A connection is unlikely. William Wiley/Wildey was the son of John Walter Wildey, who permanently changed the name, and his 2nd wife Sarah Jane Lear. The family originated in the Hudson Valley, where it switched back and forth between Wildey & Wiley.... sometimes to Wyly or Wylie. Occasionally the name change was on purpose, but more often it was a case of a clerk not hearing the "d" in the name.
William split with his family before 1900 & went missing. There has been some speculation that he moved to MN, but only speculation.
