In the 1830 Census he was in McNairy County, Tennessee, age category 30-40 years.
In the 1840 Census he was in Tishomingo County, Mississippi.
He married about 1818 probably, before his first child WILLIAM H. TYNER, Jr., was born about 1819.
He probably died before 1850 because he is not found in any 1850 census.
I come from his son JOHN WILEY TYNER,
He was born 2 Apr 1827 in Benton County, Tennessee.
He married Lucinda Barnes on 8 Dec 1847 in Benton County, Tennessee.
