Descendants of William "Walking Billy" Tyler

Recently, I was working with another Tyler cousin who was using yDNA to verify family connections when I found a couple of references to William "Walking Billy" Tyler as a patriarch in his line. This persons "brick wall" was Henry Tyler who wed Malinda Earp - and this Henry is linked to William by several "sources".

These "sources" are Find-A Grave memorials 58990548, 115055809, and a DAR application reference from the 1950's - which are referenced in family trees and records on the other popular sites.

Unfortunately, the children listed on the application, and linked on the Find-A-Grave memorials, were all born in Georgia - and "Walking Billy" Tyler raised his family in Kentucky.

The results of the yDNA test show a very close connection to John R. Tyler (Tyler-2877), who had Henry Tyler (Tyler-1467) husband of Malinda Earp, as a brother to John's great, great grandfather.

Another site has William "Walking Billy" Tyler descendants, and there is no connection to the "Georgia" Tyler family.

Eddie King listed references to another print article and he misunderstood a comment I made to his listing. It was not my intent for him to remove his answer with the additional reference citations.
Thanks!
