I believe Williams Wesley Willis was the first mayor of Ceder City Utah. He is buried in Beaver Utah. I would appreciate any information I can get on this person or anyone related to him.

According to a note on p. 12 of the Mayors of Cedar City book, Willliam Wesley Wills Sr. (1811-1872) was incorrectly listed as a mayor in the 1915 Prominent Men of Utah book.
I have e-mailed this inquirer personally with the full text of that note.

Have done extensive research on William Wesley Willis, and believe he was mayor of Cedar Fort (now Cedar City) during the Mountain Meadows massacre in 1857. This info found in the Rare Books Room at the Cedar City, Iron Co. Library.

Dalene, I'm an avid genealogist and direct descendent of William Wesley Willis through his daughter Ann Cherry. I have also spent some time researching the Willis line and would like to share information with you.

I am a descendent of Joshua Thomas Willis, William Wesley's brother. I have written a book on the family. William Wesley was a mayor of Cedar City, though it is believed it was an interrum for Issac C Haight, during his leave, because of the Mountain Meadows Massacre investigation. If you have further questions on William or Joshua write me at shareene_strem@hotmail.com

Have you posted this information on the internet? Is there a link we could post here when someone else finds this thread? If no, I'm happy to converse through email.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Gary, I am also a decendent of William Wesley Willis through his daughter Ann Cherry. I don't have much information, but would love to talk to you about this family. I believe we communicated before through LaDon Ellett.
