Hi there Jo!
Nice to meet you!
Well, I have not much to ad at this point regarding my Willey line:
William Willey (brother to John, who died in Tennessee with will, mentioned brother)>
John F WIlley (who moved to Bond, Illinois along with brother Wilson Willis and James WIlliamson)>
Isaac Wilson Willey (whose son Jonathan Carroll is mentioned in book re: Bond, Illinois history)>
William Abe Willey (whom I am 98% sure is my Ggrandpa).
I've recently found some information that makes me question whether William A Willey shown in census with Isaac Wison in Illinois is really my William A (Abe). I'm trying to track down a Jane Willey and a Harry or Harvey Willey, but not having much luck (they were in the same household back in 1895 in Kansas)....this last bit of info has really thrown me for a loop!
Anyway, thanks for the addition of another brother! How were you able to trace Fred to Wilson Willis, James Williamson and John F???
BTW, Definitely try to follow Rebecca Hitzman's family line. She comes from the James Williamson line, and she and her mother have done some excellent, proven research!
I hope we are related! I love love love the idea I may have family all over the US. I'm in Colorado. How about you?
