Alexander, Clement, and Jehu Tyson and their mother Penelope settled this land in 1853. Theirchildren, including Willie, Joseph T., and Solomon, were born here and helped establish local churches and schools. Descendents of Willie`s five children, Oscar, Lizzie T. Gardner, Tom, Fannie T. Payne, and Will D., consider this their ancestral home andreturn to the Grove each year to renew family ties.
