In Response To: Tyson Family, 1850 Beaufort Co. NC ()
I literally stumbled upon the TYSON family,with head of household, Hosa Tyson in 1850 Beaufort Co NC-South Creek Twp. The transcription is written as LYNN. However, in the original document, it appears to be clearly TYSON, especially noted by the second Tyson family in the next household, William Tyson. It's transcribed as Tyson. I hope someone will verify what I see. I'm not trying to prove a point;I've just been trying to locate my free Tyson family for years.
It looks like TYSON to me. Also the person who abstracted for Family Search also saw it as TYSON.
