We’ve met up with a few people who have some more Tillery information, including Randy who’s going to connect us with some of Harriet Tillery Paxton’s information and hopefully we can do the same for him through some of our work. We’ve been e-mailing, hunting and scanning as usual.

I cannot stress enough how important it is for every little detail to be expressed! The smallest details are SO important to our work. If you’re sitting somewhere reading this thinking about sending us a note, please do! Your thoughts are important and what you know is valuable. Drop us a line… We don’t bite hard at all 😉

We put up two photos today that we’ve been sitting on since last year… Mostly because we wanted to have as much information as possible. We’ve finally managed to name James F Tillery’s wife as Mattie and we’re going from there… But none the less it was time to get these photos up!
New photo (Well new to the site, we’ve been working on clearing up some of the damage on the original for a while now) of Bertie Mary Tillery as well.

Again, huge thanks to the Berry Family for their generosity, their grace and support as we piece together these families of outrageous historical significance. Without people like the Berry Family we wouldn’t be able to do what we’re doing here. They make all of this possible.
Oh, and they also donated our new computer gps system, so we’ll have coordinates for some of those tricky to find locations in no time.
We’re thrilled with these new developments!

With Keffer-Fest around the corner we’re working like dogs to get ourselves up to snuff. Can’t wait to show off all our research and ask more questions. We’re hoping some of the older generation will be around (Like our parents) so we can drag out old stories and fill in a few gaps. All in all our ‘slow’ season this year has been busier than most of our spring! Woohoo for productive research and moving ahead with the master plan!
We hope to see you all in August… Bring your memories and an empty stomach!
