"Tom Putmans family," posted by Tom of Joplin MO, 4 Dec 2008 at born 1719, died 1783, married Elizabeth; one son was William Willoughby, born 1751, Spotsylvania Co VA, died there 29 Oct 1815, married Sarah Sorell, 30 Jun 1779.
"13590," posted anonymously at, 25 Aug 2001: "Joseph Willoughby born in England, and probably of the Kent family of Willoughbys, although the may have been of the Lincolnshire family. It is the tradition that he was the "younger son" of this family which came first to England with the Normans. He came to Virginia (tradition says with his brother who journeyed to Vermont) between 1745-1750. I can't as yet fix the exact date. He settled in Spottsylvania County, Virginia. The given name of his wife was Elizabeth. I don't know whether he married in England or in Virginia. He was educated and taught school for a time. He owned a few slaves and considerable land. The land he gave to his son William before his death in view of his son incurring certain debts and taking care of him during the remainder of his life." [This posting gives him the same parents we have, but a different origin. Nothing I know says whether this person is or is not correct. Where is the evidence for any of it? KP]
Also a son Edlyne, b ca 1752 Spotsylvania Co VA, d 17 Dec 1839, Wadesboro NC, married Eleanor Sparks ca 1782.
