<div>**General Willis Hargrave**</div>
<div>1764 - 1846</div>
<div>Son Of William Sr. & Unknown Bishop Hargrave</div>
<div>He and wife Jane Brown relocated to Logan County, Kentucky, in 1790\. Here they had nine children, Samuel, Margaret, Seth, Nancy, George, Rachel, Lee, Light, and Jane. The latter two died in infancy. Willis moved his family to Gallatin County in 1808 where, along with daughter Margaret and her husband James Ratcliff, they settled near the U.S. Salines at Equality. Willis, who had been active in the Kentucky Militia and was a lieutenant in 1797 and a captain by 1803, engaged his service in the War of 1812 mostly guarding settlements against native attack. He served in the 3rd Regiment, Captain Hargraves Company. Willis Hargrave was an important figure in early southeastern Illinois history. By 1812, four years after moving to Gallatin County, Willis Hargrave was made a member of a three-man commission, which included Leonard White and Phillip Trammel, to set legal boundaries for the U.S. Salines at Equality. Hargrave and William McHenry signed the Illinois Constitution on August 26, 1818\. Willis Hargrave asserted his wishes to legalize slavery in the state. Hargrave was accused of establishing a proslavery organization and conspiring to bring slaves into the state. In December of 1823, Hargrave held a meeting of the "Friends of a Convention" aimed at amending the constitution to allow slavery. The slavery question was a statewide concern for many citizens and it appears that Hargrave was very much involved in the heated debate. No changes were made, however, and Illinois remained a free state. Willis died in 1846 at the age of 76\.</div>
