William Tyson Descendants - Grant Parish, La

Names are spelled as TYSON for this article, instead of TISON as noted
in other articles. Usage of both spellings was encountered often during
review of old records.

There were two Tysons that emigrated into the present Grant / Rapides
Parish border area in 1818. ( William and James ). Land records for
James have been found for 1837, but no further found on him. 1870
Grant Census records note an Elizabeth Tyson, age 73, living with a
Richardson family - this was probably the wife of James.

Extensive records are found for William & Sarah Vince Tyson group. At
least three brothers of Sarah Vince emigrated to this area and went on
to Texas. They were among the original Texas settlers and had extensive
land holdings in the Houston and Conroe area. This is detailed in the
1910 deposition cited.

William and Sarah settled in the Bayou Rigolette area. Their children had
extensive land holdings in the present Rock Hill area. James Edward
moved to the present Tyson Cemetery area on the Winn / Grant line.
Generation number is noted by numerical prefix.
