All the info I have is Romie Tilley b.1904
d. 1976 in Birmingham Ala. He later was married
to Lila Tilley. He was either half or whole
Indian. Sometime between 1924-1930 he met my
grandmother Margaret Frances Barron, they lived
together and had a child my mother, Imogene (Jean)
Verdia. The couple was never married.
(Jean) was born 1929 in Dora, Ala. My grandmother left Ala.
in 1930 moved to Tenn.
I,ve tried to get a death certificate for Romie
Tilley but was told it cant be released
to grandchildren for two more years from Ala.
Any help woud be great. Thanks

I've been researching the Tilley line for at least ten years. I'm a direct descent of Thomas Montgomery Tilley. He was married three times and fathered twenty one natural and adopted children, one of which was named Coley Tilley. I have some info and will share. I believe we are researching the same line. contact me via my privat email listed above.

I live in Huntsville and am a direct descent of Thomas Montgomery Tilley. I know he was married three times and fathered twenty one natural and adopted children. He was a busy man. I've visited Cullman in my years of researching the Tilley line. Please contact me as Coley Tilley is listed on some of my papers as being a descendent of Thomas Montgomery.

I don't know that I can be of any help. I am unaware of either name you mentioned as being in my family tree, but that doesn't mean they aren't. I always thought growing up that the name Tilley name was kinda rare, but after beginning my research on the internet have realized there are ALOT of Tilleys! I'll be glad to compare info with you. There are a Tilley's in Cullman that I have not been able to connect with me.

Thanks for the quit reply. My Tilley tree begins with a Edmond Tilley and Sarah Ferguson who had eight children, one of which was John J. Tilley who married Mahalia Keller. They had fourteen children one of which was Thomas Montgomery Tilley. Thomas Montgomery was married three or four times and had twenty one natural and adopted children. I know he died sometime between 1910 and 1920 because I find him on the 1910 census, but not on the 1920. I have talked with some older Tilley relatives in Etowah county and they know he died with young children by his last wife. Anyway, tell me who your researching and maybe I can find a connection. Which county are you searching in, if Alabama? If not, Alabama, where?

I am researching my family tree and I am looking for the Fergusons.

Our family (on my fathers side) is mostly from Pensacola, FL, MS, and Alabama.

Do any of these Fergusons look like they might be of relations?

Who is Albert's father...?

I appreciate your time and hope to hear from you.

We are desperately trying to get any information/photos on the Fergusons.

Thank you.
