James Tillman Sanford Allred Jr. (Tillman) was the eldest son of James Tillman Sanford Allred and Eliza B. Manwaring. He was born February 25, 1854 in Manti, Sanpete County, Utah.
Tillman was born during those troubled times with the Indians. From 1851 until 1866, they lived in constant fear of the Indians. The Allred families made a settlement in Spring City in 1852, but they were driven from their homes. To Manti's fort five times that first year. The settlers in Spring City (or the Allred settlement as it was known then) suffered a great deal due to the scarcity of food, cold winters and the hostilities of the Indians.

Tillman married Christena B. Anderson when they were both quite young, both were scarcely seventeen years old.
In about 1898 Tillman suffered a sunstroke and contracted typhoid fever He was not expected to live and never ate any solid food for over thirty days.
During Tillman's illness, his son Q moved with his family to Canada to homestead there. When Tillman recovered he worried about his son so far away from home and decided to visit him. He went with another son Oliver. They boarded a train for Canada July 28, 1902. They had traveled for a few days when Tillman took very sick, the train's conductor advised Oliver to take him off at Lethbridge, Canada and find a doctor. While they were at the hotel there, some young men originally from Spring City who had moved to the Lethbridge area, heard of Tillman's illness. They immediately got a surrey, made a bed and took them to Q's home, a distance of seventy miles. Tillman fell into unconsciousness on the trip and remained so until he passed away Monday morning August 11, 1902.

The Relief Society sisters there made his burial clothes and prepared him for burial. He was laid to rest in Mountain View, Canada cemetery because it was the law that no body could be shipped from that country for one year. After that long Christena did not wish that his body be disturbed. A grave marker was placed for him in his home town at Spring City, Utah. Tillman was 48 years 5 months and 16 days old at his death.
