I knew a Lynn Tullos who worked for the PTRA Railroad in Houston.

Willoughby Tullos was a relative of James Albert Tullos, my great grandfather. Willoghby was the son of Stephen John "Righteous" Tullos and Nancy Hendricks Tullos. Stephen J. Tullos was an uncle of James Albert Tullos. That meant that James Albert's father was a brother to Stephen J. Tullos. Willoughby would have been a first cousin of James Albert. I am a firm believer that the father of my great grandfather was also James Albert Tullos who with his wife Flora (Last Maiden name unknown) and possibly had a nickname of Byrd who resided in Tyler County during the 1860 U.S. Census.

As far as being known as the best reasearcher of Tullos in Texas, I am a beginner. There are still many blanks to be filled in my research.

The information on Willoughby and Stephen J. Tullos is taken from Cosper Tullos' Book, "Tullos Sojourn" outlining the histories of Tulloses who were in Virginia about 1670's when Claudious Tullos born 1641 immigrated to the English Colonies as an indentured slave with the trade of a tanner.It does not appear that your Willoughby and the son of Stephen J. Tullos are the same, as Willoughby James II, first son of Stephen and Nancy Tullos, married Saphronia Jane Marr. To them was born a Willoughby James III who married Jimmie Cornelia Purvis. He became a County Judge of Polk County, TX. They had Willoughby Jame Tullos IV who married Mary Frances Vandiver. They had Willoughby James Tullos V(Five) who married Mesissa McGee. There is no record in Cosper's book about another Willoughby.

Why the book started out with Willoughby James Tullos II was not explained.

Hope this has cleared some of the muddy water.
