My grandfather, James Person Creech, gave me an Emancipation Oath signed by J.B.TULLY/TULLEY on September 12, 1865. So far I have found no TULLYs in my family tree, so have no idea why Papa Jim had it...think he was a cousin of some sort. The name is spelled both TULLY and TULLEY on the paper. Anyone out there recognize the name from the Johnston Co, North Carolina area? Thanks!
