HENRY HOWELL TYE
BIRTH Henry seems to have been born in Tennessee, Dec. 10, 1798 to Elizabeth "Betsy" Tye daughter of John Granger Tye and Elizabeth. Henry's father's identity remains unknown. He had many siblings, some of whom may have been half brothers and sisters, all surnamed Tye. These included in part, Susan, John "Jack" Foster, William "Billy Blow", Elizabeth, and Hiram Speed.
MARRIAGE He was married about 1817-1820 to Sarah "Sallie" Mayes in Knox or Whitley County, Ky. Sarah "Sallie" was the daughter of William Mayes /Mays and Obedience Terrell.
CHILDREN Henry and "Sallie" had the following children:
Obedience was born about 1819 if the 1860 Census of Daviess County, Missouri is correct. She married William Isbell and had at least the following children:Mary Ann Isbell and Susan Isbell. She later was divorced from Isbell and had returned with her two daughters to live with her mother at the time of the 1860 Census of Daviess County, Missouri.
Elizabeth Tye was born September 4, 1823-1826 and married Christopher Haun. She died August 8, 1892.
Susan Ann Tye was born October 7 or 12, 1824 or 1827 near Williamsburg, Kentucky. Susan married Henry Harrison Tye March 10, 1841 in Kentucky. She and Henry had the following children: Sarah Catherine, William Brown, Henry Purl, Lucy Jane, Palace Napoleon, Franklin Jefferson and Mary. She was divorced from Henry and married, later in life to John Rutledge. She died June 3, 1908 and is buried in the Capp's Cemetery in Harrison, Arkansas.
Mary Ann "Polly" Tye was born about 1828. She married John R. Evans on August 6, 1845 in Whitely County, Ky. Their children were Harriet Ann, Sarah A.,William Sims, Judah A.(Died as infant), Mary Ann, Lucretta A., Henry C, (Died as child) and Josephine F.
Pallas Napoleon Tye was born in about 1833-34 in Whitley County, Kentucky. This is the time he would have been born according to the 1850 Census of Whitley County, Ky.He married Susan Frances Duncan February 15, 1860. He and Frances had the following children: Sally, Talilhia, Ludlow, Mollie, Mathew A., Lucy, Katie, Robert, and Hattie. He died November 11, 1896.
Henry C. Tye was born December 18, about 1838 in Whitley County, Kentucky. He was possibly married to Mary Ann Lee on December 11, 1859. No record has yet been discovered of Henry C. Tye after the 1860 Census of Daviess County where he was listed as living with his mother when about 23 years of age. If he had married Mary Ann Lee in 1859 it is not know the reason she was not listed with him on that census.
Ludlow Edison or Edison Ludlow or Edward L. was born about 1840 in Kentucky, according to the 1850 Census of Whitley County, Ky. and the 1860 Census of Daviess County, Mo. There is a son listed as Edward L. Tye, in the 1850 Census and presumably this is the same son as there are no other's listed that would seem to fit. After the 1860 Census he seems to have disappeared.
LOCATIONS It is not certain where Henry Howell started life but it probably was in Green or Hawkins County,Tennessee. This is where the John Granger Tye family had been living before coming to Kentucky. His mother, Betsy had moved to the Williamsburg area of Kentucky along with her father and brothers and he was living there most of his life.
DEATH There is a story that Henry Howell Tye, went on a cattle drive from Kentucky to Atlanta, Georgia in 1846. The family notes say he left and never returned. But there is a more complete story telling that Henry was murdered on this trip. He supposedly had a partner, Sam Beams who went with Henry but returned from that trip alone, with a signed deed that he now owned Henry's property. Sam Beams was the husband of Joshua Tye's daughter, Rebecca (Betsy) Tye b. 1821. Henry is said to have died November 1, 1846 possibly in Georgia. All of this may be misconstrued or even completly untrue. But it is certain that Henry did not return from this trip.
FURTHER INFORMATION Hopefully more details can be added of Henry's life in the future.
