UPDATEDBassingham info (Thank you to my detectives @Eyebee and @KatKimJac)

A “Relative” responded to one of my message board queries, regarding my “Grandpa,” that raised me, Donald Chance Willis.

Armed with a little more information, about his mother, “Amelia Louise Chance Willis,” I set out to see if I could find some Google Juice.

I happened upon an IGI on familysearch.org:

amelia willis IGI

I considered this.. and then went to search on GenealogyArchives.com..

I found a census record, that might be Amelia..  I don’t have enough experience to “guess-read” the places, though, and I need the page before it.  I used credits to read it, and it didn’t seem to have an option to go the page before.

After all of this unknown name.. it dawned on me.. Amelia would not have been listed, as a daughter, with the Willis surname.  This can’t be her. *sigh*
