You need to supply more information on your grandparents in order for anyone to trace ancestors. Full names, birthdates or approximations, names of their parents or siblings... anything you know could be helpful in a genealogy trace. I get 12,495,151 matches for Bell in Harker's Island, NC. Could we narrow it down a bit?

Willis is a very popular name down there. My husbands family tree has a few Willis' but you need lots more info! He has Harker's and Lewis' too.

I suggest contacting the local library. Harker's Island was pretty much 'family land' up until a few decades ago. There are many, many, many Willis' there. Most are related.
