     Needham Willis was born on 11 April 1820. He married Julia E. Brock on 19 June 1851. Needham Willis died on 10 July 1904 at age 84; "It is with a sad heart, that we write in rememberance of one we loved so well, our dear grandfather, Needham Willis. He was born April 11th 1820, and died July 10th 1904. He was 84 years old, when the blessed Lord called him home. He joined the Primitive Baptist Church, about 45 years ago, and lived a consecrated member until death called him up higher.
As long as he was able to go to church his seat was never vacant, but he became unable to attend, he was confined to his room about four years ago, and he suffered so much in his old age. He has gone to dwell in the arms of Jesus, although it was hard to give him up, but we have a sweet hope of meeting him in Heaven, where parting will be known no more.
We stood by him and done all that we could, but there was one, above us, who could take him out of his suffering. He had a place for him to fill in Heaven.
He was a good father, a loving husband, and a kind neighbor, ever ready to lend a helping hand to the poor and needy.
He leaves a wife, six children, and one brother, and a host of grandchildren and great grandchildren to mourn his loss, but we mourn not, as those that have no hope, for we believe he has gone to that place where our Heavenly Father has prepared for all his children, who trust him, and he died as he lived, trusting in God; but it is hard to stand by and see one leave us, and know we will never see him no more in this world, for he cannot come back to us, but love can go to him; and may our blessed Savior prepare his dear children to meet him around the great white thrown [i.e. throne], where parting will be no more, where they will never have to say Goodby, Papa, where they can be together for ever and ever. What a happy meeting that will be, when we meet our loved ones that have gone on before. ... Written by his grand daughter. Cora Cayton." (New Bern Weekly Journal, 9 September 1904.)
