      Letter from Don L. King, dated 5/29/04 after review of the Davidson Genealogical Report.

      RE: Zillah-Looking more at the letter, I tend to agree with Davidson, it is slightly different from a T. Also, the grandaughters named Zillah is a powerful argument. I found this definition ( it's of course biblical):
      ZILLAH
      zil'-z ( tsillah; sella ): One of Lamech's wives ( Gen 4:19, 22, 23), The name is perhaps connected with
      Tsel, " shadow ".

      It's interesting to note that even Chisholm and Lillie thought it was Tillah, and quite possibly they might have pronounced it that way, and the spelling followed. Either way, I think it's a real stretch to connect Tillah with Sarah. I believe Tillah was a second wife, following the death of Sarah, most probably after
      childbirth. Benjamins mother however, was certainly Zillah ( Tillah ) White, as his first born daughter was named Zilla.
