Thanks for contacting me again. I have spent the last several years trying to gather, analyze and make sense of the many mysteries and puzzles relating to the TYCER/TICER line -- an unending quest!Last fall, I wrote a paper/report/theory for a Tycer family reunion that was held in Portland Oregon.The report, entitled, "A Search for the Roots of Ellis Tycer, Rachel Stansbury and Their Elusive Children", A Theory by Lonna Jean Conroy covers research from Northumberland Co., VA forward relating to any Tycer or Ticer (and other variations of the spelling) that I could find who might be connected via Virginia, North/South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, etc. While in Oregon a cousin found additional information about Ellis at the FHC in Salt Lake City, so I have been doing re-writes to incorporate the new information. In addition, I also analyzed and compared the Revolutionary War pension applications of Ellis Tycer and Lewis Tysor (of Chatham Co., NC). I have a strong feeling that these two men are closely related.Lewis is a common name in the Tycer family that originated in Northumberland Co., VA and both Ellis Tycer and Lewis Tysor entered Revolutionary service from Halifax Co., North Carolina.The rewrites are not complete; however I would be happy to send a copy when they are finished. The purpose of the report was to gather as much information as possible in one place and then distribute it to any and all who are interested so that they can add, correct and comment.
In the meantime, I am sending an excerpt from the report (off list) that deals with Tennessee, including John Ticer/Tycer and his son, John Newton Ticer/Tycer and John Newton's son Christopher Columbus Ticer. I look forward to your reviewing this information and making comments, corrections and/or additions.I feel there is a connection of some kind between John Ticer (b 1785 VA) and Ellis Tycer (b 1756 Northumberland Co., VA); possibly John is a nephew or cousin of Ellis, but as yet I can't prove this "feeling". Circumstantial evidence is there, but a conclusion can't be reached based on the current information.I look forward to hearing from you.
