Re: Augustin Ticer / Dowdy census research

In Reply to: Augustin Ticer / Dowdy census research by ken of 218

Hi Ken,

No census data, but here are some leads.

According to some handwritten family notes, Israel, Jordon, Dennis, Louis, Austin, Gabriel, Gideon, Augustine, Austin, Frances, Rose and Violet were all siblings.

Family notes also show that Augustine & Lucy Dowdy Ticer (Tyzer, Tiser or whatever) had five children: Rachel, Jane "Jennie", Uriah, Parsons and Allen H. Rachel Dowdy was prob. not by Augustine.

In the Cincinnati City Directory 1829 is a Mrs. Lucy Ticer, a weaver. (Perhaps Augustine had died by then if this is the same one.)

In the Cincinnati City Directory 1831, Trish and Parsons Ticer, boards at Jane Youngs in the Cincinnati City Directory 1836 is John Tyson, boards at Mrs Ann Coopers.

Sue Ashby's Orphan Courts Indentures from Chatham of Nov., 1796 Pg. 220 - Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions- 1774-1800:
SAMUEL COX , to whom AUGUSTINE TYSER was bound is permitted by the court, to give up the indenture of the said AUGUSTINE, who is rebound to GABRIEL TYSER, to learn the trade of a Taylor.

[note: Lucy Dowdy m. Augustine Tyser. Note also that there was a QUAKER SAMUEL COX family of the area who later ended up in Hamilton Co., OH, but that the Ticer name does not appear on any Quaker records.

A Cox family researcher, Jerry Richmond, had this to say recently:

"The most likely individual that your ancestor was involved with was a Samuel Cox born in 1760, Orange co, NC, son of Solomon Cox. We don't know for certain where he lived as he & his family removed to Ohio in 1808.... I would imagine that your Ticer was under the control of the Orphan's Court until he was 18. On that basis I would guess his date of birth as 1778. The Samuel Cox I mentioned was about 36 in 1796 so he is a reasonably likely candidate, assuming your guy was apprenticed to him for only 2 or 3 years. I gather that you have not yet located an Orphans Court Record that placed him with Cox in the first place."

You need to find this IF it has survived. Look in Orange, Chatham, Randolph,
and possibly Rowan County in that order.]

Also, from History of Miami Co Ohio 1880 by Beers page 796 Bigraphical Sketches a Hiram Tisor b in 1812 the son of Austin Tisor a native of England, Austin's father immigrated to America when Austin was only 1 month old, landing in Charleston SC.

Wonder if this Austin is the same family.
