I'd never heard my great-great-great grandpa referred to as "Tony" before! His grandson was "Tolly". I believe he was born a little earlier, perhaps 1800. I descend from his son, Isham Roe Towles, by his second wife, Sarah Ann Robinson

Yes, this William is the one who served in the GA Legislature.

He was the son of Stockley Towles (c 1744-1785) and Martha Gillum/Gilley/Gilliam. He received a 100 acre grant on Turpin's Creek, branch of Saluda River, in 1774. Martha Towles, Joseph Towles & Joshua Gillum administered his estate. Bond posted was $2000 pounds, sterling.

Stockley was the son of John Towles (1712-1786) (the one hung by Tories)& Margeret Daniel. John m Margaret Vivian Daniel, 9 Oct 1735, per Christ Church Register, Middlesex Co, Va. He sold out in VA by 1766 when he obtained land on Sandy Run in Old 96 Dist, SC

Does anyone know how Seth Towles fits into the family? He m Mary WILSON ROBINSON,c 1825, Edgefield Dist, SC & d by 1830.

Elvira had siblings names Morris G, John Culbreath & William H. Towles.
