Rebecca Ann Broy Tuley
Birth: Apr. 12, 1831
Shenandoah County
Virginia, USA
Death: Mar. 12, 1903
Lewis County
Missouri, USA

Grandmother Rebecca’s ancestors have been traced to her great-grandfather John Broyhill, whose ancestors were found in Shropshire, England. He had settled in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and this is where the Broy family resided until Rebecca’s father Daniel moved his family to Lewis Co., MO. John’s brother James fought in the Revolutionary War, but as far as we know, John did not.

John’s son and Rebecca’s grandfather William was a landowner, tax collector, and tanner. He disowned his sons, Daniel Boone Broy and his brother John in his will. The reason is unknown. Daniel, Rebecca’s father, was a manufacturer and inventor. He invented an early form of corn planter but was unable to profit from it, as John Deere Co. stole his patent.

Our grandmother Rebecca was the second oldest of eight children, seven of whom were daughters. Rebecca was married to William Addison Tuley in Lewis Co. on May, 6, 1847, and she bore 13 children, the youngest of whom was my great-grandmother Tresa Tuley.

Rebecca A. Tuley was born in Virginia on April 12, 1831, and died March 13, 1903. Aged 71 years and 11 months. She came to Missouri with her parents when but four years old. Was converted and united with the Wyaconda Baptist church early in life, and lived an exemplary christian life for over fifty years. She was married to Wm. A. Tuley in 1847. Of this union were born to them 13 children--8 girls, 5 boys--two girls and four boys survive her. Her husband died several years ago. The death of sister Tuley will deprive the home and children of the best friend that dwells upon the earth--mother--and cause a vacancy in the church and community that will not be easily filled. No one who knew her doubted her piety. She had great sorrow a greater part of her life, but bore her trials with resignation and christian fortitude. We can all testify in deed and truth that a noble spirit has passed from time to eternity, to dwell forever in Heaven's mansion prepared by her blessed Redeemer. John 14:1,2,3. Her funeral was preached by the writer at her home, and a large concourse of friends and acquaintance were in attendance. Then her body was laid to rest in the cemetery at New Prospect church to await the call from on high for the resurrection of the sleeping bodies of the dead.
