T.C. Hyde was born in Ireland in 1868 not that far from the Blarney Stone. He came to the US in 1888. Upon entering Castle Rock, he entered the Army and headed to CO. He fought in Cuba, China, Philippines, and in the US. In the early 1900's, he settled in MA and married. He worked on the USS Constitution and then in a munitions factory. T.C. fathered 9 children in 13 years. T.C. died when his wife was pregnant with child number 9. He died after reading a book. I'm not sure what the title was but I visited the spot where it happened. T.C. spent some time in Leavenworth, KS. He was a giant of man when standing next to his 5'3'' brother. Not sure how tall his other brother was but when you add the rope he hung from he towered over them all.

Hyde Mountain is not named after T.C. but if you visit Ireland and tell them his name the most likely answer will be all Hyde's are related.

The hike was nice and the weather was fab maybe a tad too chilly at the start. Joey was Joey and sometimes he acted like Seph. He whined about not wearing his pack correctly for about an hour. I think it had more to do with him chewing on cardboard and drinking Monster. Then he blamed it on my driving :stop: .
