Janis; Marion Pullin was born 1833 in Tennessee. HIs wife was Aley (sp?) their children were Oliver(my ggg-grandfather), James born 1855, and William C born 1858.Maybe these distant uncles is the line you are looking for?This would make them about the right age for being a father.If so we are the same line. Get back with me soon. I will search to see if I can find another Marion in this line.
