Hetty Willis is mentioned as a daughter of Abraham in his father James' will. However, no other record for her, or another daughter, Eliza, has been found after that. In the 1800 census, the record shows one daughter above 10 years old, so at least one of the two girls had died before 1800.

There is a report of a Hetty Willis Broom marrying someone in the South who had been confused with Jacob's daughter Ester Willis (also called Hetty). This second Hetty Willis could be the daughter of Abraham.
