In Reply to: Samuel Ticer & Alice Revier, b. 1808, VA by Robert B. Casey of 218

There is so much folklore on our side. My aunt said that they remember a farm in Tipton county that my gg-grandmother and her husband lived on. Supposedly it was a "harem"/ red light district home. This I recently found out. When my grandmother died---she had some information in her "Cedar Lane" trunk that was never seen until now. I guess our family was contacted in the 1970's by a Letha Blackard and was trying to establish a connection. She wrote an extensive journal on the "Ticer Family." Over the past year or two it has become public info. It is housed in Texas. I also bought the book of the "Tysors of Old Chatham"

We think we are connected in with LEWIS TYSOR. He thought Charles Ticer was some sort of kin. It was stated that THOMAS TYSOR (brother of Lewis & Charles) went to Arkansas---no further record "excerpt from The Tysors of Old Chatham"

G.W. Ticer is possibly a brother of WILLIAM ANDREW JACKSON TICER. John H. Ticer & Christopher Columbus Ticer are believed to be cousins of William Andrew Jackson Ticer. John Henry Ticer had a child named Charles R Ticer. According to the letters William Albert had a brother named GEORGE and these 2 comprised the TICER'S in Tipton County, TN.

In one of the letter's of have that was written from Alexandria, VA in NOV. 13, 1956-----stated that ________ Ticer (I can't understand the signature---which I think it is either Louis, John, Charles, Edmond) was the 7th son of LEWIS TICER---- born. VA 1814 (Heathville Northumberland County) and died in ALEXANDRIA, VA in 1877. Supposedly there is a family bible stating that LEWIS had 11 CHILDREN. There is more info in the letter stating the grandfather Lewis had either 7 brothers-----one went to Washington, DC----the other located in Baltimore, MD there names were WILLIAM and JOHN. THIS IS POSSIBLY OUR WILLIAM AND JOHN.

I don't know HOW we are connected to Hugh Clark Ticer & SARAH CAROLINE RORIE.

Recently I have been told about a William Albert Ticer that had 2 BROTHERS named Johnny and Charlie (Nicknames I suppose for John and Charles) there family still lives in Millington, TN. This William Albert Ticer had KIDS named LOUIS & HAROLD----which I have heard about these Ticer's but was told we were of no KIN. I know that TICER is a family name and I am trying to get all facts straight because of the clear fact of MY BROTHERS, MY DADS, MY GRANDFATHERS, MY GREAT GRANDFATHERS name and on and on.

I do know some of where William's kids are. As you know of course, Ark and Tenn is prevelant. Virginina also has some of that same line. I think Texas and Louisiana does too. I also have information stating they came by way of a "flat boat". Supposedly there are some "Black Ticer's" left over fro the civil war also. Do you know anything about that? I do hope we can piece this together.

I make it home 1 -2 times a year. My family still lives there and can also help us if needed. I think William's family is right under our noses in Millington, Tennessee, Drummonds, Tennessee, and Memphis, Tennessee. This is where I am trying to figure who is who. It is so CONFUSING!!!

It definitely seems that we need to get all this straight. I wanted to be a member of the DAR and Friends of General Lafayette here in DC but without connecting it I can't. Not to mention I am such a NOVICE AT ALL THIS. Well LeighAnn I appreciate everything and hope you and I stay strong on the trail and figure it out. Feel free to call, write, email, ETC.
