Thats a mystery i would love to know. My grandmother never talked about her father because he had a wife and kids. My great uncle Fred Gathern Willis and my grandma Sybil Gaynell Lindsey ( Willis ) She never toke her fathers name. I think Fred G Willis Sr had a store in Greenville. Fred Willis Jr was married to a Carrie Willis and had kids.I have some pictures of a Alice Willis, Dana Willis, Bo Willis but not sure how they are related. Can you tell me more about benard? I looked at his profile and it said something about Germany. I know we have a little german in us.
