I descend from William Willis b. 1760 Goochland, VA; s/o Robert Willis and Ellender Nowlin(Naline) Willis.
I also descend from John Thomas b.? possibly 1731 arrived in NY on the Timmems from Wales in 1842 and settled in Lee Co, VA.(still trying to locate him on census).He married Mary Breeding in Lee Co. VA.This John Thomas was my g.g.grandfather.Do you descend from him also, John?If so, then we are closely related as he only had one son, Lawrence Lee Thomasb. 17 Nov 1867 Loudon Co, TN.
Per Ellender Willis' will, her daughter, Mary Willis, md. John Redd in Goochland Co, VA on 27 Jan, 1778.The only thing I have on John Redd is that he was b in Hanover Co, VA and died before 1808 in Goochland Co, VA.Supposedly, they had a daughter, Sarah, b. 1786 d. Bet 1850-1860 Carroll Co MS. md. William Denton.
I would appreciate hearing from either of you regarding what you have on John Redd.CBERRYCPA@aol.com
