Sources (n.b., Surry and Wilkes Cos. are adjacent):

1.  Jordan R. Dodd, ed.  1993.  North Carolina Marriages:  Early to 1850.  Liahona Research, Orem, UT (Broderbund CD-229):
Lions, Meredith Tilen, Perelene Dec 18, 1845 Surry Co.
"Tilen" could easily be a mis-reading of "Tilla" if the second "l" is short and the "a" was left open.

2.  1840 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  there are several TILLA families and one TILLY family in Surry Co., NC; there are TILLEY families in Wilkes Co., NC.

3.  1850 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #142 of 263):  Wilkes Co., NC, Roll 649, p. 320B, 1051/1051, enumerated 11 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
