William WILLIS
Elizabeth DAVIS
Mary PULLIAM
WARNING:  a few minutes roaming WorldConnect and the LDS Ancestral File tell me the early WILLIS ancestry is totally screwed up (as is often the case with a common surname).  In particular, the parentage of this set of children is controversial.  Some say their parents are our subjects, William WILLIS & Elizabeth DAVIS; others say their parents are Richard WILLIS & Ann CROWDER.  I have no idea which, if either, is correct. 
Husband:  William WILLIS
Birth:  ca. 1732/3, Brunswick Co., VA
Will proved:  10 Apr 1792, Mecklenburg Co., VA
Marriage-1:  ca. 1744
If they were born as late as 1732, how could they be married in 1744 and have a child by 1745?
Wife-1 by tradition:  Elizabeth DAVIS
Birth:  ca. 1732
Death:  ca. 1782, VA
Marriage-2:  ca. 1780, Pittsylvania Co., VA
Wife-2:  Mary PULLIAM
Birth:  ca. 1740, VA
Death:  bef. 20 Dec 1830, Mecklenburg Co., VA
Other Spouse:  m2. 18 Feb 1795, Granville Co., NC, Howel ROSE
Father:  Benjamin PULLIAM
Mother:  Mary BRUCE

Those who advocate Richard & Ann as the parents of these children, have Mary PULLIAM as the wife of their son, William WILLIS.
