Notes for Thomas Tull, Sr.:
The following is a summation which was posted on the Tull TULL-D Digest V01 #41. It addresses the problems associated with the Irish theory which was found in A Biographical Sketch of the Life of John Porter Tull and his Descendents by James Porter Tull. 

The Tull list is administered by Roy Juch, whose wife is a Tull descendent. Roy has 1000's of Tull descendants in his files. He can be reached at

>Porter Tull offered no proof to back up his Irish theory. He simply
>asserted that it reflected, "....the authentic records of Ireland,
>England and Virginia", but without any indication of where others might
