  • Notes 
    • also raised nephew John Taylor;

      1830 census has William Tyson in District 2 of Cecil County, MD at age 40-50; 1 male age 10-15; 1 male age 20-30; 1 female under 5; 1 female age 15-20; 1 female age 40-50 (Township: District 2 Series: M19 Image: 74 Roll: 56 Sheet: 40)

      1840 census has William Tyson in District 2 of Cecil County, MD at age 50-60; 1 female under 5; 1 female age 20-30; 1 female age 60-70

      from http://www.chesco.org/DocumentCenter/View/12215:

      Chester County Tax Exonerations 1850 - 1865
      Last Name First Name Township Year Reason for discount
      Tyson William Kennett 1860 Left
      Tyson William Pennsbury 1860 Deceased

      White John Kennett 1860 Left

      It looks like John White, his wife Jane (Tyson) White, and Jane's father William were living in Kennett then moved to Pennsbury where William died (after the 1860 census was taken on 2 August 1860).
