About Orren Tysor

Orren Tysor was said, by family legend, to have come over from Portugal with Lafayette. His son Lewis was apparently born in what became the U.S. shortly after his arrival. Orren is said to have been married to a French woman. He was dark, dark enough that in that section of Cape Fear, NC, they were known as the Black Tysors. Pictures of the family taken around the Civil War show them to be of dark Latino complexion.

Tysors of Chatham County.
