JOHN J. TYNE has been engaged in building State roads for a number of years, with headquarters in Binghamton,
New York, and is a successful business man, known for the character of his work in New York State and in Pennsylvania.
He is a son of Patrick and Catherine (Guthrie) Tyne, who were natives of County Clare, Ireland, the father having
been engaged in railroading and farming until his death in 1894. The mother died in 1919.
John J. Tyne was born in Broome county, New York, April 10, 1870, where his education was recaived in the public
schools. He has had a long experience in constructing State highways and city streets, having engaged in the contracting
business at an early age. Until 1910 he carried on this business alone, but in that year Clarence A. Willey was
taken into partnership, and the firm of Tyne and Willey has continued to this day. Many of the State highways in
New York and Pennsylvania were built by them, and they require the services of fifty men, on an average. At first
located in the McNamara building, this firm now maintains offices in the Binghamton Savings Bank building.
Mr. Tyne is a well known member of the Knights of Columbus and Knights of the Alhambra, and in religious faith
is a communicant in St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church.
In 1897 John J. Tyne married Bridget A. Houlihan, of Susquehanna county, Pennsylvania. The five children born to
Mr. and Mrs. Tyne are: Gerald F. J., a graduate of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Troy, New York; Jerome
P., a graduate of Albany Law School, New York, 1923; Harlan E., Roger C., and John J., Jr.
