b. 14 April 1818, d. 24 April 1879
     Troy, PA, was a frontier settlement when Tyrus was born there. He was apprenticed to shoemaking at age 15, including harness-making, tanning and currying. A cut on his knee complicated with rheumatism confining him in bed that leg becoming stiffened in the knee joint and set at nearly a right angle in the knee. He toured Southern States for his health in 1845, spending a winter with a brother on a sugar plantation at Bayou LaForche, 80 miles south of New Orleans in LA. The next spring he went to Rock Island, IL on the Upper Mississippi River; thence to Chicago; went next to Lafayette, Stark Co., IL and located on a land claim six miles from Toulon in Stark Co., then returned to Bradford Co., PA, home.

In the spring he and wife, Emeline and one child moved (1847) to his claim near lafayette, IL, and there engaged in farming and his shoe trade in town. March 21, 1853, he and his family joined a "covered wagon" train immigrating to the N.W. Pacific Coast, led by James Biles from KY. Himes' destination was Monmouth, Polk Co., Oregon, where a colony of his friends had bone in 1852 to found an educational institution. Their caravan stopped October 21, 1853 at the home of David Chambers, four miles east of Olympia, Washington Territory.

A published genreal description of this pilgrimage shows courage and human qualities of these pioneers worthy of emulation by any generation. Tyrus settled November 9, 1853 on 350 acres one mile further east, where his family remained until the Indian War in 1855, his and heighbors' families taking shelter in block houses until peace, returning to the farm in March 1857.

He engaged in his trade in Olympia, returning week-ends to his family on the farm until 1863, thereafter remaining home until his death. His unfailing industry left his family an ideal farm home.

In 1884 Emeline returned by railroad train for a visit to her brother, Cyrus, in clark Co., IA; to kin at Elmira, Chemung Co., NY and Bradford Co., PA, whre she met over 300 relatives, next returning to her home, then in Portland, OR.
