Is this a Punishment? Or Payback?

Filed under: Home History — fehlhaber @ 8:35 pm

About a hundred years ago, it was quite the thing to write and publish a family genealogy, beginning with the first Smith or Adams or Peabody to land here in the colonies.  In this case, it the first Tyler, Job Tyler, born around 1641.  Rather than doing great deeds, the first records about Job have to do with his legal problems in Andover with a Thomas Chandler.

By the time a judge ruled against him for the last time, he was penniless and no fine could be levied.  So this “apology” was posted instead.  To me, it looks like Job Tyler had the last word.

  1. Very nice! And the perfect way to procrastinate this evening. Job did have a way with words, didn’t he?
