Tyler, Andrew (1692-1741)
Born in Boston, the son of Thomas Tyler, Andrew began his apprenticeship at an early age, the exact date being unknown.

Tyler, George (1740-1785)
There is little information available on the life of George Tyler. He was born about 1740, and, according to one source, is believed to have carried on t he business of his grandfather, Andrew Tyler after the later died in 1741. Since George was only a year old at that time, it seems more likely that someone else carried on his grandfather's business, at least until George became a freeman about 1761.

Waugh, Frederick Judd (1861-1940) View 3 Items
In 1861, Frederick Judd Waugh had the benefit of being born into an artistic family; his father, Samuel B. Waugh, was a noted portrait painter, and his mother, Mary Eliza Young, a miniature painter. With such a background, it should come as no surprise that both Frederick and his half-sister Ida grew up to be artists, a future prophesied by his father who once told him, "Freddy, you will never make a businessman. You will do much better as an artist." That encouragement led to...
