From the overall migration pattern, including birth dates & places, arrival times and locations, I identified Willis CALDWELL as the first of the family who came to Obion Co. He was soon followed by William, John, E. B., and James. Circumstantial evidence suggests they were probably brothers, so that's the way I set up the family chart. Jane Powell's identification of Hannah WILLIS as the mother of James Isaac CALDWELL not only identified James' parents but provided a possible source for Willis' name.
