Hi there! Thanks for responding! I'm interested in finding ANY information about the NC/TN/IL Willeys. They must be all related in some way....I might be able to follow someone thru someone else.
I'm guessing our Johns may be different. I think Milly (wife to my John) lived about 4 years after John's death. I know that my John also had a son named Jonathan Caroll Willey (and was able to find a bit about him in a historical record which confirmed the name of his dad & mom) and that Dad owned property in Tennessee. I think my John may have been related to a Felix Willey...I found a TN property deed from John to Felix.
Please send me anything you have. I could SOOoooooo use it!
