  1. My mother was Margaret Lee, niece of Mrs. O.D. Lee, and her husband (my father) Robert H Willis, a WWII bomber pilot. Mr. Porter Berry Sr. and his family were great friends and supporters of my mother when she went to high school in Harrisonburg. I visited as a child when Mr. Porter Berry was lock master for the Ouachita River. I came across this researching my memoirs.
