Thank you so much, Bill.This has turned out to be a breakthrough for me!
I have been seeking the parents of John R. WILLIS (b. 18 Aug 1824 in KY or IN), husband of Sarah TRIMBLE (b. 23 Nov 1824, Sullivan Co., IN), d/o Joseph TRIMBLE & Catherine CARRICO.
On hearing of Levi WILLIS & Martha ROBARDS, my first thought, of course, is that John's middle name is Robards.An examination of John & Sarah's children, I believe, makes it fairly certain John's parents were Levi WILLIS & Martha ROBARDS.Their children were:
1.Joseph,obviously named for Sarah's father. 2.Levi, surely named for John's father. 3.Catherine, obviously named for Sarah's mother. 4.male 5.male 6.Martha, surely named for John's mother.
So, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!I had been stuck on John for a long time.
What I have is in the form of linked family group sheets.John & Sarah's page is at:
