The parents of Polly Dungan Tilson, b. 1797 who married Lemuel Tilson(William, Stephen, Edmund, Ephraim, Edmond) are John and Fanny (Gascons) Dungan. They lived in St. Clair, Va., until 1832, then moved to Johnson Co., Ind. In 1846 the family moved to Savannah, Mo., where he died about 1850. He was a shoemaker. His wife died at Rocklane, Johnson Co., Ind., 1847. Through Stephen Tilson who married Janet Murdock, child of John Murdock and Ruth Bartlett you and your descendants are MAYFLOWER descendants. Your ancestors who came over on the Mayflower were John Alden, William, Alice and Priscilla Mullins, Richard Warren and Elder William Brewster. "MERRY CHRISTMAS". This is all documented in the on line book "The Tilson Genealogy" by Mercer V. Tilson. I descend from Letitica Tilson Wilcox(Stephen (Mary Ranson),William Tilson (Mary Pierce),Stephen Tilson (Janet Murdock).John Murdock married Ruth Bartlett. Ruth's great grandparents were John Alden and Priscilla Mullins. Your family is on page 227.
