|Tirey family from Mitchell, IN, Lawrence Co. |
William and Henry Tirey, Tyrie, Tyree were Brothers and came from England. Guessing in the early to mid 1700's. Settling in and around Wilkes Co. NC.
Grandson of William, Thomas Tirey Moved to Mitchell, IN where he bought acres from a black civil war vetren whom obtained the land for fighting in the war. That was 1833.
The last remaining 40 acres has been passed down through 5 generations since and will be 6 someday. Let's not make that too soon, mom. OK?
