Jennifer Butler I am David Tyree's daughter, Jennifer. I think my dad had said our ancestry was in Virginia. There are many Tyree's here. I don't typically do ancestry searches, but just happened to look up my grandmother' name (Vonnie Virginia) to see what came up and found this. I know my dad had done quite a bit of work before he passed. I have some photos that I can offer when I find some time. I would love to delve further myself for my children. I'm so thrilled to find these photos and this information. I thought it was lost.
