Tylerite (inhabitant of Tyler)

“Tylerite” is the name of an inhabitant of Tyler, Texas. The name “Tylerite” has been cited in print since at least 1880.
Wikipedia: Tyler, Texas
Tyler is a city in and the county seat of Smith County, Texas, in the United States. It takes its name from President John Tyler. The city had a population of 109,000 in 2010, according to the United States Census Bureau. Tyler is the principal city of the Tyler Metropolitan Statistical Area, with a population of 209,714 in 2010, and the regional center of the Tyler-Jacksonville combined statistical area, with a population of 260,559 in 2010.
Tyler has the nickname “Rose Capital of the Nation”. It gained this name due to the large quantity of rose bushes processed through the area, along with hosting America’s largest rose garden.
In 1985, the international Adopt-a-Highway movement originated in Tyler when, after appeals by local Texas Department of Transportation officials, the local Civitan chapter adopted a 2-mile (3-km) stretch of U.S. Highway 69. Tyler is also home to the Caldwell Zoo and Broadway Square Mall.
