I would like more information on Z.Willis. Do you know where he lived? Would you happen to know his parents or his birthdate? Anything at all is appreciated.

Dear Teressa,
I am sorry about not responding sooner.
Zachariah was born in Ga in 1788 died in 1840.
His father was James Willis, Jr, born 08/04/1744 and died about 1809 in Warren Co., Ga.. James' wife was Mary? No further info on her.
His father was James Willis ,Sr. born 02/10/1717 and died Dec. 9/1798 in Craven Co., N.C. He was married to Suzannah DeLamar born 12/06/1720 and died 10/01/1793 in Craven Co. N.C.. Her father was Francis DeLamar and her mother was Susannah Travis, no further info. now.
James, Sr.'s father was Richard Willis, Jr.(1687-1775) and his mother was Marthy?.
Richard Willis Sr. (09/27/1656) was married to Dorthy Gibson and then to Ann Griggs.
Richard, Sr.'s father was Thomas Willis, born 1615 in England and died @1669 in Middlesex Co, Va.. He married Mary Tomlin in 1674. Mary was born in 1654 in N.C. and died 09/27/1684.
Thomas was one of the navigators on the Mayflower. Thomas returned to England with the Mayflower and returned a few years later to settle in N.C. as a rice farmer I believe.
You can contact me at for any other info. Hope this helps.

Dear Terry,
Glad to meet you! I got my info from my uncle, Richard Willis. I am not able to get my files right now because I am not at home, but I will be home on Thursday and will contact him then and get back to you right away.
When and where is your reunion? What branch of the family are you from?

I saw an old post where someone was asking about Zachariah Leany. I am a G, G, granddaughter of Elijah Newton Willis. I'm 99% sure Zachariah Willis is his father, But the Mother I keep going back and forth. I know Zachariah married more than once. He married a Malinda Bartlett and a Leany Morris. In writing you I realize that the Leany is not Zachariah's middle name, which was going to be one of my questions. Back to the question. Are Zachariah Willis and Leany Morris the parents of Elijah Newton Willis who is the father of Robert Young Willis married to Mary Elizabeth Stuckey. What are your sources? Happy to be 100% sure. Joanie
