Just to add to the confusion... My father was James Williamson Willey, Jr.1932-2001 Grandfather James Williamson Willey, son of Warren Monroe Willey, son of James Williamson Willey, 1818-1896, who had six wives! The last was Elizabeth Vineyard Merry (Edwards) Her oldest daughter, Mary Ellen Edwards married JWW's son Wilson Issac in 1867. They homesteaded in Nebraska. According to JWW's obit, he was born 1818 to a pastor in Dickson, moved to Bond Co, Ill in about 1838 to join brothers John F and Wilson W. I get confused from there (did these people not have baby name books?) because of the name 'recycling' and the dates don't add up... Keep posting ya'll, we'll figure it out!
