By any chance, were these 2 brothers? James and Nancy. DOB abt 1750
Peter and Deborah Willis DOB abt 1745?
I have a John T that states he was born in Tenn. 1850 census.Named his first son Willis.These two brothers seem to be heavy on the name Willis.Johns older brother if I have this right would have been named Willis and his father through William to James.The name seems to begin with Deborah. It was not uncommon for the Scots Irish to name children to fathers mothers, etc.
