TYLER, Jacob J., 4-22-1790 to 6-9-1873. A soldier of the War of 1812.

He, Gerald Tyler, said Quote..
" Aljearld Powers, a distant cousin of mine on
the Smelley side, took me to Jacob's grave in
the late 60's, his was the only stone, the
others about 15-20 of them, were only mounds
of dirt and rocks on both ends. This is where
we got the birth and death date,(for Jacob)
in small letters was "A soldier of the
War of 1812" below the death date. But since
then some knuckle head stole the stone to
sell as an antique, he has been arrested and
the last (1998)"

The stone has now been placed in the Oldfield Methodist Cemetery.
