* The Family Of Andrew Carl Tidwell*

Updated June 28, 2010


Andrew Carl Tidwell was born in Murray County, Georgia on July 18, 1894 and died in Lakeland, Florida on April 15, 1985. He married Izzie Cleo Gravitt about 1915. Together they had twelve children: eight girls (Juanita, Ada Katherine, Retha Mae, Lillie Gertrude, Francis, Rozelle, Runelle, and Shirley) and four boys (James, Walter David, Baby Boy, and Bobby Lee). Their oldest daughter, Juanita, died in 1930 at age 14 and the Baby Boy was stillborn in 1936. I am also tracing the direct ancestors of Andrew. The hope is to trace his ancestry back to the three brothers who arrived in colony of Virginia in the 1600's. I have succeeded in tracing Andrew's direct ancestors back to his great grandfather Anderson Tidwell who was born in South Carolina about 1786. Thus far I have had no success determining the names Anderson's parents. This home page contains the names of Andrew's descendents as well as the names of his ancestors that I have been able to identify. There are also links to many photos of various Tidwell relatives, family reunions, as well as Federal Census forms.

Any information from other Tidwell relatives would be greatly appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
