Pam It's very nice to hear from you. I cannot tell you the origin of his first name, in fact many US christian names are unusual to us English! To find out more about Tyre, I suggest you contact my cousin Charles Narramore of Diana, Texas on Canarra@aol.com as he knows more than almost anybody about the US branch. You won't get a reply straight away as I was with him last night. He and his wife are in England and attended the Northmore/Narramore gathering in Plymouth on Saturday.
