52 Ancestors: #33 - John Tuley (abt 1780 TN – 1834 IN)

John Tuley was born about 1780 in Tennessee.  In 1808 he probably married Rachel Stephens in Kentucky.  His will was probated in 1834 in Indiana.  I have no further information about Rachel and I don’t know if she died before or after John.

John and Rachel had at least ten children.  Most of the information posted here has not been completely documented, so please continue to research these people.

William Tuley was born about 1810 in Kentucky and died after 1850 in Indiana, probably Spencer County.  He married Rebecca Askins (Oskins) about 1828, probably in Indiana.  I believe they had at least 7 children, one of whom is America Tuley, born about 1847. 

Elizabeth Tuley was born about 1811 in Kentucky.  She died after 1880, probably in Indiana.  Elizabeth married Benjamin Hesson and I have identified 8 children. 

Margaret Tuley was born about 1813 in Kentucky and she married Silas Brown, also in Kentucky.  At this time I know nothing else about this couple.

John M. Tuley was born about 1816 in Kentucky and died before 1900, probably in Indiana.  John married Nancy Hesson about 1836 in Indiana.  I believe they had at least 6 children.  Nancy died about 1851.  John then married Zepora Beth Agan (numerous spellings of first and last names), in 1853 in Spencer County, Indiana and they had four children.

James Monroe Tuley was born about 1816 and married Jane Elizabeth Pierce.  They each have their own blog posting on this site.

Martha Tuley was born about 1819 in Kentucky.  She died before 1910, probably in Indiana.  I believe that Martha married Levi Hale about 1863.  No further information is known about this couple at this time.

Mary Tuley was born about 1821 in Kentucky.  About 1841 she married William Wiatt (Wyatt) Crooks in 1841 in Spencer County, Indiana.  I believe they had one son about 1842.  Mary died after 1880, but William died at an earlier date.

Samuel Tuley was born about 1823 in Kentucky and he died sometime after 1870 in Indiana.  Samuel married Nancy Mariah Grigsby in 1849 in Indiana.  Nothing more is known about this couple at this time.

Eliza Jane Tuley was born about 1826 in Indiana.  She married Silas Bridges about 1841.  Eliza and Silas had at least 4 children.  Eliza died in the early 1850s, and Silas then married Harriet Hesson.  I have not researched any more in this line at this time.

America Tuley was born about 1828 in Indiana.  She married Alfred Milton Hesson in 1845 in Spencer County, Indiana.  They had at least 7 children.  I don’t know if Alfred died during the war.  America died after 1910. 

As you may have noticed many Tuley siblings married members of the Hesson family.  I have not researched the Hessons yet so I don’t know how or if they are related.

If you are interested in working with me researching this family, I would really like to collaborate.
