Did your Tyree's marry into Walden families while still in the South?
While I have no Tyree's, I do have Walden's that migrated into Ross County, Ohio in the mid-1820's. And I do have a Martha or Mary Ann Tary/Tyre who married a Macklin Cordell in a collateral line.
Mack Cordell & Martha Tyre were married 22 Jun 1848 in Gallia County, Ohio. They both have VA listed as their birth location. Martha who died 1923 in Clark County, Ohio has as parent's via her death certificate listed as Alexander & Anna Tyree and their birth locations are VA also.
Martha lived to be over 100 years of age so her parents were probably born in the late 1790's or vary early 1800's.
