Generation No. 3

3. JOHN WILLIS3 BETHANY (JOHN HENDERSON2, CHARLES HOMER1) was born May 1875 in MISSOURI, and died December 12, 1934 in EASTLAND COUNTY, TEXAS. He married SARA CLARA LOVE April 16, 1896 in COMANCHE COUNTY, TEXAS. She was born August 1876 in TEXAS, and died December 11, 1952 in EASTLAND COUNTY, TEXAS.

Notes for JOHN WILLIS BETHANY:
FROM GATEWAY OF THE WEST-VOLUME 1, 1989--EASTLAND, TEXAS 1858-1873

       John Willis came to Texas from Missouri. His forebearers lived in Tennessee and Arkansas with strong evidence that the family migrated to Tennessess from Kershaw County, South Carolina. Two of the South Carolina Bethanys served in the revolutionary war. The forst of the ancestral line in this country may have been Thomas Bethany, who was identified in Overwharton parish, Virginia in 1755.
       The Bethany family name has been associated with eastland County, Texas since the trun of the century. During this time, four generations bearing this name have lived all or part of their lives within its boundaries.


I have a census from 1910 showing a John H. Bethany, 66 and a Sarah B. Bethany, 65 and a son, Charles, 28, son-in-law, and family including a daughter Laura in the Bethany book. John Willis maybe his son???
