...Tyrus Himes was born at Troy Bradford County Pennsylvania April 14 1818 and while living in what was then the frontier and lacking educational advantages was a man of marked intelligence and ability and was well known amonsr his associates as an exceedingly well posted man regarding current events particularly respecting all phases of farm life He became a warm friend of Owen Bush who told me in later years that whatever he had accomplished in an agricultural line and he has won several gold medals for his exhibits he owed in a great measure to father's advise and instructions.
