I am looking for information regarding the Josiah Tyson family. I am a descendant of his son Dawson P. Tyson, who died in Richmond, Virginia in 1864. He left a wife, Rebecca, and four children including my great-grandfather Uriah Dawson Tyson.
The family left for Mississippi in the 1870's and settled in Olive Branch and Memphis. Rebecca was said to have come from Moore county but I have little info on her. She was born 1819/20 and probably married Dawson around 1849. The 1850 census for Moore County has them with one infant son, William. I would like to learn more about Rebecca and would greatly appreciate any help offered.
