My gg-grandfather Lawrence Willard, born 1812, Graceham, MD moved to Dixon, IL in 1854. In the Dixon newspaper, a cousin found the following info: Frances E. Willard spoke at Franklin Grove Campground and visited her cousin, Larry Willard at nearby Dixon. Her father was Josiah Flint Willard, born 1805.
I found Josiah and his family in the 1860 census living in IL, Cook County, Evanston.
I haven't been able to find the link showing Larry and Josiah as cousins. The two families were born and lived in different states.
