Willis married Mary Jane Wilkins who was born in BedfordCounty April 8, 1826, daughter of Charles & Lucy Wilkins. Thewedding took place in Tallahatchie County, MS on April 28, 1847. They had eleven children including Wiley Jones SHAW, my wife'sgrandfather. We are looking for relatives who may have filled in thegap between Williamson County and County Caven. Looking forward tofinding an answer to this mystery.

When and where did John HAGGARD, one of Castlemen's "Indian Spies",marry and whom did he marry? According to one source, he was marriedto a GIBSON. Better sources indicate he was married to a MissMAYFIELD of the Mayfield Station Mayfields. Perhaps he married eachin turn. Since he came from Virginia, he may have married in Virginiaor Kentucky. Can someone solve this problem for me?
