This is my opinion on the family of Henry Willoby of Knox Co., Ohio. I have no proof yet on this family. This is the way I think it goes.

The names of this family are spelled Wilaby/Willoby/Willaby/Willabee.

Henry Willoby fought in the War of 1812 on the British side and got out of the service in Canada and was in Knox Co., Ohio by 1820.

Henry Willoby married Mariah Furness/Furniss/Furnace in Knox Co., Ohio on 14 June 1822. Henry and Mariah had 11 children all with Mariah. Henry also married Mrs. Mary Ann Shork 15 June 1844 in Knox Co., Ohio.

Children of Henry and Mariah are NOT IN BUIRTH ORDER
