Looking for any hints on who the father might be of the two above brothers. Mother was Elizabeth Johnson, not sure if that's her maiden name, but believe it is. Jacob was born 3 Jun 1816 in Asheville. Not sure if brother Henry is older or younger. Jacob Stafford changed his name to Tyson when he moved across the border to Sevier County, TN. Any reason why he may have done that would be appreciated! Thank you!

Debbie, I have been trying to find out about your Jacob Tyson for several years. My great grandfather was Jesse Carroll Tyson. Jacob was his father. I did not know the other names you mentioned, but it gives me more information than I had. In our family the story was that Jacob and his brother were orphaned when their parents died from an illness. A neighbor took the boys in and raised them. If that story is true perhaps that was the reason for the name change.
