 Includes NotesNotes for Lewis Wills:
From Lena Wills: The earliest ancestor of the Wills family of Johnson Co., Tenn. Of whom we have a record is a Lewis Wills, born in Strausburg on the river Rhine in Alsace. Alsace was a French province from 1648 to 1871. Prior to 1648 it had been a German principality for about 700 years. Most of the people were of German descent and spoke the German language. According to Lewis' Revolutionary War pension application, he was born 1744 and came to Lancaster Co., Pa. in 1748. He was drown at Byrd's Ford on the Nolichucky River, Greene Co., Tenn. March 5, 1832 when he was 88 years old.
There are different versions of Lewis' parentage, but the most likely seems to be that he started for America with his father and step=mother when quite young. The father died on the way and his step-mother gave him to a family of Lancaster, Pa., with whom he stayed until 21 years old. He married in Lancaster Co., 1770, Catherine Dick, daughter of Peter and Mary Elizabeth (Linton) Dick. Catherine was born 1747, on board ship as her family came to America. It is said that a close relative was Dr. Elisha Cullen Dick, one of the three physicians in attendance upon George Washington during his fatal illness. Dr. Dick was practicing in Alexandria at the time, was by birth a Pennsylvanian and by faith a member of the Society of Friends. There is a tradition that Dr. Dick stopped the clock on the mantel in General Washington's room at the moment of his death. Mrs. Washington later presented this clock to the Doctor and he in turn presented it to the Alexandria-Washington Lodge of Masons, of which George Washington had been a first Master and later Dr. Dick served in this capacity.
The first Lewis Will's Revolutionary War pension application reads: Born Oct., 1744, Strausburg, Alsace, Germany. Entered the army for eighteen months, Virginia; served in Capt. Lamb's Company. Co. Carlin's Regiment; discharged Winchester Barracks, Frederick Co., Va. After serving his term. Was in battle under General Wain at Jamestown and in the taking of Cornwallis at Yorktown.
Peter Dick's (Dyche's) record for the Revolutionary War reads: born ca. 1748, Germany; died 1790, Frederick Co., Va. Served in the War as a private in Capt. Alexander Lawson Smith's Co., Rawlings Regiment, Continental troops, commanded by Col. Daniel Morgan. He acted in the capacity of Wagonmaster.
Lewis and Catherine (Dick) Wills moved to Frederick Co., Va. Ca; 1780 as that is the time they bought land there. Then in 1795, the Washington Co., Va. Courthouse records show that Lewis bought a farm of 402 acres and paid $1566.00 for it. Then, it is said, that while living in Southwest Va. He entered into a contract with the state of North Carolina to build a forge, for which he was to receive a land grant. He crossed the mountains and finding iron ore and water on Little Doe Creek (in what is now Johnson Col, Tenn.) he built a forge. Here he lived and reared their family until Catherine's death about 1802. Lewis and Catherine had seven children: John, Peter, Elizabeth, Mary, Barbara, Lewis and Sarah. The oldest four possibly born in Pennsylvania. Lewis married second, Ellen M. King and they moved to Greene Co., Va. After their marriage and he died there in 1832 when 88 years old.
There were five children by this second marriage. Catherine is buried in the Wills Cemetery, near where they lived, just north of Mountain City, Tenn. (Johnson Co.)

Sissy and Blanche,
I did a search at Wills-L@roots.com and found your old message below. I hope that at least one of you can still be contacted at these old email addresses. I am wondering if we are Wills cousins, as I see in your list below the name of my Revolutionary War ancestor, Lewis Wills (1744-1832), who died in Virginia.
This is the first hint I have had of possible parents for my Lewis Wills! Any further information would be most appreciated! Blanche, is your book still available?
I have just started a small private group at yahoo for "Descendants of Lewis Wills" to which I am forwarding this message. I also sent a copy to Wes Evans who is also from this Wills line. I hope to hear from both of you soon!

Hello,Do I have any "cousins" out there? Would like to hear from you. This is my WILLS line.

Descendants of Emanuel Wills [ Due to the missing records, some destroyed by fire, others by wars, of a number of the VA Co., especially those of Warwick, King and Queen, Elizabeth City and Buckingham, it has not been possible to establish the parentage of James Wills, Sr. The large bible mentioned in his will may have contained this information,but if extant it has not been located to date. There is conclusive evidence to show that he was of the same family as Elias, Willis,*Lawrence, Edmund and Matthew Wills, brothers, and who were contemporaries of James. They originated in Warwick Co., VA. Records are recorded for Elias in King and Queen, Amelia, Albemarle and FluvannaCo.; for Willis in Warwick, King and Queen and Fluvanna Co., VA; for Lawrence in Warwick, Prince George and Amelia; for Edmund in Amelia and Nottoway Co., and for Matthew in Prince George and Amelia Co's., Va. These men possessed considerable wealth, were prominent in their communities. ("William and Mary College Quarterly," Volume XXIV, # 3) gives the probable identity to Elias Wills' grandsire, quote: "Elias Wills died in 1805, a very old man. Elias Wills was doubtless a grandson of Elias Wills of Warwick County and Mary Condon, his wife." Elias and Willis were popular Wills names, being carried down in a number of the families of Warwick County origin, and this was also true in James' family. Origin of the family was England. Person by that name are found at an early date in County Cornwall; later, they are recorded in Devonshire, and Somersetshire. See page 221
__________
* Note: My attention has recently been called to the publication,"Colonial Families Of The Southern States of America," by Stella Pickett Hardy. this is an excellent reference book, and the author, in her first edition, has requested corrections; therefore, I take this opportunity to correct errors made on the Wills family of Warwick Co., VA Page 27, "5
--2. Mary , m. (first) John Tabb, Jr., (second) Matthew Willis, ofWarwick Co., Va.; (third) Robert Armistead." Matthew Willis should read
---Matthew Wills. Page 128, "4--5 Emanuel Willis, " should read ---Emanuel Wills. End of quote and corrections. Lawrence Wills of theforegoing paragraph married a daughter of John and Mary (Armistead) Tabb,Jr.

Being positive that errors will also be found in this work, "My Virginia Kin," regardless of the care that has been taken in copying the records,reading the galley proofs and checking the printed pages preparatory to the completion of the book , I too, shall be grateful to receive corrections to errors wherever found, regardless of how small.

page 221 A Wills Family Of Warwick and Fluvanna Counties, Virginia, andTexas

Attention is called here to Elias, Willis, Lawrence and Matthew Wills,who are referred to in this work on page 89, (above).
Willis Wills of Fluvanna County, Virginia, who left a will dated Sept.14, 1782, probated Oct. 3, 1782 in the same county, mentioned his brothers, Elias Wills of Fluvanna County and Matthew Wills of AmeliaCounty, Virginia. In his will he also mentioned his daughters, Elizabeth Wills and Rebecca, who married a Cole and a son, Elias. In a deed recorded in Amelia County, Willis stated that he was " of Warwick Co.,VA."

It is recorded in the ("Amelia Co., VA Deed Book 17," p. 212, yr. 1785) that Elias Wills of Fluvanna County, gave the use of a 200 acre tract ofland on Namaseen (Nauwzeen) Creek to his loving brother, Edmund." Alsomentioned Willis Wills as his brother in this deed.

Edmund Wills, Sr. of Amelia County, later Nottoway County, left a willdated Oct. 17, 1796, probated Sept. 7, 1797 (Nottoway Co., VA Will Book1789-1802") in which he mentioned his nephew, Edmund wills as one of hisexecutors. He also mentioned his wife Elizabeth; dau's., - Mary HaynesColeman, Mildred and Lucy; sons, - Matthews, Willis, Edmund, Laurence H.,(his Mothers' maiden name was Laurence (Lawrence), Elias, William, Johnand Simon Wills, in his will.

Lawrence Wills of Raleigh Parish, Amelia Co., VA left a will ("Will Book3, " p. 318, yr. 1784) in which he mentioned his son, Edmund Wills as oneof his executors. Year 1802 this Edmund was referred to as Majjor. William C. Wills, son of Edmund Wills, Sr. bro of Elias of Fluvanna,Etc., lift a will - (Nottoway Co, Va., Will Book 1," p. 282, 1789-1802)and had as one of his witnesses, Thomas T. Wills. Thos. T. Wills took the Matthew Wills Inventory (Amelia co., Sept. 27, 1798). Willis Wills settled the estate of Matthew Wills, ("Amelia Co., Va. Will Book 7," p.308, 1807). Matthew died intestate 1798. Lawrence had a son, Thomas Tabb Wills. Lawrence's name appears on all major business transactionsin Amelia County as a witness for these Wills' brothers. Lawrence also mentioned, in his will, his wife, Ann; daughters, Elizabeth Newman, AnnMoseby, Prudence Dupuy, and Lucy Wills; and son, William in addition to the two sons, Edmund and Thos. Tabb Wills previously mentioned.

At a previous date the writer had some research made on this Wills family of Warwick County, Virginia. Matthew Wills of Mulberry Island, WarwickCo., b. ca. 1696, d. 1760 in Warwick Co., appeared, with the information at hand, to be the logical parent of these brothers, but this tentative placing of his relationship was erroneous as the following references show. thier is conclusive evidence to show that James Wills (refer to page 89) had a family connection to this Wills family
group.
_______________

Elias Wills, of Fluvanna Co., VA was son of John Wills, who marriedSusanna Robinson and died year 1770. John was son of Elias Wills ofMulberry Island, (Warwick Co., now Warwick City), VA, who married MaryCondon, daughter of David Condon And Elizabeth Scarsbrook.
