Thanks for all your info. I should have also sent you the Tiller Family Bible reference for the birth of your Ira; which reads as follows:
"Ira Tiller son of William and Rebecca Tiller was born January 25th 1821".
I will send you copies of these bible pages direct.
My wife descends from William & Rebecca Clay & Louisa Jones as follows:
Rebecca Clay=======================William Tiller===========Louisa V Jones Anderson Tiller=Priscilla Perdue Juliet Sarver Tiller=James Russell White Ballard Preston White==========================Laura Angenette Tiller (d/o William & Louisa Jones)
Ballard is my wife's great grandfather. As you can see, Ballard married his great aunt!
For what it's worth; the 1850 and 1860 census shows Anderson was born about 1810 in Ohio. His actual birth per bible was 16 Dec 1810. in the 1880 census Anderson lists his father as born in North Carolina. Gotta believe this is an error since I can't find any Tillers that come close in NC.
