Pictures from William Henry Willard's family

(son of Martin Willard and Mary "Polly" Lindsey)

William Henry Willard, 1829-1864  (named for grandfather, Henry Willard was born Aug 11, 1829, Tywappity twp., Cape Girardeau Co, MO;
Hw married Jan. 21, 1848 in Benton Co., Mo. to Mary Fletcher (b 1834, NC/VA?); in 1850 they were in Henry Co., Mo. near his parents (though his children, Elizabeth & Mart were supposedly born in 1850 & 1852 in Benton Co, MO);
I don't have any record of him being involved in the Civil War, but if he was he must have been conflicted. He lived in Oregon Co, which was a Confederate sympathizing county and his brother John fought for the South. On the other hand his older brother Squire lived around Springfield, a Union stronghold, and was a Union supporter (not sure if Squire was in the army).
Henry died in1864 (abt 36 years old) on a trip to Arkansas and was buried beside the road. (It makes one wonder if the death was bushwhacker related, since that was so common in the area.) People in southern Missouri often went down to Arkansas to work (picking cotton or other things) to make a little money.

 Fourteen years later, Mary remarried in 1878 Oregon Co, Mo. to John Hall and then moved to Christian Co, Mo. where she was in 1880 living close to Squire Willard. Mary & John were still in Christian Co, Mo. in 1900, but by 1902 she had remarried again to Joseph Hoar. In 1910 Mary and Joseph were living with her son Nathan in Douglas Co, Mo.
Mary died about 1918 and was buried in an unmarked grave in Lone Star Cem, Taney Co, Mo.
[Many family birthdates listed in Family Bible.]
