About Agnes Crump

Agnes Tyner's father, William Richard Tyner, was born about 1740 in Chowan Co., N.C. According to early newspaper chronicles, William and his first wife, Elizabeth Jane Tyner, whom he married in 1761 at Johnston Co., N.C., lived on Boyd's Creek in Elbert Co., GA. Richard was closely associated with the Cherokee Indians and family tradition evidence claims he was part Cherokee himself. Richard was absent from home when a group of Indians, probably Creek, killed his wife, Jane, dashed his baby's head against a tree and carried off his daughters, Mary and Tamar, to a Coweta town (Lower Creek Indian tribe, the Cowetas). His son, Noah, hid in a tree which was known thereafter as "Noah's Ark." (Ref: Historical Collections of Georgia, Pg. 440).

William married secondly, Agnes Dougherty, in 1779 at Wilkes Co., GA.

The children of William Richard Tyner and second wife, Agnes (Dougherty) Tyner were: 1) Frances Tyner, b. 1780 Wilkes Co., GA, d. Aft. 1840 Campbellton, Campbell Co., GA or Elbert Co., GA. 2) Elizabeth Tyner, b. 1780 Wilkes County, Georgia, d. Bet. 1860 - 1870 Pickens District, South Carolina. 3) Abigail Tyner, b. 1786 Wilkes Co., GA, d. Bet. 1856 - 1860 Franklin Co., AL. 4) Richard Tyner, b. 1788 Wilkes-Elbert Co., GA, d. Bet. 1840 - 1850 Elbert or Franklin Co., GA. 5) Agnes Tyner, b. 1790 Elbert Co., GA, d. Circa 1838/39 Franklin Co., GA. 6) Martha B. Tyner, b. 1792 Elbert C0., GA, d. 1884 Dekalb Co., GA. 7) Charity Tyner, b. 1794 Elbert Co., GA, d. Aft. 1850 Dekalb County, Georgia.

Agnes Tyner, daughter of William Richard Tyner and his second wife, Agnes (Dougherty) Tyner, married Robert Green Crump IV in 1805 in either Ebert or Franklin Co., GA. He was listed on the 1807 tax list of Bear Creek, Franklin Co., GA. The following dates and places for Robert Green Crump IV also apply to his first wife, Agnes (Tyner) Crump.

The 1811 property tax list of Captain Purcells District of Franklin Co., GA contains the name Robert Crump III (1745-1823) and several of his sons including, John D. Crump, Richard Lane Crump, Robert Green Crump, Jr. (IV) and Silas Crump. They were living in close proximity to each other.

An 1818 property tax list of Captain Akins District, Franklin Co., GA contains the name Robert Green Crump, Jr. (IV) living adjacent to his brother, Richard Lane Crump.

Robert G. Crump, Jr. (IV), a farmer, and his family were enumerated in the 07 Aug 1820 US Census of Christian, Ebert Co, GA. There were only 3 people in the household, e. g. Robert Green Crump and his wife, Agnes (Tyner) Crump, both listed in the age range of 16 to 25 which was inaccurate. There was only one child in the household, a female listed in the age category of "Under 16". This was Martha Crump who was born in 1808. NOTE: The inscription of "South Carolina" on Martha's tombstone as her birth place is incorrect. According to the 1850 US Census for DeKalb County, Alabama and the 1860, 1870 and 1880 US Censuses for Etowah County, Alabama her birthplace was "Georgia". In addition, as noted above, her parents were married in Georgia in 1805. A disclaimer has been added to her memorial exposing this error.

The 1823 property tax list of Bear Creek, Captain Tabors District, Franklin Co., GA contains the name of Robert Crump, Sr. (III) and his sons, Robert Green Crump, Jr. (IV) and Richard Lane Crump with adjacent land holdings.

The 1827, 1828, 1829 and 1832 property tax lists of Bear Creek, Captain Mills District, Franklin Co., GA contains the name Robert Green Crump, Jr. with a total of 1138 acres.

The 1830 US Census of Franklin County, GA enumerated Robert G. Crump, Jr. (IV) and his family.

Robert G. Crump was appointed Post Master in the 25th Dist. of Franklin Co., GA on 19 Jul 1832 through 25 Jul 1833. He was also reportedly Justice of Franklin Co., GA Inferior Court, 1837-41.

The 1840 US Census of Ebert Co., GA enumerated the family of Robert G. Crump. Just from this record, it appears that his wife, Agnes (Tyner) Crump, may have died prior to 1840 as there was no female listed in her age range.

The following speculation about the fate of Robert's first wife, Agnes (Tyner) Crump, is based on published Crump family tradition since there are no records so far that give us her exact fate. The story goes that Agnes Tyner was the daughter of William Richard Tyner (b. 1738 in Chowan Co., N.C. - d. 1824 Elbert Co., GA), who was part Cherokee Indian (the Tyner surname was common among the Cherokees at the time). William Tyner was a Revolutionary War soldier who fought in the Wilkes Co. GA, Battle of Kettle Creek in Feb. 1779, the last battle of the war. Again, according to family tradition, prior to the 1840 US Census unknowable family dynamics caused Robert Green Crump, Jr. (IV) to "force Agnes out of his household and into an untraceable fate with the Cherokees about the time of the inhumane 'Trail of Tears' (1838-1839)". The Tyner family's simple theory offered for this cruel action by Robert states that he wanted to marry a younger woman, which he did. We do know from the will of William Richard Tyner, probated on 10 Nov 1824 in Elbert Co., GA, that he mentioned his daughter, Agnes Crump, and his granddaughter, Nancy Tyner, who was "given and bequeath one of my colts for her to take choice". In fact, Nancy Tyner, signed the will. Nancy Tyner married Robert Green Crump IV as his second wife on 16 Jan 1846 in Elbert Co., GA and died about 1870 in Franklin County, GA.
