Worcester Willey 1808-1899

Looking for primary sources on Rev. Worcester Willey, son of Darius Willey, who was a missionary to the Cherokee from 1845-1871(?). Particularly interested in letters, memoirs, etc. describing his experiences during the Civil War in the Cherokee Nation. I have recently read "A Tale of Home and War" (aka "Addie and I Among the Cherokees"). I'm also interested in his daughter Adele (Addie), b. 1847, who returned to the Indian Territory in later life and became a teacher in the Muscogee (Creek) Nation.
