Family legend had that Orren Tysor came over with his sons to Cape Fear, NC, to fight on the side of the United States with Lafayette. His son Lewis was a Revolutionary War veteran. I do not know of what happened to the other two sons.

A book compiling those records was produced by a relative called "The Tysors of Old Chatham County". My ancestor Harris Tysor (Lewis son) is in their along with his three wives on more than 15 children. My great-grandmother Sarah Ann Tysor is listed but no her husband Augustus Pharr Davis nor my grandmother Nannie May Davis. Any help in confirming some of this data, which spans from North Carolina to South Georgia would be greatly appreciated.
