    Notes 
    • Famous for having walked from Mapandas to Penhalonga (nearly 200 miles), her two children aged 4 and 2 years being carried in a blanket hammock.
    • It is believed that when she married her cousin Alexander Tulloch in Cape Province on 30 Sep 1885 she was already a widow with 2 young children:
      - Margaret Ann (Nancy) Tulloch, born 12 miles from King William's Town 06 Feb 1887, died at Summerfield Farm, Penhalonga on 26 June 1902;
      - Ian (Jack) Tulloch, born at Berlin, Eastern Cape, on 14 May 1889, died at Stapleford Sawmill, Stapleford Forestry Estate, Rhodesia, on 08 Nov 1925.
      It was these 2 children who would have accompanied her on her 200-mile walk to Penhalonga.
    • Umtali's one long street looked at its dreariest during those winter months and but for a few gracious ones among us there would have been nothing to enliven our evenings. Mrs. Sandy Tulloch, being a fine singer and pianist, gathered us into her temporary and always hospitable home, where everyone joined in choruses and she entertained us with her songs and playing. [abt 1898]
