EX-UNITED STATES SENATOR, WILLIS B. MACHEN was born April 5, 1810 in Caldwell, now Lyon County, Ky.  His parents, Henry and Nancy (Tarrant) Machen, came from South Carolina in 1809, located on a farm near where subject now resides.  The father was a prosperous farmer, and a man of much energy and good sense.  His death occurred in 1860; that of his wife in 1852.  There are only two of their children living - subject, and Frank, of Princeton, Ky.  The Machens are the out-growth of intermarriages on one side of Huguenots and Irish, and Scotch and English on the other.  Many of the ancestral connection [sic], of Mr. Machen served the colonies with distinction during the war of Independence, among others was his great-
grandfather Woods, who was killed by the Tories, and whose death was severely avenged by his brother, Col. Woods, of South Carolina...
