Willis B. H. Clements (Clemmons, etc.) was born in Tennessee in 1810, married
"M. West" (from a son's death certificate), was the father of three children:
Catherine M. (1832-1905), John M., and Carey Monroe Clements.

Willis Clemens is on the 1840 census of Bedford Co, TN near Jane Clemens,
thought to be his mother. He sold land to his believed brother, George W.
Clements, which joined land "sold by John C. Clements." In 1840 Willis had no woman
of an age to be his wife in his home. In 1850 Willis is in Nashville living
in the home of Martha Cowgill. They were married in the 1850s. George W.
Clements is also in Nashville in 1850, living near Willis on the east side of
town. Jane is living with George. It is possible that Jane is the Jane Pulley
who married John Clemments in Wilson County, TN in 1809. I would like to
confirm that.
