Surnames: Collis, Patton, Hall, Woody, Sparks, McKinney
I am researching the descendants of John "Jackie" Collis who lived in Yancey County, and particularly the descendants of his son, James M. Collis (1812-1886), preacher, Civil War soldier, and Mexican War Vet, who lived his later years in Mitchell County NC. His children include Billy, John, Stephen, James Stokes Collis, Elizabeth Woody Hall, Annie Mae Anderson, Polly Queen, Nancy Patton, and Martha McKinney. I would like to correspond with anyone who has information on this family.
