WILLIS MECOY
(ca. 1735-1800)

Willis Mecoy was born in the 1730's, and lived in Craven County, NC.  In the 1750's he served in the North Carolina Militia.  His first wife's name is unknown, however in 1796, he married  to Keziah Peters Achlin and she is listed executor of his will.  He died in 1800, in Craven County, North Carolina, leaving 10 children, who were mostly grown with families of their own. Most left the area in the following years to pioneer the U.S. with the exception of William and his offspring.  Willis McCoy is the first of my line that I can verify.  I have several ideas about his parentage, however at the moment I haven't been able to prove them.
