      • From a newspaper article [circa 1970s]:

        Genealogy records a long line of area families ("Tilley: A Brief Historical Sketch of the Name and Family of the Tilleys", by Arthur Mangum Tilley, 53 pp.). This new genealogy by Arthur Mangum Tilley of Rt. 2, Rougemont, containing records of dozens of families related to the Tilley Clan of the Durham Area, completes a project begun by his sister, Mary Ethel Tilley, who died in 1968. In the forward the author says he obtained information from a number of persons from Durham, Bahama, Chapel Hill, Oxford, Rougemont, Yanceyville, Kittrell, and Knapp of Reeds, all of whom are mentioned. Although he has listed references, the author makes no attempt to document individual citations in the book. Some of the information came from research done by Ben Patrick Moore, formerly of Bahama. The author traces the derivative of the Tilley name back to its European origin in the French Norman village of Tilly. Over 40 pages of the book, a paperback, are consigned, in effect, to little more than listing vital statistics of Durham and Granville Tilleys and related families - Gorham, Webb, Peed, Bullock, Roberts, Ray, Veasey, Clayton, Bowling Roycroft, Hall, Bowman, Ledford, Lloyd, Smith, Allen, Lameth, Currin, Greer, Green, Ferrell, Wheeler, Gray, Latta, Bowen, Laws, Lawson, Malone, Carver, Critchner, Clark, Day, Jones, Parrott, Wilkins, Hicks, Huff, Averette, Morris, Moore, Franklin, Starr, Ellis, Tippett, Carrington, Chambers, Copley, Ball, Parrish and several others. The book may be purchased from the author by mail order. (E. T. Malone, Jr., the reviewer, is assistant news editor of the Durham Sun and a member of the Chapel Hill Historical Society and NC Society of State and Local Historians.)
