Tillman W. McCarty Family.
This website was created to further the research of the McCarty clan - espcially those of us descended from Tillman (Till) Watson McCarty (b.7 Nov 1824, Edgefield County, SC d.24 Oct 1893, Fannin, MS) and his wife Sarah Jane Lovelace/Loveless (b.14 Mar 1831 Georgia d.2 Jan 1892 Fannin, MS). It is believed that Tillman is descended from Philip Michael McCarty (b.21 Jul 1791, Edgefield County, SC d.16 Jul 1879, Dale County, AL), Michael McCarty [II] (b.1754 d. 1843), Michael McCarty [I] (b.1732). It is believed that Michael I came from Cork County, Ireland, although we have not been able to confirm that.
Several in our family have collaborated together to create our database which you can view.
We celebrate our family with a family reunion every June - usually the second weekend. Our next reunion will be June 7-9, 2013 in Nacogdoches, TX, at the Quality Inn & Suites, 3400 South Street. The phone number is 936-564-2800 and ask for the McCarty Reunion Rate ($65/nite for one king or double queens). It is the same weekend as the Blueberry Festival, so get your rooms now. Dinner will be $13/person at 6pm. Hope to see you there!
A meeting was held in 1961 in Philadelphia, Mississippi to discuss the possibility of holding a reunion, and the first one was held in 1962 and there has been one every year since that time. We elect a vice-president each year to assist the president the first year and then be in complete charge of the reunion the following year. Our president is Audra Ainsworth and our vice-president is Amanda Pace .
As this site grows, we hope to include various pictues from past reunions, as well as some of the MANY stories that abound about our ancestors. Please let us know if there is anything specific that you would like to see here. After all - this is YOUR page too!
