Book Notice: 15 Generations of American Stories: Notable Descendants of Immigrant Job Tyler

I received this information from reader Norman Tyler:


This is to inform you I have just published a narrative history of the extended family of immigrant Job Tyler, who arrived in Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1638. Titled 15 Generations of American Stories: Notable Descendants of Immigrant Job Tyler, the book includes 9,000 Tyler persons and 35 biographies of “notable” Tylers. The back cover includes the following description:

"Over fifteen generations, the extended family of immigrant Job Tyler has included many notable individuals. Included are 35 biographies collected from five eras of American history. Stories include Mary Sawyer Tyler, whose lamb was honored in a very popular poem; Joseph Tyler, victim of a murder onboard by Caribbean pirates; Comfort Tyler, accused of being a traitor in the Aaron Burr Conspiracy; Mary Tyler, who lived for her entire life burdened by accusations at the Salem Witch Trials; Moses Coit Tyler, a distinguished academic who established the first national historical organization; two Tyler Civil War generals and heroes serving for both Union and Confederate armies; and relatives of three different United States presidents, none being President John Tyler.”

The book can be ordered on Amazon - see
