Tillie ROYALTY, daughter of Samuel ROYALTY and Joanna PALMER and sister of Florence ROYALTY, married Charles Thomas “Tom” WELLS about 1886, most likely in Pope County, Illinois. They were the parents of Charles Edgar WELLS b. 1886 and Frances “Fannie” WELLS b. 1892, both in Pope County. After the births of their children they were seen in Bedford County, Tennessee, in 1900 and in Johnson County, Illinois, in 1910.
Tom, Tillie and their children moved to California in the early 1910s, before 1915 when Tillie’s sister Florence visited them. They lived in San Luis Obispo County, California, in 1920 and 1930 when the census was taken.
