I've very little research on the Willison's but I do have enough to want = to know more. Somewhere I have a newspaper article about them in the Barry County area of Yorkville. I also have in front of me the Commencement Announcement for the 1898 graduation of Augusta High School which lists Charles E. Willison as one of the three graduates. Since my grandmother (Bessie Wing) was not born until 1895, Charles may have been an uncle = and this announcement was in her possession when she died. I came down = through William Willison Hampton (f. Charles Willison) and continue via the = maternal lines. I am going to Ireland in Sep and it would be nice to know a = little more before I go. I understand that Scotland is in the picture, but I = do remember the newspaper article mentioning that William Willison was from Ireland. Do you have any updates?

Thanks, Joanne Shannon
