My Absolum Tatom (A.T.)Willett who came to Marion Co., AL, was from Williamson Co., TN. Census of Marion Co., 1850 show A.T. Willett/Lucinda Franks and their children and also his mother Polly Tatom Willett.
I have wondered about the connection and move to Marion Co., AL, as there was a close connection between Polly Willett and James Terrell families in Williamson Co., TN.
Miscellaneous Records of Williamson Co. tells about James Terrell making two different trips in to Nashville to reclaim the woman slave and her children that had been given Mary Willett by her father's will of Hillsborough Co., N.C. He is quoted in court record as saying that he intended for Polly to have what was rightfully hers.
I don't know if any blood connection here. Polly's father had owned 5.000 acres on the West Harpeth River which is mentioned in the 1803 will. He was a member of the N.C. House of Burgesses.
A.T. Willett moved to Marion Co., AL, in 1831 and were in the same little town of Pikeville, AL, with Judge John Dabney Terrell,Sr. Their daughter Lydia married Wm. H. Neal grandson of Judge Terrell(through dau. Alpha). Another of A.T. Willett's granddaughters married into the George Washington Terrell (brother to John D.Terrell) in Marion Co. and this is my line.
