Title: Tyus, Richard & Candis
Post by: chief on September 19, 2019, 04:52:00 PM
Dear Susan,

My name is Erik Murray-Knox.

My 2nd Great Grandmother and Grandfather were Richard and Candis Tyus who had been slaves on the plantation of John A Evens in Hancock County, Georgia. I was able to find this precious information thanks to your research as posted on  at http://www.kinpeople.com/Surnames.htm

I was wondering if you had any additional information about them and / or if you could point me it the right direction.

In particular, I am wondering where the surname Tyus came from. One theory is that they were acquired by Evans from a prior owner with the last name Tyus.

Any additional information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for your wonderful research.

Warm regards,

Erik Murray-Knox
