Your message, "I bet every Tyus in this board is related." was an old message, but I am responding regardless of that fact. I am a Tyus, and I was born in Washington, Arkansas in 1941 and raied and educated in Hope, Arkansas; every Tyus in that part of Arkansas is related. My Great Granddfather was James Tyus, and his sons were: James, Lee, Eugene, Frank, Louie, Penn, and John (all born in the 1800's). My fathers name was William Tyus, his brother was Simmie Tyus, and one sister Maude Tyus-Johnson. Lee Tyus had twio sons (John Penn and Calude Roland). Eugene had a son named Edwin Tyus that lived in the Detroit, Michigan area. There is more,that wil be revealed if this information rings a bell!
