Mattie Jackson Tiller - wife of Benjamin Welford Tiller was my great grandmother. She was from the Kaufman, TX area. It has been years since I have done any genealogy searching of the Tiller family - and have not met James W Tiller or any of that side of the Tiller family. Two brothers, George and William, married Richardson sisters, came and settled in TX - one in Bowie county and the other in Panola county. I am sorry that I don't know of your Mattie Tiller Caudill relative. It seems that growing up and going to Hooks and visiting relatives was something that one did back then - we children were to sit quietly as the older folks visited - and I didn't start to put relations together until a few years ago - realizing that Aunt Pearl (for instance) was my Grandpa Jim's deceased brother's widow. All I remember of her was the low-ceilinged house and that she dipped snuff and her spittoon that she could hit from across the room. I wish that I had paid more attention back then as this generation is the end of our Tiller line and I would love to know cousins and other relatives.
