    John Tomlinson and Dolly Hill Bevillwere my g-g-g-grandparents. I have been able to piece together some information about them and their children. (The only official record I have is their daughter Nancy's and John Taylor's marriage license.)

    John Tomlinson was born 29May 1789 in Guilford County, North Carolina. He married Dolly Hill Bevill (b. 9 May 1786, Guilford County, North Carolina; daughter of Hezekiah Bevill) in 1808 in Guilford County, North Carolina.

    They had 5 children:
    Philip Hill Tomlinson, b. 7 Dec 1811, Guilford County, North Carolina. Died 13 Dec. 1824, Guilford County, North Carolina.
    Nancy Archer Tomlinson, b. 1812, Guilford County, North Carolina. Died before 1880. Married John H. Taylor on 10 Dec. 1829 in Richmond, Wayne County, Indiana. (I am their descendant.)
    Sarah Hickman Tomlinson, b.1816, Guilford County, North Carolina. Died after 1880.
    Gilla Scott Tomlinson, b. about 1813, Guilford County, North Carolina. Died before 1880.
    Amanda AllenTomlinson, b. 11 Oct. 1817, Guilford County, North Carolina. Died before 1880.

    John Tomlinson had a wide ranging career. He was a farmer; a lawyer (never practiced); Delaware Co. (IN) county surveyor, 1829-1837; Delaware Co. (IN) associate judge, 1830-1834; Delaware Co. (IN) probate judge, 1836-1844; 2 term member of the Indiana General Assembly, 1844-45 and 1845-46; and postmaster at Richwoods, Delaware County, IN, 1843-1853. He died 16 Apr 1853 in Delaware County, IN.

    Dolly Hill Bevill Tomlinson died 18 Sep. 1873 in Delaware County, IN.

    Most of my information is from: Shepherd, Rebecca A., et al. Biographical Directory of the Indiana General Assembly, vol. 1, 1816-1899; Indianapolis, 1980; and, History of Delaware County, Indiana; Chicago: Kingman Bros., 1881.
