Researching Ellis TYCER who appears in Dickson County, TN Census records (1820-1840). He is listed on a monument honoring the Revolutionary War soldiers buried in Dickson County. This monument stands on the front lawn of the Charlotte Courthouse (Dickson Cty seat). I have information from his depositions for pension (all made in Dickson Cty, Nashville, TN) that he was born in North Umberland Cty, Virginia; entered the NC Militia several times (Halifax Cty NC); fought with General Greene at Guilford Courthouse (NC). Ellis TYCER was French.
Two sons have been proven: Lewis Tycer (b 10 May 1806, Dickson Cty, TN; d Oregon) and Allen TYCER (b 1815 probably Dickson Cty, TN). From Dickson Cty. marriage records the names Letticia TYCER (b 1810-1819) and Louisa TYCER (b 1820 TN) are found. It is believed, although not proven, that these are daughters of Ellis TYCER. Letticia TYCER married John W. RAGAN in 1838; Louisa TYCER married Thomas M. WHEELER in 1841.
Any information anyone can add will be greatly appreciated!
