Here is some more important information from the official Tyrone city website

The history of Tyrone is very interesting and begins before the formation of the county. This area had previously belonged to the Creek Indians until the first settlers bought their land directly from the Indians, while others got theirs from the various land lotteries that took place in the early 1800’s.

The first settlers that came here were farmers and many of these were of Irish decent, which makes it very appropriate that the town was later named Tyrone by the Railroad people. Life in the early years was much like the frontier life that is portrayed on television and the movies. The families lived in log cabins and had a life style much like that of the family on Little House on the Prairie. John Rush was one of the first settlers to come here, and when he and his neighbors took their cotton to gin, they had to go all the way to South Carolina, and this trip took nearly two weeks.

Some of the log cabins of the first settlers are still standing and many are still being used as homes. Some of them have been remodeling with siding and the dependents of the original settler built them occupy many. One of these is Loy Housten home on Briarwood Lane, which had a cotton gin behind it. Mr. Charlie Smith ran the gin. There are several more of the original log cabins still standing, and a complete list will be in The History of Fayette County, to be published in the near future.

Some of the names of the first settlers were: Rush, Harris, White, Adam, Laundrum, Ellison, Swanson, Palmer, Hobgood, Stinchcomb, Collier, McElwaney, Whitlock and many more. Some of the descendants of these still live here and probably make up more than half the crowd here today.
