Tullis Genealogy

Welcome to this web page of information about Tullis genealogy!  I hope to make this a repository for information about any of our Tullis ancestors that other family tree researchers might find interesting or useful.  Examples include compiled genealogies, obituaries, Bible records, census records, photos, etc.
