Help, just starting and easily confused

Help, just starting and easily confused

Surnames: Lilly
Just started with family tree,
Father Dewey Lilly,
Grandfather William C Lilly,
Greatgrandfather Hiram R. Lilly,
GGGfather William H (Groundhog Bill)Lilly,
GGGGfather Pleasant Lilly,
GGGGGfather Thomas Edmond Lilly,
Then it seems to go to Robert Lilly-but I'm confused to date of birth. 1696, 1720, or 1742. Since Thomas Edmond Lilly was born 1775 in VA either of the last 2 MAY be more likely, but 1st Robert lived 114 years-maybe just great gene pool? Any help would be appreciated.
William

Welcome to the great legend. From Dewey (pg 218) back to Thomas Edmond (pg188) in Jack Lilly's book LILLY FAMILY HISTORY 1566-1997 your line is there with dates, details, etc.

The great LILLY REUNION each year celebrates near the Robert & Fannie Lilly Monument where their original markers are at the base. Yes, they give Robert & Fannie 114 & 111 year life spans. 1696-1810 and 1696-1807. Which makes the children listed born when she was in her later years 70+. Is there a missing generation? -somethink so
but this is the way it has been handed down. Good luck. Vernon
