Jesse Tyler, former North Manchester resident, died at the home of his adopted son, Earl Tyler, at Huntington Sunday evening about 8:30. Death was caused by infirmities of old age, as he would have been 90 years old February 28. Mrs. Tyler passed away about a year ago. The funeral and burial will be held at Huntington Tuesday afternoon.

Mr. Tyler lived most of his life in North Manchester and for many years was associated with the late Aaron Ulrey in lumbering and other business enterprises. They owned and operated the Ulrey & Tyler saw mill for many years, and also erected a number of business rooms. Later other interests bought the lumber company, and Mr. Tyler had disposed of most of his other holdings in North Manchester. Mr. and Mrs. Tyler had no children, but adopted two, Earle Tyler, and Mrs. Oscar Weberg of Illinois.

Mr. Tyler was one of the few remaining veterans of the 47th Indiana regiment that served during the Civil war. Several companies of that regiment were from North Manchester and Liberty Mills.
