The profile link below is to my known direct ancestor - Ansyl William Tryon Tryon-349 who died in Buffalo in 1943 and not Alexander William Tryon the subject of this request. Unless by a strange twist they turn out to be the same person! (A possibility I have not ruled out.) I have not created a profile for Alexander on wikitree. I know too little about him. What I do know comes from one record, the only one I have found.
Details on the parentage of my Ansyl William Tryon are very limited and I have not traced with much certainty anything of his life before wedlock. He was married to Jane Stephenson in the 1890s (though I find no record of the marriage), She died 1929 and they are buried together in the Buffalo area.
Some months ago I found through familysearch.org the record of an Alexander William Tryon in NYC, 1906.
The details of these two entries appear to be two separate extractions of the same event data.
This marriage record or license 4 Jun 1906 gives as names of Alexander's parents Ansel Tryon and Roxy Herrick, and birth in Binghamton.
My original and hopeful hypothesis is that this man may be a brother of my ancestor Ansyl who was also supposed to have been born in Binghamton.
The record for Alexander is perhaps the best clue I have to finding anything further on the family of my Ansyl who according to his death record had a father Ansel, and whose mother's maiden name was Herrick.
Unfortunately, beyond the specific record of this marriage event or marriage license - which I have only seen as an index/extraction - I have never found any other record for this Alexander.
This leads me to speculate that Alexander and Ansyl could be the same person - a bit shady to say the least. Ansyl is already married, but Buffalo City directory entries lead me to believe there was a period where he was not with his family in the period in question (circa 1906), though he definitely returned at some point. (He also had a stint in jail several years later.)
Though I never find anythng else on Alexander William Tryon - neither census nor death, I did find later records I believe are of the same woman who was to be the bride, but she is not with him. Perhaps the marriage was never performed or didnt last or was annulled. Her name is Maria Cecillia Person Stendahl. If I traced the right person she died in Chicago in the 1950s.
