  • Sources

    • All original info from Genealogy file dated February 15, 2000, which has an error. It has William Willis who married Catherine Goff as being the son of Benjamin and Sarah Willis. Benjamin and Sarah did not get married until 1833, and their son William was not born until 1840. Since the records are all in agreement that William and Catherine were married on January 30, 1834, and I'm sure he was born prior to that, I went with the record that shows he is the son of Benjamin and Blansett Willis.
