Tillman Family-Getting Started

tillman family

Posted By: reatha tillman
Date: Tuesday, 4 May 2004, at 4:03 p.m.

My daughter is a sophomore at university of MD at college park
She is doing a research paper on her family genealogy

I am white—Reatha Arnold Tillman
My ex is black—her dad-- James Richard Tillman

We cannot find info on the tillman family before 1950’s
Her dad was born in laurel hill, NC in1954
His Mother eunice mcduffie
Grandmaother was mabell hinson???
Fathers or grandfathers were john tillman and john spencer

I would assume the original tillmans were slaves, possibly owned by a white tillman?
I have found a refernce to a manuscript #1308 of the alexander justice papers which mention the tillman family and then mentions slaves

Could you help me get on the right track to help her
There is so little info available on blacks
Or I have not found the right place to look

Can you help me get started??
