Lorie, This is what I know based on the census info. Leonard's father was Benjamin B. Willey and his mother was Lucy G. Holden. Leonard had 7 siblings. In the 1850 census, the following are listed in Barre VT, (where we know our ancestors came from) Mary A.age 14, Preston B.age 11(really Benjamin P.),Lucy C. age 8,Hannah age 6,Leonard age 5, Asa age 2, Anna age 4 months. In the 1860 census appears another brother, Herbert age 7. We know that Hannah and Asa died as chidren based on cemetary records. They are buried near their parents. It would also appear that Hannah and Asa were named after there Grandparents, Benjamin's father and mother, who are also buried near the rest of the family. In the 1900 census, it states that Elouise was born in Jan. 1867 and that she was married 12years. I have seen somewhere on a documnet that I cannot find now, that she was born in Hyde Park, Vermont, maiden name being Scott. Leonard's brother, Benjamin P. Willey was a civil war veteran who fought with the 2nd Vermont. He is buried in Barre VT, but not in the same cemetary as his parents.It appeared that Leonard and Benjamin were close because they lived near each other on the same street at one point and were listed as carpenters in business directories in the late 1800's in the Barre VT area. Our branch of the Willey family can trace it's roots back to East Haddam CT. and New London CT. as we are descendants of Issac Willey of Connecticut and his son John of East Haddam. Judah Willey, originally from East Haddam CT, was Leonard's great grandfather. He moved to Barre from Wilbraham MA. We had 5 generations of our ancestors who lived in Barre VT starting with Judah, and ending with Forrest Willey Sr. Now if we can only find Leonard and Elouise. They disappear after the 1900 census. Also Mary E. Willey, Leonard's daughter from his first marriage to Eva A.? Still lots of questions and people to find.
