Wills - Reed

This particular Wills family descended from John Albert Berryman Wills of St Uny Lelant, Cornwall and Ann Reed of Sutton at Hone, Kent, England who married in St George's Church, Truro, Cornwall on August 16, 1866 and together arrived in North America.

Ann Reed

Exactly where John and Ann arrived, New York or somewhere in Canada, has not been discovered. They did have several children with at least three living to adulthood:  "Aunt Liz" who was Elizabeth or Elestra Wills, John Albert Wills and William Henry Wills.  A brother of John, named William Henry Wills after in father, arrived in North American a few years before John and Ann and served in the American Civil War.
