John Newberry who married Elizabeth Willis was the son of Jesse Newberry and Deborah (Unknown). They are my direct ancestors. John Newberry and Elizabeth Willis had a daughter named Deborah, born abt. 1794 in North Carolina, died aft.1832 in Lawrence Co., Mississippi.Deborah Newberry married William Thames,Jr.
I am also a direct descendant ofJohn Newberry who married Elizabeth Matthews. Their daughter, Martha Newberry, married Joseph Thames.
I would be glad to exchange information with anyone researching Newberry, Willis, Matthews or Thames families.
