In Reply to: James wife Mary Sullivan by J Lynn Tullos of 1110

I am sharing some of my research so that those of you who have verifiable information may share some of yours with me -

I am visiting the county records of the areas I believe the James Tullos line lived. So far, Grimes County and Montgomery County. I live near Houston so I am going to the Geneology Library of Caroline Street in downtown Houston and I will continue. If you have some request - please email me at the address above.
The following is a timeline for James Tullos 1790-1860 according to my research thus far:

1810 - Married: Mary Sullivan - in Amite County, Mississippi

1820 – Pike County, Mississippi – listed as head of household
