I've hit a brick wall regarding my ancestors, and I'm hoping someone out there might have some of the answers I'm searching....
My ggfather was: William Abe (maybe Amos?) Willey B: 1867 Illinois, died mining accident Kansas or Missouri approx 1917-1920,
my gggfather was: Isaac Wilson Willey B: 1831 Tennessee, moved to Illinois as child with parents
my ggggfather was: John F Willey B Abt: 1805 Tennessee, possibly NC - married Millie or Milly Margaret Morris or Morrison (I'm fairly certain this should be correct, but John F is where it starts getting sketchy because I'm not certain which John Willey this is....could be son of John or could be son of William)....
possible gggggfather: John, BAbt: 1770, Halifax, North Carolina
possible gggggfather: William (possibly Daniel or Dickson) Willey, Jr, BAbt: 1770 Halifax, North Carolina
either way (John or William = brothers), I believe their father, my ggggggfather would be William Willey, Sr, birth date I have found anywhere from 1726 to 1750 Halifax, North Carolina,
gggggggfather: Joseph Willey, m. I believe, to Mary Ives
And that is where I stopped because I just couldn't follow anymore and make sense of it all. I sure do hope you can help, cause there is no one in my family that has a clue about our ancestors (not even my dad).
