I am Carlisle Messlin's great-great grandaughter. I'm not
certain when he moved to Selma Township (now Cadillac, Michigan). His son, Alfonso Elwin Tilyou, married Cora May Parker. They had two sons, Lloyd and Clarence, and a daughter (my grandmother) Flora Alta Tilyou. After the death of my great- grandmother (Cora), my grandmother (Alta) lived with her (cousin?) Nora Otis (I believe on the Boon Rd) of Cadillac, Michigan. Nora's house burned sometime in the early 1960's. Later, my grandmother married Louis Messlin of Cadillac and they had two sons, Emery Elwin (my father) and
Carlisle Joseph. I have one sister, Carla.

I will try to forward more information to you about Carlisle Tilyou. My father, uncle, and sister can contribute more facts. We have photographs as well. Can you fill me in on
any information you might have concerning the Tilyou family
history? My grandmother once told me that the Tilyou name was not original, but had been changed from Tillou or something similar. Can you verify this?
