This is meant to be a fun page to show
which Tolle descendant did the most of something

This page is under construction big time. I have only had time to put up a beginning before I leave on vacation. If you have any record breakers in your tree please share.

Those who lived 100 years or more

108 years -- Lucy Ann (Nichols) Ward born 12 Feb 1872 in Barren County, Kentucky and died 1980 in Barren County, Kentucky, daughter of Cynthia A. (Tolle) and Byrd W. Nichols.
