I have a copy of Tully's will. I picked it up at the NC State Archives
about two years ago. I just now read it because another researcher was
asking about Tully. I'll be transcribing the will and putting it on the
Spruill page. The copy I have is poor and out of focus so it may take
me a while to get it done.
