John A. Tyson

 

Again, I’m not sure of the initials, whether it’s PW Melton (I’m pretty sure that’s what the earlier initials are) or something else entirely.  I can really only find the one Melton family in the area.

John A. Tyson also has me a little stumped.  I can find a John H. Tyson in Centre, Stanly County, NC on the 1880 census.  He was a physician.  I can also find a John Tyson of Ansonville, Anson County, NC which is fairly close.  I don’t have enough information, at this time, to made make a judgement call.

This post is part of a series of transcriptions of letters, papers, receipts, and other ephemera that are held in the Smith Family Collection.  All originals are held in this collection, unless otherwise stated.
