Thank you for your reply. Willis actually signed a $500 marraige bond putting both himself and his heirs as responsible for paying it if Joel didn't marry Susan. This is why I was wondering if there was a connection as usually only family members would put themselves up for that kind of responsiblity. I know Joel was mulatto as well and I having a hard time finding out anything about his parents/relatives. Susan as well has been very difficult. I know they were married in Cumberland County. Thanks.
