Prof. Ed. Tyner has son...
Arkansas City Traveler, September 26, 1877.
BORN. To Prof. Tyner, a son. This accounts for Ed’s unusual energy of late.
Ed. Tyner...
Arkansas City Traveler, March 20, 1878.

While Ed. Tyner was hauling a load of hay last Saturday, the wagon upset, and threw him and Mrs. Barlow, who was with him, to the ground with considerable force. As they struck, the pitch­fork pierced the old lady in the thigh, running through the entire flesh of the limb, and projecting on the opposite side. Mr. Tyner went to her assistance as soon as he could, and drew the fork from her. The wound is a severe one, yet she walked a distance of a mile and a half after the accident, and when last heard from was still moving about.
Mr. (?) Tyner...
Arkansas City Traveler, March 30, 1881.
In the last three weeks some ten men have left our city for Texas, with a view to purchasing cattle: James Henderson, A. M. Smythia, Jack Gilbert, Harry Guenther, Lincoln Small, the Fairclo brothers, Bill Henderson, and Messrs. Tyner and Pond.
W. H. Tyner of Indiana...
Winfield Courier, October 6, 1881.
We had the pleasure last Monday of a call from Mr. W. H. Tyner, of Morristown, Indiana, who is visiting in this county and is so pleased with it that he proposes to sell out his farm, one of the best in Indiana, and take up his residence here. He is a cousin of Gen. Tyner, late First Assistant Postmaster General, and has a son and two sons-in-law living in this county. We have room for him and a few more of the great men of the Hoosier State.
Mrs. W. H. Tyner of Indiana...

Mr. (?) Tyner...
Arkansas City Republican, December 13, 1884.
Thursday evening Louis Tournier, who has been living a secluded life on an island in the Arkansas River about five miles southeast of the city, accidentally shot himself in the left hand. He was de-capping a loaded shell when it went off. It necessitated the amputation of his hand up to his wrist. Dr. Westfall performed the operation, assisted by Dr. Mitchell. The wounded man was taken to the residence of Mr. Tyner, a near neighbor.
Charles (?) Tyner...
Arkansas City Republican, Saturday, February 14, 1885.

Several evenings since the alarm of mad dog was sounded near S. F. Endicott’s residence. Some five men gave chase to what they supposed to be a rabid canine. Some went on horseback. Mr. Endicott rode at breakneck speed to Mr. Tyner’s residence to give the alarm and to obtain Charley and his double-barrel shotgun’s assistance. Amid the cries of “Here he is,” “shoot him,” etc., the pursuers chased the dog over “hill and vale, through bramble and briar,” and finally shot him when they arrived at N. Kimmel’s residence. Now the trouble with the pursuers was to satisfy themselves that it was a mad dog. So Mr. Kimmel was made coroner and the pursuers the jury. A verdict was rendered that the dog was a dead one, and, perhaps, a mad one.
Elijah Tyner seeks divorce from wife, Anna Tyner...
Winfield Courier, Thursday, July 9, 1885.
Still are connubial ties thrown into the hopper of the mill of justice to be rent asunder.  Elijah Tyner has filed his petition with District Clerk Pate for a divorce from his wife, Anna Tyner. He charges her with combing his hair with stove wood and other weapons of torture, and guilty of other acts of extreme cruelty. It would look as though the cart was before the horse again. It’s a mighty mean woman who would treat her husband thusly. It’s an innovation and we don’t blame Elijah for kicking for freedom.
E. H. Tyner...
Arkansas City Republican, Saturday, August 15, 1885.
E. H. Tyner brings into our office a relic he obtained in the late war. It was at the siege of Vicksburg while on duty as a picket. Deserting rebels were constantly coming over to the Union forces and one of these deserters had a copy of the Vicksburg Daily Citizens, of July 2, 1863, edited by J. M. Sword. Mr. Tyner traded him a religious tract for the paper telling him it was a St. Louis Democrat, and as it was after nightfall, the trade was made without the rebel knowing he was deceived. Mr. Tyner preserved the Citizens, and after the war was over, framed it. It was printed on wall paper and is a four-column sheet. We have frequently seen the Daily Citizens of July 3, 1863, but this is the first time we ever saw a copy of July 2. C. C. Sollitt has a copy of July 3. Parties desiring to see this rare specimen of a newspaper can do so by dropping into our sanctum.
Arkansas City Republican, August 15, 1885.
E. H. Tyner tells us of several stocks of corn grown on his farm this year that have five and six ears on. He promised to bring us in a sample and leave it in our sanctum on exhibition.
Arkansas City Republican, August 15, 1885.
E. H. Tyner, a substantial farmer residing across the Walnut, started to go to Winfield Wednesday on the early morning train. On his return home on the noon train, he tells the REPUBLICAN of an accident which happened on the way up. Just as the train pulled out of Constant, one of the flues in the boiler bursted. As there was no operator at Constant, some of the passengers chartered the hand car and pumped their way up to Winfield, where word was left of the accident. A dispatch was sent to Wichita for an engine, which came at about 10 a.m. and pulled the delayed train and waiting passengers on to their journey’s end. No one was hurt.
Arkansas City Republican, August 22, 1885.
Thursday Edward Maloney sold to E. H. Tyner his resident property in the first ward on sixth street. The consideration was $1,250. Mr. Tyner is a substantial farmer who lives across the Walnut. He will move to the city in a few weeks and reside in his purchase. Howard & Collins were the sale agents.
