In Reply to: Paul Tye 1880 KS by John Reed of 615

John, we have communicated before re. this family. I have found no further information regarding the search for Ida and the Cox/Leach conncections. But I do have some thoughts about Paul Tye that I may not have mentioned before.
As far back as I can find, there was no Paul Tye listed in the family. But there are many mistakes on census reports and I am fairly sure that in this case the name Paul was really that of Pal Tye, who was born Pallas Love Tye in Kentucky in 1851 (according to his death certificate). He was the son of Henry Harrison Tye and was a cousin of Julia's.
Julia's father was Wiley Tye who was a foster brother of Henry Harrison Tye. Actually there probably was not a blood relationship but they were foster cousins.
The records of Pal Tye that we have are scarce during these years before he married in 1884. It is possible that he found a place to live with Julia, who was single, and her daughter where he could help her with chores, etc. and she could help him financially. Lois
