I haved lived in SO. California for 20 years now with my immediate family - Father/Brother/Sister. We were originally from Detroit, Michigan. My Father (Tom)was born and raised in Dearborn. His Father (Joseph) emigrated to Detroit from Germany when he was a young boy. There aren't many Tullius' left in the Detroit area, but there are a few out here in So Cal. From all of the information I've heard over the years, all of the Tullius' are related.
