Willis Family
Hi Joy,

I've had computer problems, so just responding to your message. Sorry for the delay.

My line of Willis ancestry is from James Hamilton Willis and Elvira Love Jones. My great grandmother was Amelia Willis, daughter of James & Elvira. Mom's maternal side was Colberts, Loves, and Willis and Hayes. Mom's paternal side was Dickersons. Dad's folks were Cox, Hargis, and Henson.

I had a great time photographing the Willis cemetery, now kind of lost without having more to do there. I'd like to get a cemetery clean-up day scheduled this summer over there. It's sad there seem to be so many unmarked graves. I still haven't posted my last photos, but hope to before too long. I'm on a borrowed computer, so will get them done when I either get mine repaired or Uncle Sam (income tax refund) buys me a new one!

Thanks for your info and if you would like any memorials transferred to your ownership, let me know.

Holmes Willis Coulter

Thanks for the correction info. I struggled with this one when I loaded it and wondered if the last name should be Coulter, but he was with all the Willises. They certainly do carry the "Holmes" name through many generations! I've corrected it this morning. I have just completed taking photos of all the markers in the Willis Cemetery.Haven't loaded the last 50 or so yet. I started off doing just my relatives, since this was my hometown, then couldn't bear for the others not to be documented on findagrave. Are you related to the Willis family? I am a descendant of Willis, Colbert and Love family on Mom's side and Cox, Hargis, and Henson on Dad's.
