Willene’s maiden name is really Robinson, and was the daughter of Francis Truman Robinson and Mellie Alma Ellzey. Truman was the son of James Robert Robinson and Mary Elizabeth “Molly” McLaurin. Mellie was the daughter of John Clinton Ellzey and Caldwell Calhoun “Callie” Welborn.

Also, Faith has Irish and Scottish, as well as remote Cornish roots.

Correction:
Conway is the name of three Irish clans!, as is Shealy(shelly) so I think Irish should be in there somewhere!
