About the Book
The book Tullis and Allied Families was compiled by Zola
Scott Hardy over many years of research and with input from many other
family-tree researchers. She published the book in 1980, followed by several
loose-leaf updates over the next few years. It is the most complete book
of the descendants of Moses Tullis of New Jersey and Virginia that has
been published to date. Many Tullises throughout the United States trace
their ancestry to this Moses Tullis.
The book was privately printed and since Zola passed away in 1994 copies
are now almost impossible to obtain. However, it may be found in a few
genealogical libraries, including the Family History Library in Salt Lake
City, Utah, and the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
My late father, Dr. I. Frank Tullis, provided information about our Tullis
line to Zola and corresponded with her over the years. He also purchased
copies of the book for each of his children, which is how I came to have
Recently I obtained permission from Zola's children to scan the book
and post it on the web so that other Tullis researchers can access this
information and benefit from it. I'm grateful to Zola's children for granting
this permission, and to Duane Hawe for his assistance (including providing
a loose-leaf copy of the book for scanning).

Name Index (or PDF, 2.2 MB) (pages 257-300)
Since the name index of a book like this is so important (which Zola
obviously recognized), I have used Optical Character Recognition to convert
the scanned pages of the index to searchable pages. The index pages can
be found here, divided alphabetically by surname:
Note: The name index is searchable using the Search box on the Tullis

Privacy and Error Correction
Note that this book has been reproduced in its entirety. Consequently,
like the original book, these pages may contain information about people
who are still living. If you find information on your immediate family
(yourself, siblings, parents, children) and would like to have it removed,
contact me (as indicated below) and I will attempt to strike out the relevant
portions of the page images. (Note that these are simply scanned images
of the pages, not electronic text, so changes are not easy. That also
means that search engines will not be able to find information in the
Like any genealogical work of this magnitude, it will contain errors.
To retain the original contents of the book but also indicate errors or
additions, I am indicating corrections and/or additions with small yellow
icons beside the information they relate to. The associated note is then
shown at the bottom of that page. For example, you can see such a comment
in Chapter 5 on page 132, next to the entry
for James Monroe Tullis, M.D.
Readers are encouraged to submit comments, corrections, or additions
to the book to be shown in this manner. You can either print the relevant
pages and fax the commented pages to me or email any changes to me at
TomTullis @ aol.com.
