Nehamiah TATMAN Jr. & Mahala TATMAN ties
Aloha TATMAN Reseachers:
I am trying to confirm a connection between my GGG Grand mother, Mahala [nee TATMAN] THRAPP HOLT and her father. I received an email from a person who is suggesting that Nehamiah TATMAN and Pricilla TRUITT may be Mahala's father. My contact stating that he had an "old letter from Mary Ann Wooley and Hiram Truitt's widow" that stated the following:
"All said Nehamia was cruel man, and that Pricilla lived a miserable life, that Hehemia remarried after the death of Pricilla and had another family. Pricilla died when her children were quite young. Hiram and Cary were reared by their grnadparents, Samuel and sarah Truitt. Mahala by her Uncle Eli Truitt. as his children and given his name. She is listed with the family of Eli. Nancy was 'afflicted and fell into shallow warter during a seizure and drowned.'" [sic] [grammatical and spelling errors in original email message]
I have no idea of the authenticity of this quote nor the authors of the quote; I do not possess the original letter.
Below is the information I have on Mahala TATMAN:
