The Richard Tullis Family of 
Columbiana County, Ohio
Part 2: John & Sarah Tullis, 
Richard & Rachel Tullis

by Carolyn Miller (carolyn_miller@hotmail.com) and Patricia Tullys (ptullys@neo.rr.com)

Editor’s Note: This is the second installment of extracts from the book "The Richard Tullis Family of Columbiana County, Ohio" by Carolyn Miller and Patricia Tullys (1989). Last issue’s first installment began with a history of the Tullis Family Reunion in Columbiana County, Ohio, and information about the early ancestors of Richard Tullis. Richard was a descendant of Claudius Tullos (1641-1700). This second installment introduces John Tullis (1762-1839) and his wife Sarah Morlan (1766-1839), as well as John and Sarah’s son, Richard Tullis (1794-1856) who married Rachel Barrett (1800-1856).

Editor’s Note: Future installments of extracts from this book will focus on each of the above twelve children of Richard and Rachel.
