Born 4 Jan 1843, Greene Co., TN; died 21 May 1905, Siloam Springs, Benton Co., Arkansas; son of John Willis and Annie Allison. (See John Willis 1807-1865).
Married: 1 Jan 1864, Greene Co., TN to Rebecca Jane Dinsmore, daughter of Leander Dinsmore and Mary Brooks.
Children:
1. Mary A. Willis, born ca 1864; married Joseph A. Bowles, 18 Dec 1884, Benton Co., AR.
2. Sarah Willis, born 13 April 1866, Greene Co., TN; died 23 Nov 1946, Adair Co., OK; married L. Dick Brown, 12 Sept 1884, Bentonville, Benton Co., AR.

Alfred Webster Willis, born 14 Dec 1867, Green Bo., TN; died 16 March 1961, Siloam Springs, Benton Co., AR.; married Lucy Simmons.
4. Margaret Willis, born 13 March 1869, TN; died 4 April 1933, Calera, Bryan Co., OK; married 1) Thomas D.Bowles; 2) Edward "Ned" Simmons.
5. James K. Willis, born 5 June 1870, Greene Co., TN; died 16 Feb 1959, Siloam Springs, Benton Co., AR. Buried in Bell Cemetery; married Ida Alice Jones, 13 June 1892.
6. William L. Willis, born 31 Jan 1876, VA; died 23 March 1940, Siloam Springs, Benton Co., AR. Buried in Bell Cemetery; married Jennie Janata Simmons.
Notes for Carson Willis: Listed on the 1850 and 1860 census with his parents in Greene Co., TN; He is listed with his family on the 1870 Greene Co., Census. He is on the 1880 Benton Co., AR. Census. On this census, his youngest child, William was born in VA. This may have been on the trip to OK. The 1900 Census reports 7 children born, 6 living.
Carson is buried in Bell Cemetery, Watts, Adair Co., OK in an area surrounded by Bowles and their descendants. There were several sons and daughters of each family that married into the other family. In fact, Carson and Jane's daughter, Margaret married John Longdon Bowles' grandson, Thomas Bowles and after his death, she married Ed Simmons, grandson of John Longdon Bowles from his daughter, Lucy's marriage to Powhatten Simmons.
Notes for Rebecca Jane Dinsomore: Frank Pearce (ggrandson) says that he thinks that Jane lived with Margaret and Ed Simmons near Calera, OK before she died. He doesn't know when that was but does remember that Margaret kept her mother's room intact after she died and that the children were not allowed in the room. I have not been able to confirm this information. Another Willis descendant is attempting to see if his relatives that are still alive (65+ yrs) might know anything about Jane.

Born 1825 in VA/PA; died 22 May 1890 Forest Home Twp., Antrim Co., MI; son of Pollard/Apollo Willis and unknown mother.
Married: 19 Feb 1845, Guernsey Co., OH to Margaret Brands/Brown. (records have two different names). She was born between 1822-1832, OH; dieed 1898, Antrim Co., MI; Mother and Father unknown - both born in PA;
Children:
1. John William Willis, born 1846, OH
2. Zachariah Willis, born 1848, OH
3. Emily Willis, born May 1860, OH
4. Pollard/Apollo, born 11854, OH; married 15 May 1879 to Sarah Ellen Willis

8. Phillip Willis, born 1869, OH
Note: Military: Comp. D, 42nd OH Vol. Inf.
I'm not sure if Cyrus' father's name really was Pollard/Apollo; I have not seen the original marriage document yet. The same source lists Margaret Willis' maiden name as Brands. Death sources list her name as Brown and my family's oral history says Bryant. Guernsey Co., OH, at the time of their marriage was full of Browns, not many Brands/Brand families.
