moter Arkansas 1800s Arkansas family legend

My mother tell us that our family was owned by the 10th president of the united states. We have several relatives named after him. Funny enough anyone with the same last name of my mother's maiden and come from Arkansas they also know who the 10th president of the united states is because it's rare for people to know who he is. Who is he? Can you guess without googling? I'll give you a hint. My mother's maiden name is Tyler.
