Sally TYLER, spouse of Alexander GORHAM c1830

Recently I've had some good luck about my ancestor, Sally TYLER GORHAM. From an old book written to commemorate her nephew, John W. TYLER'S, 100th birthday, I have discovered Sally's birthdate: 20 September 1777. This date is a little later than I had previously learned from Putnam Co. sources and significant because Sally's parents marriage date was: 15 August 1774 in Loudoun Co., VA. An earlier birthdate had placed her born before the marriage and cast doubt on who was her mother.

For this new information I am indebted to Gloria Tyler Taylor, who read my note on the Fayette Co., KY GenForum and generously shared her data. The book, now called "The Old Tyler Book," was published privately 1888 - 1893 from family bible records, other written documents and conversations with Benj. G. TYLER, John W.'s youngest brother. The book is about John W. TYLER'S family, starting with his grandparents, William TYLER and Letty GEORGE.

I interested in finding any information on Sally's brother, George TYLER, b. 26 April 1797 in Fayette Co., KY. He married Elizabeth Ann Brown 29 September 1819 in Fayette Co., KY. By 1832 he resided in Hendricks Co., IN when he wrote a letter to his brother, Benjamin, in Kentucky. George TYLER'S sister, Sally TYLER GORHAM, lived in neighboring Putnam Co., IN.

If anyone could give me a lookup on the 1850 Henrdricks Co., IN Census I'd be grateful. I'd like to know if George and Elizabeth had any children and is so their names and dates.

Happy to share more!
