(Mary) Catherine Tilghman (Tilman) (Tillman)
George Loy (#219) about
1770 in Orange County, North Carolina; another source says about 1768
in Bucks County, Penn.
Born: about 1744
in Somerset County, Maryland; another source says about 1747, 1752 in Orange
County, N.C. of John Tilghman
(Tillman) (#439) & Mary
Elizabeth ___ or Eva Dryden (#440) .The
identification of Catherine's mother is confusing. From the Loy Family Website, "The only clue we have as to Catherine's parentage is that her
daughter Margaret Ann (Loy) Clapp and Margaret's son Benjamin Clapp
stated in the Mormon baptism for the dead proxy that Margaret was daughter
of George and Catherine Loy, and that Margaret's grandmother was Mary
Elizabeth Tillman." This website also states, "Tobias Tillman
was son of John and Eva (Dryden) Tillman and Tobias' daughter (Phoebe) married her first cousin (Jacob), son of George and Catherine." [In
order for Catherine and Tobias to have had the same father (John), but different
mothers (Mary Elizabeth ? and Eva Dryden), John must have been married
twice... or... there were two John Tillmans.] Other sites on ancestry.com say Catherine's mother was Eva Dryden. [If John and Eva are her mother and father and they were married 1749 in Dobbs, North Carolna as some ancestry.com sources say, then Catherine's birthdate would have been after that date... probably closer to 1752].
Died: 1833 (about
1830) in Loyston, Anderson, Tennessee; circa 1810
in Tennessee or Alabama. (The preceeding blue information
