Surnames: Willey Hoyt Berry
I am trying to locate siblings and parents of George W Willey, born in NH abt Dec 1824. I believe his middle name to be Washington.

He married Mary Jane Berry (abt 1822 - abt 1860) on 11 Oct 1845 and had seven children:
Tobias B. Willey
George F. Willey
Mary Olive Willey - married Joseph William Cobb
Charles L. Willey
True William Willey - married Josephine Harris
Jessie Willey - married Joseph C. Perkins
Sarah J. Willey

He then married Olive Hoyt (02 Apr 1825 - 14 Mar 1905) and had another five children:
Georgietta Willey - married Freeman Downs, then Augustus Leet
Frank Lester Willey - married Eva Watson
Lillian B. Willey - married Orrison James Brown
Eva B. Willey - married George Flagg
Elizabeth Idella Willey - married Arthur Herbert Brown

He lived most of his life in Barrington, NH, but I show him in 1910 (at age 86) living in Dover, NH.

Any help would be very appreciated!

There is a remote possibility my line of Willeys is connected to yours. I descend from a George Washington Willey born 16 Jul 1794 (in the NE, Maine?), died 6 Jan 1844 in Potomac, Vermillion County, Illinois. Married Mary Jane Willey(maiden name unknown) about 1811, and had 6 childred. Abigail - 1812, Huldah 1815, Docia -1817, George Jr. - 1821, Martha Ann - 1823, and Sally or Sarah - 1826. His wife died giving birth to Sally. George Jr. may be the connection.

George (Senior) remarried 24 Jun 1827 ( Minerva Jane Tilson or Tillison) and went on to have 11 more children before his death in 1844. I descend from this marriage, son Joseph Andrew Willey 1833, the fourth child of the marriage. George died in Illinois, and his second wife went on to marry again, but had no more children.

If you feel my line is a possible connection, I will be happy to share what I have with you. I do not know much about the first marriage other than the children. I have found nothing to determine the outcome of the children from the first marriage when the second marriage took place. There is a gap in this part of the information.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your response! It is curious that your George Jr. has a birth year near mine. But a few questions for clarification:

1) My George was born in Barrington, NH (according to a wedding record I have). I also have other records just listing NH as his birth state. Was your George Jr. born in NH?

2) Also from these records, my George's parents' birth states were listed as NH as well. Was your George Sr. or Mary Jane born in NH?
