My great grandfather Elisha lived his whole life in Halifax Co. NC. I am trying to identify his father. So far I have looked here at family trees and census data on Ancestry.com. I have also looked at NC marriages and the Halifax Co. Deed Books. I haven't located any evidence that links Elisha to his father. My best guess is that his father was either William or Thomas Willey, both of whom lived in Halifax in the early 19th century. At least one William and one Thomas moved on to Dickson, TN, but I can't find evidence of one who remained. I would appreciate any leads you might offer.
