This work offers a reasonable outline of the William Willett family from its earliest traditional ancestry to the time of publication. Census records, Bible records, marriage records, birth and death records, newspaper articles, obituaries, manuscripts and biographies have been researched, abstracted and compiled. Information has also been gleaned from family history and oral history sources. Original spelling has been maintained and nicknames have been included. Genealogical records are grouped by family heading, with a narrative section and a list of children following each heading. Entries include birth date, place of birth, names of parents, place of residence, date of marriage, name of spouse, date of death, place of death, and miscellaneous biographical information as available. Short transcripts of census records, and brief extracts from obituaries and other documents are frequently included.
