Hi John,

Perhaps you have discovered this by now, but part of the trouble in researching the Tullous name is that it was "Tullos" a few generations back. Be sure to check for that name (here and elsewhere).

i can tell you some about John Columbus "Lum" Tullous.
b. January 12, 1867 in Polk County, Texas
d. February 14, 1942 in Robertson Co., TX (near Wheelock)

Married first, on December 22, 1889 to Nannie Allen: January 28, 1873 - March 22, 1962

Married second to Pearl Reynolds.

According to my Tullous cousin in Oklahoma, "Lum could fight like a circular saw."

All those Tullous boys were rowdy. :-)

*** *** ***

John Columbus "Lum" Tullous' father was , Anslum N. Tullous (my great-great grandfather), but you will find Anslum's his first and last name spelled many ways.

Anslum N. Tullous
b. June 04, 1840 in Mississippi
d. April 08, 1922 in Robertson Co., TX (Wheelock Cemetery)

Married on July 13, 1865 in Corrigan, TX to Martha Merchant:
March 24, 1845 (MS)-May 17, 1928 (Robertson Co., TX - Wheelock Cemetery)

They had 9 kids and took in 3 orphans: Vinsant, Oxford and Brown were orphans who lived with the family. The 9 kids included:
1. John Columbus "Lum" Tullous

2. James Willoby "Tobe" Tullous (my great-grandfather, b. June 27, 1868 in Polk Co., TX; d. October 27, 1949 in Marshall, TX; Buried Ft. Worth, TX (Mt. Olivet Cemetery)
married on October 22, 1891 in Robertson County, TX to Nancy Lea Arnett (April 09, 1874-January 31, 1944)

The other 7 children were: William Berry Tullous, Robert Lee Tullous, Marcus Washington Tullous, Louella Tullous, Daniel Webster Tullous (grandfather of my Oklahoma cousin), Minda Pearl Tullous and Annie Bell Tullous.

Marcus Washington Tullous married Mary Della Allen, who was the sister of Nannie Allen (wife of John Columbus "Lum" Tullous). Nannie and Mary Della's parents were Jack D. Allen and Mary E. Arnett. Nancy Lea Arnett (wife of James Willoby "Tobe" Tullous) was 1st cousin of Nannie & Mary Della, because Mary Mary E. Arnett's brother, Thomas Valentine Arnett was Nancy Lea's father.

During the Civil War, Anslum N. Tullous served in the 6th Texas Cavalry, Company A - CSA. He enlisted on May 2, 1861. Horse value $160.00; equipment $140.00

You'll find him listed as "Tullos, Anselm N" here:

*** *** ***

Anslum N. Tullous' father was A. Willoughby Tullous.
b. 1815 in MS (maybe in Pike?)
d. in Jones Prairie, Polk County, TX (date unknown)

Married sometime before 1839 in MS to Lucinda VanZandt (1823in MS-about 1870).

Had 9 children: James B. Tullous, Anslum N. Tullous, Marion Tullous, Sarah "Sary" Ann Tullous, Amanda Tullous, Louisa Tullous, Martha Jane Tullous, Ellen Tullous and Anna "Texana" Tullous.

Also, 1850 census shows that J. J. Dillard, who was a schoolteacher, boarded with the family in Polk Co., TX.

1870 census shows Brown VanZandt lived with them. (Perhaps Lucinda's father? but unknown)

A. Willoughby Tullous married a second time on December 10, 1875 to Mrs. Josephine Smith. They had one child, Amanda.

U.S. Census Polk County Texas 1880:
Willoby Tulles - M- Age 64
Josephine Tulles - F - Age 33
Amanda - F - Age 2

A. Willoughby Tullous may (or may not) be this soldier:
5 Tullos, A.W.
Confederate Infantry
1st Battalion, Mississippi Infantry (State Troops) (12 months, 1862-63), Company C

*** *** ***
At this point, you will have better luck searching the Tullos forum.

*** *** ***
A. Willoughby Tullous' father was James Tullous, who appears to be the one who added the second U to the spelling.

There are so many Tullous/Tullos men with the names Willoughby and James that it can be a nightmare sorting them out.

THIS James Tullous/Tullos died in 1860 in Oakville, Live Oak, TX and was married on July 18, 1810, in Amite Co., MS to Mary Sullivan.

*** *** ***

James Tullous/Tullos's parents were Willoughby Tullos & Anna (Ann) Mills who married in Duplin Co., NC.

*** *** ***

Willoughby Tullos' parents were Richard Tullos & Elizabeth Barrett.

*** *** ***

Richard Tullos' parents were John Tullos & Barbara Mason.

*** *** ***

John Tullos' parents were Claudius "Cloud" Tullos, Sr. & Sarah Rodham.

When last i looked into this line around 10 years ago, some of the Tullos info was being hotly debated, here and on rootsweb. One major source is:
"The Colonial Genealogist" [973 B2cg], an article entitled TULLOS OF VIRGINIA; Part 1 is in Volume VI, Number 4, Page 551-556; Part 2 is in Volume VII, Number 1, Page 675-684; both dated 1974 and written by C.D. Cochran (5889 MacLeod Drive, Memphis, TN 38138)

Good luck with all of it!
