2 SARAH TYNER WAS A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW OF NICHOLAS TYNER
.....This is the theory of Lewis A. Wood, 215 Le Grand Blvd., Greenville, S.C. 29607, and I will quote it:
....."A lot of "TYNER" researchers, including Max TYNER, one of the original TYNER historians, have stated that NICHOLAS TYNER (Isle of Wight, VA) was the father of SARAH TYNER, mistress of JOHN HARRIS and that JOHN HARRIS was the father of JOHN & WILLIAM TYNER, sons of SARAH TYNER, his mistress. I (LAW) have never seen any proof that SARAH TYNER, mistress of JOHN HARRIS, was the daughter of NICHOLAS TYNER I (Isle of Wight) NICHOLAS TYNER I did have a daughter, SARAH TYNER, that he left 1 Cow & 1 Calf to if she would have it.
.....There is another possibility that no one seems to have taken into account. Consider this - NICHOLAS TYNER (Isle of Wight) had a son who was already dead when he made his Will in 1708. This dead son's wife, SARAH, had 3 small children by him, JOHN. WILLIAM, & SARAH TYNER. But, at the time of his Will in 1708, this daughter-in-law, SARAH, wife of his dead son, was living with JOHN HARRIS as his "Mistress" JOHN HARRIS had a wife, Mildren, living with him at the same time. So, NICHOLAS TYNER I, so disapproved of her behavior, that he left her out of his Will completely. This would account for SARAH'S children using the surname, "TYNER". If JOHN HARRIS had actually been their father, I feel sure he would have wonted them to use his surname "HARRIS". SARAH TYNER'S, (mistress of JOHN HARRIS), son JOHN TYNER, later, used the name JOHN HARRIS TYNER and many more of her descendants also used "HARRIS" in their name, but, not as their surname - that was always "TYNER"."
.....My only real comment about this, is that, it makes even less sense for John Harris to leave the bulk of his estate to the children of his mistress by another man, and why is one of them named Harris?

Theory #3 SARAH TYNER WAS THE MISTRESS OF JOHN HARRIS AND BORE HIM THREE CHILDREN:
This is still the winner, as far as I'm concerned.
1. I know of no evidence of any Sarah Tyner in that time and vicinity other than the daughter of Nicholas (d. 1709.)

2. She named one of her sons John Harris Tyner and the name Harris was given to children for generations hence.

3. In his will, Nicholas Tyner rather clearly stated his displeasure with Sarah. "I give unto my daughter Sarah one cow & a calf, if shee will have it and no more."
.....This has been a method of expressing parental displeasure from the grave since time immemorial and we still see it in movies and TV every day (i. e. "Rain Man".) It would be unusual for her to be cut out of her share of the household goods if he were not displeased with her and the phrase "all ye rest of my children Excepting my daughter Sarah, and my will is that Shee shall have no more than is already given her." is to me a sure sign that he didn't like a marriage she had entered or something she was doing and being someone's mistress seems like a logical reason.

4. Edward Padgett and Mary Tyner witnessed the will of John Harris. Now these people are very unlikely to be anyone else but Nicholas's daughter Mary and Nicholas's son-in-law Edward Padgett who married Margaret Tyner, providing another link back to Nicholas. Again, from Nicholas's will
"I give unto Margaret two cows & calves & ye plantation where she now lives in Rockahock Neck, being ye remainder of ye land before given to her & her heirs." making her and her husband Edward neighbors to John Harris.
.....Let me know what you think.

.....I have read various speculations about Sarah Tyner, dau of Nicholas and her relationship to John Harris.
.....Has anyone entertained the thought that I have, that she might have been part American Indian?
.....We find her in 1708 living about 300 miles inland on the Catawba River on what would later be the North Carolina and South Carolina border, although at that time it was all called just Carolina. As far as I know, at this time, this was Indian country, an area where white traders would journey to trade with the Indians but not yet settled by white men.
.....Also, Sarah was apparently cohabitating with John Harris who had a wife in the eastern part of the state in the Chowan Precinct, which he gave as his home when he made out his will. It is not unheard of for a man to have a mistress. It would improve their relations with the Indians if a trader took an Indian or mixed-breed as a wife or mistress. In some cases, the Indians required the traders to take an Indian wife in order to do business with them.
.....The mixed-breeds were usually somewhat of outcasts by both the whites and the Indians. If their skin was light enough they would pass as whites, but more often they were considered Indians.
.....Sarah's birth date is critical to this theory. We know that Nicholas came to America in 1679 with no wife and 5 children. Was Sarah one of the five? I have seen 6 or 7 children listed. Does anyone have proof of when Sarah was born? I have seen several different dates for her birth , some of which are after Nicholas arrived here. If she were born after his arrival, then it would be not only possible that Nicholas had Sarah by an Indian woman but it would be most likely as there were very few white women here at that time.
.....Margaret Oliver is given as Nicholas wife's name. Was this his wife in England? That is certainly an Anglo name, however, Indians took Anglo names very often, especially the women who married white men. I have even seen men who had been married to women in England who took Indians wives who took the name of the English wife.
.....I have seen Oliver given as Nicholas' middle name, which seems curious to me. How many people at that time in history used middle names? And what are the odds that he would have the same middle name as his wife's surname by chance. This might be explained if he was married to an Indian woman. The Indians in that area were matriarchal and their name was the dominant one. Although I have not before seen the husband taking the wife's Indian name. Nevertheless, it was the Indian mother's surname that was given to the children, not the father's. This would explain why Sarah and John Harris's children were named Tyner instead of Harris.
.....Also, consider the many connections Sarah's descendents had with Indians - marrying and living with them. And also , her father's slighting her in his will. It was not uncommon for white men to totally disinherit their mixed-breed children.
.....I would love to have your thoughts and input.

Jane,
Just thought you would like to know that the John Harris/Sarah Tyner relationship did in fact bear natural children. The children were not adopted by John Harris as some speculate. The DNA results just came in 2 days ago, and a living Tyner is confirmed to have the same Y-Chromosome DNA markers as a living Harris. The common ancestor is Thomas Harris 1636 IOW.
Further up the direct male line are included the powerful Heriz knights of Nottingham. Even further back, these are Normans that were with William the Conqueror during the Battle of Hastings. The Heriz knights were feudatory to William Pevrel, the natural son of William the Conqueror. Evidence suggests that the Heriz family either fought alongside Pevrel or Robert de Beaumont during the Battle of Hastings.
Cheers,
Michael Harris

The Isham Harris who m. Martha Mable Green was the son of Maj. West Harris who was born in the Isle of Wight Co. Virginia. in 1714 and who early on moved to Granville Co., NC. and later to Salisbury Co., NC, if my memory serves me right. The Civil War era governor of Tennessee is descended from that particular line. West in turn was the son of Edward Harris of the Isle of wight who was the son of Thomas(Jr.) of the Isle of Wight and in turn was the son of Thomas Harris & Alice West. Thomas, b. ca. 1614, was the son of John Harrys & Dorothy (Lymbrey or Calcott). John, b. ca. 1585, was the son of Sir William Harrys & Alice Smythe of Crixse in Essex, Eng. & the brother of Capt.

This Harris genealogy is confusing since there are so many Harris. I hope this information is right but together maybe we can figure it out. I show a John Harris married Mildred with a sister Jane. I list their parents as Thomas Harris and Ann Martin. I show Thomas Harris as being born 1636 in Charles City County, Virginia dying 1688 in Isle of Wight, Virginia. I have no other information of Ann Martin. I do show that they had the following children. Edward Harris married Mary Turner, Jane Harris marring Jones, John Harris married Mildred, Thomas married Judith Edwards, Robert married Ann Fulgham, George married Martha, Martin, William married Rebecca, Ann. The interesting thing I show is that John Harris married second Sarah Tyner the daughter of Micholas Tyner. I show no children with Mildred but 3 with Sarah Tyner. I show them listed as John Harris, William Tyner Harris and Sarah Tyner Harris. Please let me know what you think. I show no spouses and just birth years of John and William. I don't even know where I picked this up at so could be all messed up.
Thank You

Generation No. 3

5. NICHOLAS TYNER (NICHOLAS, NICHOLAS) was born Abt. 1715 in Northampton County, North Carolina, and died December 12, 1752 in Northhampton County, North Carolina. He married ELIZABETH DEW, daughter of JOHN DEW and ELIZABETH BRYANT. She was born Abt. 1720 in Edgecomebe County, North Carolina.

Notes for NICHOLAS TYNER:
Nicholas Tyner and Elizabeth Dew were living in the Chowan District at the time of Dempsey Tyner's birth. Also, Elizabeth Dew had a sister named Sarah. Sarah's husband was named Dempsey Barnes. Maybe Dempsey Tyner was named after Dempsey Barnes?
See: http://tyner.simplenet.com/tyner/tyner2.htm

Elizabeth Dew was born to John Dew III and Elizabeth Bryant. around 1720/1725 in Edgecombe co., NC or possibly Bertie Co. before Edgecombe was formed from Bertie. John Dew III moved from Bertie Co. to Edgecome Co. and finally settled in Northampton Co., where he died. His will was probated in Northampton in 1760. Elizabeth Dew was a widow at the time of her father's death.

http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/vafdking/dew.htm says Elizabeth Dew married William Tyner, Senior.

http://ivanlewis.com/genealogy/sones.html says he was "Nicholas Oliver Tyner III."

WilliamKerr at bellsouth.net gives this family another daughter, Sarah, and traces a line from her, but I haven't heard of her before. She marries a John Harris Tyner, whom I haven't heard of before, either. See http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=gilead&id=I045141

Subject: [TYNER] William Tyner/Dempsey Tyner
I am confused (what's new about that!). Perhaps a Tyner researcher can straighten me out.
.....In my research Dempsey Tyner b. 4 Aug 1755 d. 13 Oct 1842 is the son of Nicholas Tyner whose mother would be Elizabeth Dew. (That is, Dempsey's mother was Elizabeth Dew).
.....There is a reference to an Elizabeth as the wife of William Tyner (in his Last Will and Testament) This William being the brother of Nicholas and the uncle of Dempsey Tyner. A researcher has asserted that this Elizabeth is the same Elizabeth Dew.
.....My question is this. Is Elizabeth, wife of William Tyner just an Elizabeth (lineage unknown) or is she indeed a Dew and if she is a Dew and is it possible she is the same Elizabeth Dew that was married to Nicholas Tyner the father of Dempsey Tyner?
.....I know someone has the answer. The William Dew will, is quite clear, that his wife was an Elizabeth but of course there is no last name listed in the will. William also lists his children and there is no mention of Dempsey Tyner so it would seem he is is not a son to William.
.....Thanks for any help.

Hello North Carolina Researchers,
....I have posted this information before and am hoping that someone new to the list will recognize this information as part of their heritage also. For those of you who have read this before I apologize, but us Corbitt's tend to be just a tad stubborn.
…..I am trying to locate anyone who can fill me in on our branch of the Corbitt's that moved from Isle of Wight County, Va. to North Carolina in the early 1700's. Thus far I have the following information.
…1726 - Francis Corbitt bought land in Bertie Co., NC
…1739 - Johnson Corbitt sold land in Bertie Co. NC that Francis had bought in 1726
…1748 - William Corbitt bought land in Northampton Co., NC {220 acres}
…1755 - William Corbitt of Northampton Co. NC sold 100 acres in Isle of Wight Co., Va
…1757 - Johnson Corbitt bought land in Northampton Co., NC
....William Corbitt married Ann Tyner (Tynes) according to Isle of Wight Co., Va. Records. She was the daughter of Nicholas Tyner who died 1753 and wife Elizabeth. William later moved to Northampton Co., NC where he had bought land in 1748. They had the following children {that we know of} Josiah, Richard, Meredith.
....In searching the early census for North Carolina, I have found numerous entries for the surnames Corbit/Corbitt/ Corbet/Corbett, all variations of the Corbitt surname.
....Can anyone out there shed some light on our branch of the Corbitt's that moved to NC. We know that they are connected to our Corbitt's of Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties in Virginia, because we know that this branch of our line did migrate to North Carolina. We suspect they are siblings to our Samuel Corbitt Sr. who died and his will was probated in 1789, we just need the proof.
....H E L P us connect our missing ancestors.
Thank you
Pat Corbitt Johns

That website claims he married FANNIE ?, then ELIZABETH MAHON, then a third time to an unknown woman. She claims that John had a son, Jesse, by Elizabeth Mahon. Unfortunately, that son is already attached to John Tyner, John of John Harris Tyner, son of Sarah Tyner, in this family tree, so I'm going to leave it that way until DNA evidence shows a descendant of this line doesn't match the Harris family DNA. http://www.ourfamtree.org/browse.php/David-Kelly/p216615 has a John William Tyner (May 1743--1785) and Elizabeth Mahon (1745--1769) having a daughter, Elizabeth, born 1769 Darlington County, South Carolina, and dying there 13 May 1845. She married David Kelly (1763--1 Jan 1838 Darlington County, SC).

Notes for JOHN HARRIS TYNER:
Oct 1741 HARRIS TYNER on jury list. Chowan Co, NC P&QS 1730-45,_

John Harris Tyner probably died in Johnson County, North Carolina.
John Harris Tyner, legatee of John Harris, gave in 1759 by deed of gift to his son John Tyner the 235 or 245 acres he owned in Chowan County. By this time his family were in Johnston County. John Tyner sold off the remainder of this Chowan land in 1764. In 1767 Haris Tyner Sr. was referred to in Johnston Court Minutes as an "aged person," incapable of business. He must have died soon after this. Richard disappeared from Johnston records then, and Harris was in South Carolina by 1770. John remained in Johston and left a will there in 1780, naming children Jesse and John Tyner and Millie Hood. Jessee Tyner left a will in Johston County in 1818.

"Jul 1767 Ordered that HARRIS TYNER SR be recommended as a poor aged person incapable of performing public duties & paying taxes.

11. WILLIAM PADGETT (MARGARET TYNER, NICHOLAS) was born Abt. 1720 in Chowan County, North Carolina, and died April 20, 1768 in St. Bartholomew, Colleton, South Carolina. He married SARAH BLITCHENDEN Abt. 1739 in Bladen County, North Carolina, daughter of THOMAS BLICHENDEN and MARY NORCOM. She was born January 14, 1715/16 in Perquimans Precinct, North Carolina, and died 1790 in Winton County, South Carolina.

Notes for WILLIAM PADGETT:
William Padget, Sr. was born in Chowan County, North Carolina, on Rocky Hock Creek at their plantation. This location can still be found on present-day North Carolina maps, north of Edenton. Before 1740, William married Sarah Blitchenden whose brothers came with them to South Carolina. The Blitchenden family was from Perquimans County, North Carolina. They also owned a plantation. William and Sarah came to Colleton County, South Carolina before 1768 with their seven sons. William Padget lived in St. Bartholomew Parish of Colleton County, S.C. and died there in 1768 leaving his will dated 1768 and proved Nov. 20, 1768 which was witnessed by his wife's Blitchenden relatives. He named only three sons in this will: Elijah (his administrator), William and Samuel, the last two being "cut out" of his will. His children were most likely born in North Carolina. Elijah inherited his father's plantation which he sold and moved his family to Edgefield County before 1780. William, Jr., Joel, and Jacob stayed in this area while the others departed. Samuel died in Winston County, South Carolina, while the other three lived in Edgefield County before Elijah departed for Georgia for the new land of Georgia land lottery. Elijah died there, and many of his descendants still live in Georgia, though some moved to Florida. Job and Josiah lived near each other as indicated on the 1790 South Carolina census and must have attended the Clouds Creek Baptist Church.

Capt. Thos. D. Boone, the intelligent and capable Clerk of our Superior Court, is one of the heroes of 1861-'65. We have before written of this worthy man and his charming wife, Willie Vann, daughter of Tilman D. Vann, of Maney's Neck. Captain Boone's father was William Boone, of Northampton, and his wife, Judith Boone, nee Deanes, the daughter of the old Sheriff, Thomas Deanes, of Hertford. His grandmother on his paternal side was Lucy Tyner, of Nicholas Tyner II, of Northampton. Sheriff Thomas Deanes' daughter Susan married Rev. Reuben Jones, and his daughter Malissa Anne married John E. Maget, of Northampton. The old Sheriff was married twice. By his first marriage he reared two sons, Mike and Thomas Deanes, Jr. The mother of his daughters was Susan Perry, a daughter of Capt. Abner Perry, of revolutionary fame, and who died in 1810.

of Hertford County, N. C. BY BENJ. B. WINBORNE.
MURFREESBORO. N. C.
Colonial and state political history of Hertford County, N. C
pages 266-267
the father of William Boone and the mother of Judge Faircloth, were half brother and sister. Dr. Freeman's son, George, married Carrie Hart, of Emporia, Va., the granddaughter of Dred Hart, of Southampton County, Va., who married a Suitor, of Northampton. Mrs. Dr. Freeman's paternal grandmother was Lucy Tyner, daughter of Nicholas Tyner, Jr., of Northampton County, by his first marriage. We cannot ascertain his wife's maiden name, but we learn from O'Dwyer's diary of 1824 that Nicholas Tyner's wife died September 29, 1824. Mr. Tyner was the son of William Tyner and grandson of Nicholas Tyner, Sr., of Dobbs County, who took out a patent for a large tract of land on the Meherrin
River, from the Lords Proprietors in 1724. He conveyed 640 acres of this land January 12, 1761, to his son, William Tyner, of Northampton County. William Tyner's other children were Drew, Mary, Sarah, Priscilla, Mildred, Arthur, and William. Lucy Tyner's sister, Lucretia, married Etheldred Peebles, an ancestor of Judge R. B. Peebles. O'Dwyer also tells that in September, 1824, Turner Peebles' daughter
married a Stancell.

Mrs. Dr. Freeman is the sister of Thomas D. Boone, the Clerk of the Superior Court of Hertford. Dr. Freeman and wife have only one child living. He is George King Freeman, the efficient railroad agent at Conway, N. C. Mrs. Dr. Freeman is regarded as one of the best read and most scholarly women
in the State.

Dr. Freeman's brother, James P. Freeman, lives at Union and has for a number of years been one of the county's principal officers. For years after the war he and his brother-in-law George W. Beverly, conducted successfully a mercantile business at Union under the firm name of Beverly & Freeman.
He was one of the County Commissioners for several years and later served the county as her Register of Deeds, an office which he resigned in 1905.

NOTE.-Nicholas Tyner on April 1, 1707, conveyed to William Williams 300 acres of land on which Sarah Sowells lived.

Notes for JOHN TYNER:
EMAIL FROM TYNER MAILING LIST:
Dennis,
My own belief is that this guy was just John Tyner, not John Harris Tyner Jr. and that he, Richard Tyner of GA and Harris Tyner of SC were the sons of John Harris Tyner of Chowan and Dobbs/Johnston Cos. John Tyner was probably the eldest since he sold the land in Chowan left to his father in the will of John Harris (1711) and remained in Johnston after John Harris Tyner's death (ca 1765?

19. HARRIS TYNER (JOHN HARRIS, SARAH, NICHOLAS) was born August 04, 1740 in Lancaster, South Carolina, and died Abt. 1778. He married NANCY ADAIR Abt. 1768, daughter of JAMES ADAIR and ESTHER MCBRIDE.

Notes for HARRIS TYNER:
At an early age Harris Tyner was appointed captain of a militia in the colony of SC under the British government, which was finally attached to the regular British Army, and he was detained as a British subject. Tradition says he died in the summer of 1778 while serving in the army, either in the Tory/Whig skirmishes or in the Indian wars.
================================
Jan. 6, 2007 from James Wilkinson:
...Just a little history that you all may know already.
...Kings Mountain Battle field is in South Carolina near North Carolina border West of the Catawba River near the Tyner family home place at start of the Revolution. Several of our Tyners were soldiers in the War, some on English side, notably Capt. Harris Tyner of the Royal British Army who received his
commission from General Cornwallis at Turkey Creek, South Carolina July 20, 1778.
...Source: LOYALISTS IN THE SOUTHERN CAMPAIGN OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, Vol
I, by Murtie June Clark, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc, 1981
(Captain-Lieutenant Harris Tyner, commissioned by Lord Cornwallis, page 48). Also on page 344, lists him as member (Lieutenant) of the South Carolina Colony Militia prior to Revolution with four or five other Tyners named.
..."Catawba" a Native American people formerly inhabiting territory along the (now named) Catawba River in North/South Carolina and that now located in western South Carolina.

===================
from Dawn Brown (crickethunter at juno.com)
.....Harris Tyner at an early age was appointed Captain of a militia in the colony of S. Carolina under the British Government, which was finally attached to the regular British Army, and he was detained as a British subject (which gave him much trouble). It was a kind of Whig and Tory (British loyalists) fight and hardly any of the pioneers knew which side they were on and cared less and long family quarrels were then settled by one family member murdering another and then revenged again for these murders. His final fate was never known to his family, but tradition says he was killed in 1778 in the army, but whether by the Whig/Tory struggle, or the Indians, we cannot now ascertain.
.....Another account says he died about 1778 of malaria in the swamps near the mouth of the Savannah River.
.....The exact place of his death is not known, but at the time of the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, the Tyner family live on the Great Pedee River near the line between North and South Carolina.

Notes for NANCY ADAIR:
According to grandson Elijah Hackleman, Harris Tyner was "raised on the Pedee River and there married Nancy Adair (an aunt of General Adair, a future Governor of Kentucky) and...most of the relatives have it that they immediately after marriage moved to Abbeville District, South Carolina...."
No evidence has been found linking her to General Adair. Could she be a child or close relative of James Adair, Indian trader and historian?
*************************************
L.E. Jones, LOUIS EDWARD JONES (1976), which is LDS film 0928097, item 10, has a William Adair, born 1719 in Co. Antrim, Ireland, who died in Mercer Co. Kentucky. He possibly married Mary Moore, b. 1729. His daughter Mary (born Jan. 9, 1784 in North Carolina, died 7-28-1835 in Fayette Co. IN) married Harris Tyner, another of my ancestors. PROBLEMS: The birthdate is way off date, and the Christian name of the daughter is wrong, but Jones has the death date correct. So how much faith can we put in his identification of the father of Nancy/ Mary?

Notes from Dawn Brown crickethunter at juno.com
Nancy Adair was a near relative of General John Adair, Governor of Kentucky. General Adair was born in Chester Co., S. C. in 1759. He fought in the Battle of New Orleans, Jan 8, 1815; commanded Kentucky Militia and was a member of Congress from Kentucky. He died in 1840. Sometime after the death of Harris Tyner, Nancy Adair Tyner married Burrel Stevens and her children by him were: Shadrick, Susan, Elial, Ezekiel, and Betsa. Elial and Ezekiel moved to Indiana, but the others stayed in Carolina and Georgia. Elial died in Wabash County, Indiana.

Dennis,
I think what needs to be done is to look for the "Dempsey" surname in the early records of Isle of Wight Co., VA and Chowan and Bertie Co., NC. I have come across more than one family there ca 1750 who had children with given names Dempsey. One that comes to mind is Dempsey Wood who was on the 1757 tax list of Bertie County. There has been one theory that Dempsey Tyner was the son of William Tyner Jr., who was the son of William Tyner Sr., who was the illegitimate son of Sarah Tyner and John Harris. William Tyner Sr. moved from Chowan to Bertie Co. about 1750 and left a will there in 1762. His son William Jr. may have stayed in Chowan but by 1771 had moved to South Carolina when he sold his father's land in Bertie from Craven Co., SC. William Jr. is probably one of the decendents of William and John Harris Tyner (Caleb, Harris, Richard etc) who show up in and around Abbevile District in the 1770's, along with Dempsey.

Child of WILLIAM TYNER and ELIZABETH ? is:
60.....i.....DEMPSEY TYNER, b. August 04, 1755, Chowan County, North Carolina, USA; d. October 13, 1842, Meriwether County, Georgia, USA. No proof whatsover that he's their son, just an assumption. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~tynerdna/groups.html says DNA test results show that Dempsey is a descendant of Sarah Tyner/John Harris. Since he's a descendant of Sarah and John, he is NOT Indian. Follow his descendants on this website; some apply for Indian membership claiming he was a full-blooded Cherokee, some say their Tyner ancestors were NOT Indian and their membership comes through their mother. Bear in mind that many tribes didn't care about bloodlines; if you lived with the tribe, took part in tribal activities, and had family members who married in, you were a full member of the tribe. Very likely, when Dempsey rightly called himself a full Cherokee, his descendants heard "full-blooded" and completely misunderstood.

MEANS, WILLIAM (1809-1876). William (William A., William Marshall) Means, soldier, legislator, and public official, was born in Georgia on December 14, 1809. He married Frances Amelia Blackburn around 1831, and in 1832 the couple moved from Louisiana to what is now Sabine County, Texas. Means was in the Texas army from January 21 until April 21, 1836, and was a baggage guard during the battle of San Jacinto.qv After his army service he returned to Sabine County, where he served as the county's first sheriff. From 1843 until 1845 he represented Sabine County in the House of the Eighth and Ninth congresses. Shortly after his last term in Congress, Means and his family moved to DeWitt County; there they lived until the late 1850s, when they moved to San Patricio County. Means helped to establish the community of Meansville in 1874, when he and his son Napoleon, with fourteen others, built the combination church and school building that served as the focus of the settlement. On January 31, 1876, Means was killed while confronting a posse that had come to his house to arrest three of his sons for disturbing the peace in Bee County. His death precipitated the Means-Garner Feud.qv

Col. William Marshall Means, a veteran of the Battle of San Jacinto, came to San Patricio County with his family in the 1850s and settled southeast of present Odem. Means was county sheriff from 1862 to 1867. The center of the community was a two-story building erected by the Methodist congregation in 1874. It also served as a schoolhouse, ecumenical church and community center. By January 1876, the community was thriving and headed for a promising future when three of Col. Means' sons went on a shooting spree in Papalote in Bee County. A posse which included San Patricio County Sheriff Ed Garner tracked them to their father's ranch, where Col. Means was killed. In August, Ed Garner was shot as he attended church services. Alley Means was convicted of murder, but later pardoned by Gov. John Ireland. The townspeople lived in fear until the Texas Rangers ordered the Means families to leave the area. By the early 1880s they had sold their San Patricio County holdings.

"Madison Parker and Frances C. Cross were married in Fayette Co., Tenn., December 30, 1847. She was a daughter of Major Reddick Cross (177?-1847) and Elizabeth D. (Tyner) Cross, whose plantation (some 1009 acres), Elysian Grove, was located in western Fayette County; the red-brick house thereon is now a forlorn derelict compared to its former splendor. It is described by Bernice Cargill in an article that appeared in the "Fayette County Historical Society Bulletin," volume one, number seventeen (July 1987), pages 67-70. The Crosses had come there from North Carolina about 1836.

"According to her obituary that appeared in the NASHVILLE CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, a Methodist publication, April 19, 1873, written by John W. Shelton, her son-in-law, Elizabeth Cross was born in Northampton County, North Carolina, May 8, 1796, a daughter of Nicholas Tyner, a "soldier of the Revolution." She died in Fayette Co., April 1, 1873. (In the WHIG-TRIBUNE, Jackson, April 12, 1873, "At her late residence in Fayette county, Tenn., on the 4th inst., Mrs. E. D. Cross, in the seventy-fifth year of her age." Note April 4 not 1st.)

"Elizabeth D. Tyner was married to James H. "Sowersberry" August 8, 1817 (bond) in Northampton County. In the 1820 U.S. Census of that county, James H. "Somerley" appears with a male, aged 16-26; a female, aged 16-26 and a female, aged to ten years old. Evidently, Sowersby died and as a widow, Elizabeth "Sowerly" was married to Reddick Cross of Hertford Co., N.C. March 15, 1827 (bond). The RALEIGH REGISTER, April 6, 1827 announced the marriage of Maj. Reddick Cross of Hertford Co to Miss Elizabeth "Sowerby" of Northampton Co. March 15, 1827.

"In the land settlement, Elizabeth D. Cross received the homestead and land; of her children, receiving portions of the real estate of the late Major Cross were (their order of birth suggested by their ages listed in the 1850 U.S. Census, October 23, Fayette Co., Civil District 9, household of Elizabeth Cross): Martha, born about 1829; Rebecca E., born July 1834; Thomas C., born about 1831; Susan, born about 1836; Cornelia A., born April 1839; William, born about 1840.

"Major Cross' will-testament was presented for probate May 2, 1847, soon after his demise (Fayette Co. Court Minute Book C, page 377); as his wife, Elizabeth D. Cross and a son, David C. Cross, whom he had designated as co-executors, failed to act, Joel Jones was appointed estate administrator,

"Oct. 2, 1848. (IBID. Book D, page 12) After Jones' death, Madison Parker was appointed to act in this capacity, January 4, 1854. (IBID., Book E, page 248)

"There appears to have been some contention among his heirs over the disposition of Major Cross' estate and the case, John W. Shelton v Susan V. Cross and others was heard in Fayette County Chancery Court, the results of which were recorded in Chancery Minute Book K, page 321, but that record was destroyed when the courthouse burned in 1925.

"In her will-testament, Oct. 16, 1869, Elizabeth D. Cross bequeathed $15 to her daughter, Sarah R. Fain (evidently the surviving child of her first marriage); daughters Frances C. Parker, Martha A. Shelton, Rebecca E. Bartlett, each were left $25; daughter, Susan Cross, a bedstead and bedding; son, Thomas C. Cross, a loungestead; daughter Cornelia A. Cross, rest of her personalty except William Cross' bed. Her son, William Cross, was to receive "the homestead on which I now reside, the same willed to us by my late husband Maj. Reddick Cross." If he died without children, the homeplace was to be inherited by Cornelia A. Cross. Son William, executor. Witnesses G. M. Bartlett and N. Blackwell (Fayette Co. Will Book B, pages 327-328) As the witnesses to her will lived in Shelby Co., Tenn. the court ruled Oct. 9, 1873 that the probate would be postponed on this will until it could be proven appropriately. (Fayette Co. Court Minute Book M, page 485) Finally, on April 7, 1875, Dr. Nicholas Blackwell of Shelby Co., Tenn., one of the witnesses, deposed that he saw Elizabeth D. Cross execute the document as her will; that he was familiar with G. M. Bartlett, the other witness, etc. The will was admitted to probate on this date. (IBID. Book N, page 542)"

Notes for JESSE TYNER:
Will of Jesse Tiner (abstracted)

Per Jim Arnold's WorldConnect tree at rootsweb.com
….."Johnston county marriage records reveal widow Sarah Midyett, marrying Jesse Tiner on November 26, 1812 and the 1813 Johnston county court minutes orders that Josiah Meddyatt, "an orphan child of Sarah Tiner, be bound and apprenticed to Jacob Brooks until he arrives to the age of 21, he now being about 11 years old, to be taught the business of carpentering". Jesse Tiner's Johnston county will was probated in August 1818, and makes, among other bequeaths, negros Tamer & Caleb to his wife Sally.
...Sally (Brooks) Midyett Tiner remained in Johnston county at least until the taking of the 1820 census where she is listed as Sally Tyner over the age of 45 with 2 male slaves and 1 foreigner (not naturalized) in her household. The next record of evidence is recorded in Haywood Co., Tennessee where she made her will on January 12, 1826 as "Sally Tyner of Madison County, Tennessee" leaving negro, Tamer, to her daughter Ann Wellings and her Bible to son Micajah. The remainder, after the debts were paid, went to her son Josiah Midyett."

Who Jesse married and when is a mystery. Some trees give him two Sallies and a Sarah, which is flat out incredible. Sarah Brooks couldn't possibly be the mother of Jesse and John--she'd be well past 50 when they were born.

Notes for SARAH BROOKS:
All the following is from http://www.rootsweb.com/~nchyde/TENNCONN.HTM :
Sarah moved from Hyde county sometime before the taking of the 1810 census where she is found in Johnston Co., N.C. as Sally Midget with 1 male 0-10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 16-26, 1 female 0-10, 2 females 10-16, 1 female 16-26, 1 female over 45, 1 slave and 1 free black. She, "Sarah Midyett, widow and relict of the late Jesse Midyett of Hyde Co., N.C.", releases a quit claim to Benjamin Hall on May 14, 1811 for the 3 1/2 acres that was originally sold to Christopher O'Neal in Feb. 1803.

Johnston county marriage records reveal widow Sarah Midyett, marrying Jesse Tiner on November 26, 1812 and the 1813 Johnston county court minutes orders that Josiah Meddyatt, "an orphan child of Sarah Tiner, be bound and apprenticed to Jacob Brooks until he arrives to the age of 21, he now being about 11 years old, to be taught the business of carpentering".

Sally (Brooks) Midyett Tiner remained in Johnston county at least until the taking of the 1820 census where she is listed as Sally Tyner over the age of 45 with 2 male slaves and 1 foreigner (not naturalized) in her household. The next record of evidence is recorded in Haywood Co., Tennessee where she made her will on January 12, 1826 as "Sally Tyner of Madison County, Tennessee" leaving negro, Tamer, to her daughter Ann Wellings and her Bible to son Micajah. The remainder, after the debts were paid, went to her son Josiah Midyett.

54. WILLIAM JASPER TYNER (HARRIS, JOHN HARRIS, SARAH, NICHOLAS) was born April 09, 1771 in Abbeville County, South Carolina, and died September 18, 1855 in Decatur County, Indiana, USA. He met (1) ELIZABETH HACKLEMAN Abt. 1793 in Lincoln County, North Carolina, USA, daughter of JOHAN HACKLEMAN and MARY OSBORN. She was born July 20, 1774 in Lincoln County, North Carolina, and died August 20, 1810 in Fayette County, Indiana, USA. He married (2) MARTHA JANE HAMILTON Abt. 1811 in Scott County, Kentucky, USA. She was born 1775 in Virginia, and died June 01, 1840 in Decatur County, Indiana, USA. He married (3) NANCY JANE CALLAHAN August 28, 1842 in Decatur County, Indiana. She was born Abt. 1798 in Kentucky, USA.

Notes for WILLIAM JASPER TYNER:
William Tyner was a Baptist, buried at the Baptist Meeting House Southwest of Greensburg, IN. (Or is he? There's a photo at findagrave.com of William and Martha sharing a gravesite at Horseshoe Bend Cemetery, Decatur County, Indiana. It calls him Elder William Tyner, gives a death date of 18 September 1854, and says he died aged 83 years 5 months.) His nickname was "Dover," which I think is a religious reference.

Elijah Hackleman, on the 4 families of Tyner, Hackleman, Osborn, and Sailors:
"On the 18th of March 1802, the families of William Tyner and Abraham Hackleman became brothers-in-law for each married the other's sister. They then started by packhorse to the new country of Kentucky, being the first of the four families to leave the neighborhood in the Abbeville District.
.....They came the immigrant route over Clinchhuts, past the crab orchards to Georgetown, Scott County, Kentucky. After a journey of five long weeks they stopped to make that country their home, but William Tyner and family soon moved to Ohio where he organized and established the first Baptist church in that state, their next move was to Brookville, Indiana. They joined the Baptist Church there, build in 1812, three miles from town.
.....They spent the remainder of their lives there and were buried in the churchyard...that cemetery was eventually abandoned and many bodies were removed to Brookville Cemetery but a monument still stands to mark the graves of William Tyner and wife. The old church has been taken over by the Indiana Historical Society."

INDIAN CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH
"The Regular Baptist Church of Christ" on Indian Creek was "constituted on July 28, 1810; by Elders Joshua Palmore, Moses Frazy, and William Tyner; number of members 22 . . ."
...Two itinerant Baptist preachers, famous for their work in the early days of the North West Territory served this church well. Elder William Tyner of Brookville, Indiana, a man "of rare worth and a natural born orator" moderated the first meeting of the Church in the cabin of John Morris. That July day Elder Tyner rode horse-back through the dense forest up along the White Water River to the mouth of Big Cedar Creek up that creek, across a divide to Indian Creek. While Elder Tyner was watering his horse in Big Cedar Creek, he saw an Indian with drawn bow on opposite bank, with arrow pointed at Tyner's heart. Elder Tyner stared "for an eternity" before the Indian lowered his bow andmelted into the forest.

(The following is from a booklet dated September 8, 1963, commemorating the Restoration and Dedication of Indian Creek Pioneer Burial Ground and Church.):
"...The new settlers met in cabins fro their first church services. The Regular Baptists as early as 1809 had invited Elder William Tyner of Brookville, Indiana to preach to them on Saturdays and Sundays. He had come into the White Water Valley in 1800 and by 1805 had a church started on the Little Cedar Creek, south of Brookville. This became the Mother Church of the White Water Association. On July 28, 1810, he moderated the meeting at which was organized The Indian Creek Church in the cabin of John Morris (great grandfather of Mrs. Ellis Abbot of Reilly).”
...From Elder Tyner’s own account of his trip to Reilly, we learn that he rode through the forest, following the White Water River to the mouth of the Big Cedar Creek and followed that creek until he arrived just west of his destination on Indian Creek. Stopping to let his horse drink in Big Cedar creek, he saw an Indian standing motionless on the opposite bank with drawn bow, the arrow pointed at his heart. Unarmed, as there were so few Indians in this area in 1810, the Elder stared at the Indian, trying not to show his fright, but he said it seemed an eternity before the Indian lowered his bow and melted away
into the forest.
...Arriving at the cabin of John Morris, he found many members of the Baptist faith. From the original minute books, we have the following account written in ink by Abraham Lee, surveyor, charter member and the first writing clerk: “The Regulars Baptist Church of Christ on Indian Creek was constituted on the
28th day of July 1810 by Elders Joshua Palmore, Moses Frazy, and William Tyner, number of members, 22."

Notes for ELIZABETH HACKLEMAN:
Elizabeth Hackleman was a Baptist. On August 2, 1810, she was bur. in Old Brick Meeting House Cemetery 2 mi. below Brookville, Franklin, IN.

R.I.P. Rest In Pieces
Grandma Goes To Court
.....A very pregnant Elizabeth “Betsy” Hackleman Tyner, our ancestor, climbed aboard a packhorse in Abbeville, SC in 1802 and set out for Kentucky and the Indiana Territory. Tagging along were five children under age eight . The sixth baby would arrive two days after arrival in Kentucky. In 1810, at age 36, and after bearing nine children, she was the first to be buried in what would become Little Cedar Grove Baptist cemetery and one of the early burials in Franklin County. A fieldstone at the far end of the grave yard, with the carved initials 'ET', is believed to mark the actual grave. Sometime after 1820, members of the family commissioned a more elaborate memorial marker which, as of this writing, now leans against a wall inside the old Little Cedar Grove Baptist church. It reads 'Sacred to the memory of Elizabeth, wife of William Tyner, who departed this life August 2nd, 1810 Aged 30 years and 3 days.' (Actually she was 36). The relief carving, about four feet high may be the work of Abraham Voris, a noted stone carver of the day. This account describes the part Betsy’s grave marker played in the murder of Monica Lemen in 1987 .
.....On Valentines Day, 1987, two young boys decided to explore the creek just below Little Cedar Baptist Church while the grown-ups attended to last minute preparations for a romantic wedding to be held in the historic old church.
.....While wandering along the creek bed the boys came upon two freshly severed legs stuck into a pair of fancy cowgirl boots laced with fringe.
.....Meanwhile, inside the old church, last minute preparations were made. Items of odd character had to be cleared from the minister's pulpit before the ceremony could begin They must have been left behind by youthful pranksters. Discovery of the severed legs surely dampened the festivities.
.....The Connersville Barracks of the State Police began by checking for missing persons in the area. It became obvious the legs belonged to a "big girl," so many missing girls were eliminated. A Cincinnati father had reported his daughter missing on February 10. The police traced the boots to the shop where they were sold and the name of the buyer matched the missing girl.
.....Monica Denise Lemen, age 21, had been a member of a satanic cult of devil worshippers. The police collected information and narrowed the suspects to John Lee Fryman, age 24, known as a satanic priest. He was living in a trailer at Fairfield, Ohio with Beverly Cox of Dearborn County Indiana.
.....Fryman was a satanic priest. Monica had been a follower but had left his group for another. By one account she was "bad mouthing" Fryman and his ability as a priest. Another account said she had romantic inclinations and Fryman was tired of being “pestered”. Besides he already had a trailer-mate, Beverly Cox.
.....Fryman decided to solve his pest problem. He lured Monica to his trailer and, with his girl friend present, shot Monica in the back of the head as she knelt at the 'altar'. This happened about February 9, 1987. He drained the body of blood and left it in the trailer for several days until he decided how to dispose of it.
.....Monica's body was too large for the back of his small Pinto, so he sawed off her legs about eight inches below the body. He disposed of the torso in a dumpster somewhere east of Fairfield. He intended to dispose of the legs in the dumpster at the IGA in Brookville, but decided to throw them over the bank behind the old church "to desecrate the church." Had he put the legs in the dumpster at the IGA store, Monica would probably have been a missing person and her murder might not have been known. According to classmate, Donovan Blose, a retired police captain in Richmond Indiana, “they dug up half the Rumpke Waste landfill in Cincinnati and never did find her top half”. In this instance, half a body was better than none.
.....Fryman became aware that the police were looking for him and left home for Richmond, to borrow money from relatives. While fleeing Richmond, he was stopped up by the State Police west of Centerville, IN on U.S. 40 on a parole violation and carrying a handgun with no permit.
.....In searching Fryman's trailer for evidence, the police and Cincinnati investigators,found Grandma Betsy’s tombstone had been used as an altar. Everything in the room was painted black. Remains of sacrificed animals were found on the altar along with a shell casing from the murder weapon.
.....The group had used the inside of the old church for its devil worship. Traces of blood were found but it’s uncertain whether it was human or animal. At least on one occasion, passersby reported dim lights inside. Investigation might not have been prudent.
.....Mick Wilz, a member of the Franklin County Historical Association, learned that the police in Hamilton Ohio had Betsy’s gravestone stone and needed help to trace it back to the old brick church. Jenny and Mick Wilz had been married in that same church and had their picture taken next to the stone on their wedding day in June, 1980. He called the Police in Hamilton Ohio and told them of his picture that might help. Within an hour the Indiana police were ringing his doorbell. Since the murder actually took place across the state line in Ohio, the trial would be held in Butler County.
.....Mr. Wilz was called to testify in Hamilton and sat in the court house hallway for three days. It took less than a minute to connect the church, the legs and Elizabeth Hackleman Tyner’s grave marker to the Monica’s murder. The black wax symbols on the gravestone proved to be vital evidence.
.....Fryman’s girl friend was given immunity and added information which led to a murder conviction He was sentenced to the penitentiary near Lebanon, Ohio. During a prison riot some years later, he was badly beaten by black Muslims who hate satanic priests. The girl friend was sent to England to avoid threats by members of the satanic cult.
.....Two years after the trial, Grandma Betsy’s gravestone was released from custody and allowed to go home and rest in peace. Monica was not so fortunate.
.....And Mick Wilz never got back his wedding pictures.

BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF WAYNE, FAYETTE, UNION, AND FRANKLIN COUNTIES, INDIANA
by Lewis Publishing Company
John H. Tyner.
.....An energetic and progressive farmer and honored citizen of Posey Township is John H. Tyner, who has spent his entire life in Fayette County, his birth occurring in Harrison Township, October 3, 1821. His parents, John and Fanny (Martin) Tyner, were born, reared and married in South Carolina. The family was one of prominence in that state, its representatives being mostly planters. The paternal grandfather was killed in the Revolutionary War. Three of his sons, William, and John and James (twins), came to Indiana in 1816 and located in Fayette County, where they entered land from the government and improved farms.
.....John Tyner, the father of our subject, entered three hundred and twenty acres in Harrison Township, and from the wild land developed a fine farm, on which he spent the remainder of his life. He was one of the most prominent and influential farmers and stock raisers of his day, and in his undertakings met with well-deserved success. He was broad-minded and liberal, public spirited and enterprising, and was a genial and entertaining companion. By his ballot he supported the Democratic Party. He always refused to become a candidate for office, though often solicited by his friends to accept that of County Commissioner. He was an earnest and faithful member of the Primitive Baptist Church, and served as deacon in the same. His wife's brothers were Stephen Martin, William Martin and George Martin; Stephen lived in Franklin County, and William and George in Fayette County. Our subject is the youngest of a family of ten children, the others being Drury, who died in Wabash County, Indiana; Mrs. Serena Kolb; Nancy, wife of J. A. Cook; James, who died in Hancock County; Emily, wife of Dr. Gordon; Stephen, who died in Tipton County; Anna, wife of F. Taylor; Mehitable, who died young; Milton, who died in Harrison Township, Fayette County.
.....John H. Tyner, whose name introduces this sketch, passed his early life upon his father's farm, attending the subscription schools taught in an old log schoolhouse for three months during the winter and assisting his father during the remainder of the year. The latter died when John H. was small, but he continued with his mother until she too was called to her final rest, and as soon as large enough he took charge of the homestead. In 1840 he was married, and about two years later the mother died, at which time the heirs amicably divided the estate. Soon afterward Mr. Tyner purchased eighty acres of heavily timbered land, and after erecting a cabin thereon he commenced to clear and improve the place, which required much hard labor. As his financial resources increased he bought more land, and now has a fine farm, where on he has successfully engaged in general farming and stock raising.
.....Mr. Tyner was married in 1840 to Miss Mary Carver, a daughter of Lewis and Mehitable (Castiline) Carver, natives of New Jersey, where they were married. In 1822 they removed to Steuben County, New York, where the father engaged in farming for ten years, and then came to Fayette County, Indiana. Purchasing a farm near Bentonville, he engaged in agricultural pursuits here for several years, and on selling out moved to Madison County, where he purchased another farm, on a portion of which the town of Orestes now stands. There his death occurred. His occupation through life was farming, and he met with a fair degree of success. He was a strong Democrat and was well posted on the leading issues of the day. He wielded considerable influence in his party, but would never accept office. He was a loving husband and an indulgent father, and lived amicably with all men, never suing nor having been sued by anyone. Both he and his estimable wife were faithful members of the Primitive Baptist Church. To this worthy couple were born eleven children, namely: Mary, wife of our subject; Rebecca, wife of S. Wickston; Charlotte, who first married Thomas Stanley and second W. Willitts; Orin, a resident of Kansas; Rachel, wife of J. Harris; Sarah, who died when a young lady; Hulda; Calvin, a resident of Kansas; Lloyd, a railroad man; Zilla, wife of I. Ellis; and Byron, a farmer of Fayette County, Indiana.
.....Mr. and Mrs. Tyner were living at their beautiful country home, in the full enjoyment of well spent lives, surrounded by a host of warm and admiring friends, when on the 1st day of October 1899, Mrs. Tyner passed away in death. Religiously she held membership in the Primitive Baptist Church, as does also her husband. Mr. Tyner is a leader in all social and political maters of his township, and although a strong Democrat he votes at local elections for the ones whom he considers the best men, regardless of party ties. He has been chosen to fill several positions of honor and trust, and for fourteen years served as Township Trustee, with credit to himself and to the perfect satisfaction of his constituents. During that time he saved for the township considerable in the building of schoolhouses and on all public works.
59. MARGARET TYNER (HARRIS, JOHN HARRIS, SARAH, NICHOLAS) was born November 17, 1778 in Abbeville District, South Carolina, USA, and died June 20, 1845 in Rush County, Indiana, USA. She married ABRAHAM HACKLEMAN September 01, 1796 in North Carolina, USA, son of JOHAN HACKLEMAN and MARY OSBORN.

"Dempsey Tyner was born in Chowan County on Aug. 4, 1755, and was the son of William and Elizabeth Tyner. " (He gives no proof of any kind for birthdate or parents' identities, and he goes on at length about a John S. Tyner he claims is Dempsey's grandson but doesn't know the DOB or the parents of this alleged grandson.)

--1755 Chowan Co, NC -- Birth per Rev War Papers ***August***
--1776 Abbeville Co, SC -- Rev War per Rev War Papers
--1776: His first child Jackson Tyner, Sr., was born in 1776. Judith Rittenhouse Carpenter points out that "JACKSON TYNER'S TYNER-HUDDLESTON BIBLE LISTS DEMPSEY AND OBEDIENCE TYNER SO WOULD SEEM THAT OBEDIENCE WAS HIS MOTHER IN 1776." (Look under Obedience Sevier for the Bible; these notes are already too long for my computer program to add it!) Jackson married Mary Spivey in 1826. Mary took care of Dempsey and Obedience at least by 1840 when an older couple show up in their household. They record Dempsey's death. Mary helps Obedience with her application for support from Dempsey's Rev. War Pension.
--1780 Mary A. Tyner was born to Dempsey [On 18 Aug 1871, she was 91 years old].
--1780 Obedience Rhoda Tyner born. Married Jeremiah Hibbs abt. 1805 in Hamilton CO., TN.

Hamilton County )
.....On this 27th day of November 1832 personally appeared in this court before the Worshipful Justices of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions for Hamilton County aforesaid now sitting, Demsey Tyner resident of the County and State aforesaid aged seventy seven years and who being first duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7th 1832. That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers and served as herein stated that is to say that he volunteered under Captain Thomas Keelin Smith in Abbeville County South Carolina who was attached to the command of General Andrew Williamson and Colonel Robert Anderson. This applicant was marched by the above named officers against the Cherokee Indians to Brass Town on the Tugulo river now in South Carolina but then in possession of the Cherokees - where he saw some skirmishing from there we were marched to Tamossa another Indian Town where he had an engagement with the Indians in which seventeen of our party were killed and wounded among which was Captain Hargrove killed. This applicant returned with the wounded from the last mentioned place to Seneca where some of our troops were forted at what was called Seneca Fort. This applicant was sent for by Captain Andrew Miller who commanded a Company of Rangers on the frontier of South Carolina under whom this applicant served as a Spy- three months- being about six weeks under Capt Smith as before stated this tour about four months and a half. This tour was served in the year 1776 in the latter part of the summer and fall as well as he recollects. This applicant immediately after serving as a spy was called on to go to Snow Camps under Captain Miller against the Tories and served better than two months against them and returned without effecting anything except taking a number of Tories as prisoners.
.....This applicant in the spring of '77 volunteered under Captain Miller, Col Anderson and Gen'l Williamson in the County of Abbeville and State of South Carolina and left home the 7th day of April and was marched by the before named officers on what was called the Florida Expedition to St. Mary's river to a place called Fort Tonen where the Army remained two or three weeks and was marched back by the same officers to XXXXXXXXXXX and was dismissed at Cherokee Hills- in Georgia and was five days getting from there home. got home the 15th of August- having served about four months this tour. Some time in the fall after this applicant returned home he again volunteered and was marched by Lieutenant Norrid, a Lieutenant of Captain Millers Company under Gen Williamson and Major Middleton (who was an acting major in the Florida Campaign) to the siege of Savanna and was at the siege about two weeks - the Company to which this applicant belonged was marched from there to Parker's Ferry on Stone River to oppose the Tories who were collecting there. Gen Marion had dispersed them before our company reached there. Our Company was dismissed at said Ferry to return home and did return - having served this tour ten weeks or more. Soon after this applicant returned from the siege at Savannah he was again called on by his Captain (Miller) and marched to McGowens blockhouse against the Tories where Capt Millers and Captain Baskin's Companies had an engagement with the Tories, and Capt Miller was shot through the knee and he and Capt Baskins taken prisoners by the Tories. This applicant and several others who were in the engagement made their escape without being taken and joined Major Pickens at the Cherokee Ford and marched against the Tories to Kittle Creek under him where we had another engagement with them and defeated them and took three hundred prisoners. This applicant was ordered on the guard to guard the prisoners to Ninety-Six. After guarding them to Ninety-Six this applicant was frequently engaged as a scout against the tories for a considerable length of time and was much embarrassed by them until Gen. Greene sent word to South Carolina that he would relieve the countrys - and General Clark then Col Clark from the State of Georgia came into South Carolina and took command of about three hundred troops - among the number this applicant entered the service again as a volunteer and was marched to Keeley branch of Long Cane Creek and had several engagements with the British and Tories under Kouger and Allen in which engagement this applicant was wounded in the arm and was taken prisoner until after the Entam battle when this applicant was exchanged at Orangeburg - or Sullivan Island, and returned home having been in service and a prisoner upwards of nine months this tour. This applicant then removed to Edgefield County S. Carolina and volunteered under Captain Thomas Lewis who was commanded by Col LeRoy Hammond and was marched to Dorchester twenty five miles from Charleston but was in no engagement this expedition. After lying there some time this applicant was discharged which discharge has long since been lost. This applicant not knowing that it would ever benefit him he knows not what has become of it. The applicant considered himself at all times ready to obey the calls of his officers and has given the best account of his actual services he is able to give from his recollection. He knows he served more than he can recall the particulars about. This applicant don't recollect the names of any regular officers of the American Troops with whom he served except the Count De Estang - General Sampler, General Marion and Gen. Pulaski - with all of whom this applicant served at different times. He states that he has no documentary evidence of the services. That if he received more than one written discharge he has forgotten it. He does not know of any living witness he can procure as to his services during the Revolution. He states that he was born in the year 1755 in North Carolina Chowan County on the 4th day of August. He has no record of his age-his father left a Bible to him that had a record of his age in it with the ages of three of his children which Bible among other property was taken or destroyed by the Tories in the Revolution.
.....He was living in Abbeville County South Carolina when he first entered the service and removed as he has stated before the revolution ended. After the revolution he removed from Edgefield S C to Jackson County State of Georgia where he lived about seven years he does not recollect how long he lived in Edgefield S.C.before he moved to Georgia. He removed from Georgia to the State of Tennessee, Roane County, where he resided about five years from where he removed to Hamilton County where he has resided about eighteen years - being a resident here before the county was organized and still resides there. He has stated how he was called into service and the several circumstances of his service as well as he can recollect. He has stated all he recollects about his discharges
.....He states that he is known in his present neighborhood to David Henderson, Esq and James Russell who can testify as to his character for veracity and good behavior and their belief of his services as a soldier of the revolution but not to any clergyman whom he can obtain.
.....He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and he declares that his name is not on the pension role of the agency of any state.

EARLY HAMILTON SETTLERS, printed by Sheridan Books, Inc., copyright 2001 by John Wilson, pg. 310-312:
....."Dempsey Tyner was one of Hamilton County's earliest settlers. John S. Tyner, the founder of Tynersville, formed a company to fight for the Confederacy. But the Tyners had disappeared from the county by the end of the Civil War.
.....The Tyners are said to go back to England, where they lived near the Tyne River. In the early days in America, the name was sometimes spelled Tynes. A descendant said they were known in England as "shipbuilders and boisterous beer drinkers." Nicholas Tynes (Tyner) was in Isle of Wight County, Va., and Chowan County, N.C. In 1669 he sold 400 acres that he "lately purchased of Thomas Hoskinse" on the Chowan River. Nicholas Tyner Jr., of Isle of Wight County, received several hundred acres in Chowan County from his father, Nicholas Tyner, Sr. In 1716, he sold 450 acres of this property, including "all the houses, gardens, orchards, etc."
.....Dempsey Tyner ws born in Chowan County on Aug. 4, 1755, and was the son of William and Elizabeth Tyner. Dempsey moved to Edgefield District, S.C., along with some of his relatives. Harris Tyner died at Abbeville in 1844. William Tyner also moved to this section of South Carolina. He died in 1778. Dempsey Tyner joined the Patriot army while at Abbeville. After his Revolutionary War service, he moved to Jackson County, Ga., then he pushed on to Roane County, Tenn. He then moved to Hamilton County.
.....Dempsey Tyner's wife was Obedience "Biddy" Sevier. His sons apparently included John, Hiram, Reuben Jackson, Jackson, Jesse, Nathan, Lewis, Sevier and William H. John was born in 1789 and married Rachel Rider, who was born in 1793 in South Carolina. A daughter, Emaline was born in Rhea County in 1821. She married Isaac K. Burkhart, who was also from Rhea County. John Tyner died in 1850. Sevier and William Tyner of Hamilton County served in the fighting against the Seminole Indians in Florida in 1837-38. Reuben Jackson Tyner was in the Mexican War. He had married Jenny Carter at Roane County in 1811. Jackson Tyner married Mary Spivey at Putnam County, Ga., in 1826. William Tyner lived from about 1818 to 1861. His first wife was Lucy Ann. His second wife was Catherine Brigmon, whom he married at Walker County, Ga., in 1846.
.....Reuben Jackson Tyner helped build the little log schoolhouse in Chattanooga at Fifth and Lookout Streets. A daughter was Martha Tyner Papineau. Her daughter, Mrs. Minnie E. Fanning, lived on Battery Place.
.....Some of the Tyners married into the Indian tribes, and the wife of Dempsey Tyner was apparently from the Cherokees. A number of Tyner descendants later filed claims with the government for funds going to those with Indian ancestors. Dempsey and Lewis Tyner in 1821 in Hamilton County witnessed a deed from William Brown of the Cherokee Nation to John Cornett for property about a mile below the mouth of North Chickamauga Creek.
.....Dempsey Tyner died Oct. 13, 1842. Obedience Sevier Tyner lived her last days with Jackson and Mary Tyner in Meriweather County, Va."

.....In looking at the 1830 US census for Hamilton County, Tennessee, page 85 shows a Damsey Tyner age 70-79 and a female (Obedience?) age 70-79. Yet, I show them as both being deceased by Oct 1842 in Merriwether, Georgia.
.....Any comments? Did Dempsey and Obedience go back to Georgia?
.....A Lewis Tyner with six children and a wife are shown on page 84 of the same census. No other Tyners were listed.

From: "Jerry Cranford" 13 April 2004
"I have been trying to discover the origins of Obedience Tyner (Dempsey's wife) with little success. I did find her name in the book "History of the Lauderdales in America: 1714-1850 by Clint Lauderdale published by Heritage Books, Bowie Maryland, 1998. It references Frances Tyner and Robert Lauderdale, my 3g grandparents by saying that Frances was one half Cherokee, the daughter of Dempsey and Obedience Tyner (a Cherokee)...

Date: Thu, 12 Jan 2006 02:05:46 -0500 (EST)
From: Keri Ann Webster
To: TYNER-L at rootsweb.com
I am on a trail of finding the history of Obedience. John Sevier who signed her marriage certificate as Obedience being indentured to, was Gov John Sevier. He was constantly in battle with Cherokee's, and met his match in Chief Dragging Canoe. It is quite clear after reading the history of John Sevier, that he
killed MANY Cherokees at times wiping out entire villages. It is most likely he abducted Obedience renamed her and used her as a slave. Dempsey Tyner was likely HIS Cherokee interpreter. Thus being given Obedience as a gift perhaps? I am talking to decsendants of Dragging Canoe, and hope they have more info for me. i will keep you all posted.

Notes for WILLIAM PADGETT:
According to Bela Herlong, William Padgett left Edgefield County at the age of just 19 years old after requesting and receiving part of his inheritance from his father to make his fortune in Hamburg near Augusta due to being the youngest son and not in line to receive an inheritance. He bought ten acres and a little store that he enlarged. He ran it for three years and was very successful. By 1850, he had returned to Edgefield County and gained control of his father's estate which forced his brothers; Job, Jr, and Chesley to depart for Georgia and Alabama where they remained. William owned several plantations including one at Mt. Willing near Sardis Baptist Church (where he is buried) and owned many slaves whose descendants still live near Saluda. These slaves started Mt. Moses Baptist Church which is still active today.
In the 1860 South Carolina census for Edgefield Co., William has $30,000 real estate, $44,000 personal estate.
His will was administered in 1884 by Dr. John E. Padgett.
