If you go to The Lost Colony Genealogy & DNA Research Group's web site
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~molcgdrg/sur/1surnames.htm
you will find the name "Tuley" listed as a "Surname of Interest". Most Tooley's from Virginia and North Carolina have at least one ancestor who spelled their name "Tuley".

The Lost Colony Genealogy & DNA Research Group is trying to prove or disprove that the "Lost Colonists" from Roanoke weren't wiped out, but intermarried with friendly Indians.

"Tuley" is a "Surname of Interest" because early (1700's) Tuley's in eastern North Carolina were known to have married women with surnames that were common among Indians living among the colonists.
