It is known that Mary was from Maryland which is interesting.
Believed to be the father of Tillard was a man by the name of Joseph Carter.
One more tid bit: An Amelia Younger married Isaac Hardin. Shortly before his death,
(13 Oct 1839) Isaac wrote a letter to his daughter Mahala from Perry County, IN
saying," Your uncle John has joined the Baptisit Church". Researchers strongly
believe the John referred to is the John who died in Shelby County. This, of course
would make John and Amelia brother and sister. Could Mary be another sibling?
