Tillman Gregory 2 (ca. 1797-?) was the eighth son of John and Margaret Gregory, based on the list of his sons in John’s will recorded on 5 April 1819. In February 1819, John Gregory granted to Tillman, 100 acres of land “one half of 200 acres whereon the said John Gregory now lives.” This was part of a tract of land granted to Isaac Gregory, Sr. by William Bull, Governor of South Carolina, dated 20 June 1768 and located on a south branch of Brown’s creek.

Based on the information currently known (1999), Tillman Gregory married Lydia ca. 1828-1829. His first wife apparently died at child birth when their daughter Mary J. was born ca. 1830. Tillman and Lydia had four children: Margaret; Addison; Wesley; Mary J.

It appears that Tillman along the family of Captain Matthew Patton and his wife, Nancy Bobo, daughter of Sampson and Sarah Simpson Bobo, and other family members moved from SC ca. 1829 to Carroll Co., TN arriving there ca. 1831. Nancy Bobo Patton had been married 3 times, lastly to Capt. Patton ca. 1802. In the 1850 census of Carroll Co., TN, Tillman is listed with his second wife, Sarah W, whom he married ca. 1833 in TN, and their family along with some Dudley children. Why were these Dudley children in Tillman’s household unless they were relative’s of his second wife or of Nancy Patton.

Two doors down is listed Sarah Patton, widow of William L. Patton, son of Capt. Patton. Sarah Patton prior to her marriage was Sarah Ann Isabella Means. When Capt. Patton died in 1837, his son, William L. was adm. of his estate and his bond was signed by Tillman Gregory and Joseph T. Dudley. Willam L. Patton and his wife’s daughter, Rachel F., married James H. Dudley (of Tillman Gregory’s home). Apparently Tillman’s first wife may have been part of Nancy Bobo’s family by her previous marriages but this is pure speculation until proven otherwise. She is living with Tillman in 1850 census. Tillman’s family as listed in the 1850 census of Carroll Co., TN:

#533 Tilman Gregory 53 – M W Farmer – $5000 S.C.
Sarah W. Gregory 37 – F W Tenn.
Mary J. Gregory 20 – F W S.C.
Thomas Gregory 16 – M W Farmer Tenn.
William Gregory 12 – M W Tenn.
