Captain Thomas Lytle Headstone

Thomas Lytle served several tours in the American Revolution.  He was a captain in Brevard’s North Carolina Legion and was present at King’s Mountain, although he did not fight in the battle.  He died 31 March 1835 and is buried at Bethel UMC-Old Cherry Springs Cemetery in Old Fort, North Carolina.  He was my 5th great-grandfather.

I think my boyfriend is related to you! I was doing research, looking up Captain Lytle and found your page! This is very exciting news. I’ll be sure to share this info with my boyfriend’s mother who told us about Captain Lytle..I think she has a reproduction of a portrait of him. Drop me an email!

Hi Linda, nice to hear from you! I would love to have a picture of of Thomas Young Lytle and Eliza Ann Burgin Lytle. I’m actually related to each of them independently. I don’t have any Lytle pictures at this time. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a picture of Captain Thomas Lytle.

Thanks for commenting!
