OK, now we're getting somewhere. Horace M. Willey left the Eastern Shore and md. a New York Gal, whose name I forget. He's in Conneticut in the 1920 or 1930 census (again I forget- but you can find him easy enough) His children on that census where all born in Conn.

As for Alfred, his family runs very quickly into my brickwall, John Willey md. to Margaret Higman. I would like to think that this John Willey is th second son of Absalom Willey, but there's no proof and His childrens names just don't match up with the ususal names. My line descends from Cannon's brother John and his son, Edwin.
