Have had several folks tell me this is our Nancy...however when I track it all down this Nancy Colis Willis daughter of John and Margaret Elliott Willis was born in 1815-1817 and had several children with a Rayburn Beaver. Some contend he never married her. The children's name don't fit with the ones we know for certain to be our Nancy born 1812 and her husband William Hunsucker Thomas.
I think at some point this family has been confused. There apparently are two separate lines of Willises from the Mitchell/Toe River Valley area.
Thanks for the reply...
