Welcome to my genealogical Web site. The surnames I will be adding to this site are: Wells, Malone, Wheatley, Boren, Martin, Tillman, Williams and their related lines. We have documented most of the information on my direct lines but other lines are added here with data supplied by other sources. Source information will be added when it is available.
Please contact me if you have personal knowledge or pictures of anyone listed on this site. You may contact me by clicking on my email address below or on the EMAIL logo at the bottom of this page.
Thanks for visiting my little home in cyberspace. Please check back soon. This is a new site and I will be adding more information as time allows.
Our Tillmans were in Upshur County, Texas by 1860. The Tillmans who were there at that time were Delilah Gage Tillman, Honor Tillman and her husband Charles Ballard, Green B. Tillman and his wife Adeline Underwood Tillman. They came to Texas from Alabama.
The Wells family traveled from Clermont County, Ohio in 1820 to Marion County, Indiana by 1830. They were in Schuyler County, Illinois by 1840 and on to Missouri by 1850. They were Texas bound when they left Missouri. My direct line lived in Sherman, Grayson County, Texas for a while but they moved on to Brown County shortly after the 1880 Federal Census was taken. Nelson Oliver settled and died in Brown County, Texas. There are several descendants remaining in the county today.
My Wheatley family were in Henderson County, Tennessee for the 1840 census. The area where they lived became Chester County when Henderson was divided in 1879. My 2nd great grandfather was apparently born in Henderson County, Tennessee and remained in that county until he left for Texas. They arrived in Ellis County, Texas between 1870 and 1880. Several descendants lived in Waxahachie all of their lives.
Descendants of Pierce
Henry Wheatley and Mary E.
My Martin line as far as I have been able to track back started with Shields B. Martin in South Carolina in 1830. His son Dickerson M. Martin or Dickinson M. Martin married Sarah Ann Francis Honea in South Carolina. They traveled with the Honea family first to Arkansas by 1870 and by 1900 were living in Brown County, Texas where they spent their remaining years.
