WEEK 32: Martin Abraham Tullos

Since this is supposed to be “Week 32” of the 52 Ancestor challenge, the theme is “32” which should focus on one of the 32 third-great grandparents in your tree. I am continuing on focusing on my husband’s tree again this week and have chosen his 3rd great grandfather, Martin Abraham Tullos.

Unfortunately, I do not have much information on Martin Tullos. He was born around 1830 in Pike County, Mississippi to Abraham Tullos and Nancy Mobley. Around 1850, he married Sarah “Sallie” Fowler in Jackson Parish, Louisiana. Martin and Sallie had 3 chldren: John Abraham, William Lewis and Malinda.

On May 5, 1862, Martin enlisted in the Confederate Army. His enlistment papers stated that he stood at 5 feet, 9 inches, had a fair complexion and had blue eyes and dark hair. He was assigned to Company F, 28th Regiment, also known as Gray’s Regiment. Martin appeared on muster rolls until August 1863. Under remarks, “Prisoner and pareoled” were written. That was th elast of his Confedarate records. He did not appear in the 1870 Census, and his wife, Sallie, had re-married to a Greenberry Sanders by this time.

Could it be possible that Martin Tullos died during the war? Hopefully, I can someday break through this brick wall.
