I'm looking for all Tellis's, especially those from the Union Springs, AL area.

I checked the Social Security Death Index and saw quite a few names from the Union Springs area, so I know their descendents are out there somewhere!

Please E-mail.

My name is Brenda Schwigen. My father was Gary Stephen Tellis. My mother was Darlene (Mullen) Tellis. My fathers father was Anthony L. Tellis. He was married to Evelyn Irene Bailey. As far as I know we are from DesMoines, IA. I found a whole listing of Tellis's on "Yahoo" using the white pages through them. They list quite a few in Alabama.

The Tellis in Al are mostly African American ( I assume).

We are cousins! Have you ever heard your Grandmother (Naomi) called "Aunt Boo"? She is my grandfather's (James)
sister. Her mother was called "Mama Emma" - right?

Dennis Tellis was one of the grandchildren of this couple
I mentioned, although I am not sure to which of the sons
he belonged. My grandfather was Charlie Tellis. If you
are really intersted in more info, you can call me and
I will put you in touch with a couple of my older cousins
who are also Tellises (one is Dennis's grandaughter) the
other Sam's grandson. They could tell you more about these
twelve children and the Tellises who lived in the Bruceville
community, located just outside of Union Springs, AL.
