Here is a statement this compiler wrote on Dec 19 2016 while trying to sort out this line and examining the work of others: "Many on-line genealogies place Jemima Cullen who married Thomas Tyler on Jan 25 1759 as daughter of John/Arabella (Roach) Cullen, but the time line doesn't work. There either needs to be another generation in-between John/Arabella Cullen and Jemima, we must accept the fact that Jemima Cullen married at an older age and had several children over the age of 40-45 (not likely)." It was a stumper until I engaged Becky Miller to help me sort this line out. She is a well-heeled student of early Somerset history and has spent 1000s of hours culling through the old records to make sense of the familial lines there - especially in the western section of the county6, the portion that stayed as Somerset after Worcester County was formed in 1742. Whenever I run into roadblocaks here, I can inquire of her to help sort things out and she always proves to be a fountain of knowledge. It was she that got me back on track with these Bradshaw/Cullen/Tytler connections and showed me how there were actually TWO generations of marriage between Thomas Tylers and Jemima Cullens - something that I set forth to myself as a possibility but initially discarded as too coincidental to be true. It served as just a reminder that, when roadblocks are encountered in genealogical research, one must examine ALL the hypothetical possibilties towards a solution. I may have eventually gotten there myself but Becky's work proved invaluable to this particular solution!
Jemima married Thomas Tyler, son of John Tyler and Alice Butler, about 1731 in Somerset Co., MD. (Thomas Tyler was born before 1708 in Smith Island, Somerset Co., MD and died in 1783-1798 in Smith Island, Somerset Co., MD.)
