Facts and Events
This article is for the Joseph Willis who lived in Mercer County, KY before 1810. He is said to be the father of William Willis of Madison County, KY. However, while his will mentions several children, it does not mention a "William" according to information given at Notebook. Joseph Willis, Mercer County, KY.
Name of wife may be a confusion. A Joseph Willis is identified as marrying a Mary Witt in Greenbriar County KY in 1808.
