I have a Nancy Colis Willis born 1812 in Mitchell County, NC, to John Willis and Margaret H. Elliott Willis. Could this be your Nancy? Her father, John was born in 1795 and died February 21, 1858. He was a son of Benjamin Willis and Ann Galis. Benjamin was born 1765 in Orange County, NC and died about 1850 in Rutherford County, NC. Benjamin was the son of Henry Willis (1731-1810) and Mary Isabella Watkins, both from Goochland Co. Virginia. Married 3/11/1752 in Goochland Co. VA. I have more info on the Willis family if you feel this is your line.
