If you are still seeking, I may have happened upon something which will help you ID your Frances Tyler Degraff.
I have been trying to help someone on another group of Tylers and ran across some old notes – it’s not going to come together in a neat little package, but I think you should look at the ***F B Tyler*** in the 1870 census below and see if you can confirm or rule out a connection.There are lots of errors, including the fact that this child is listed as male, not female, but I think it could be her.
