Evidentially they are not in everyone's tree because they are not in mine. I have not researched beyond Walter Raleigh Tillett. My research is primarily on the earlier Tilletts, going back to William Tillett and his wife Sarah Scarborough who are most likely the 4th great grandparents of Walter R. Tillett.
