Surnames: Delia Willey, Absolom Willey
Absolom Willey, possibly born in Pennsylvania and married to Alice Thorla, possibly from New Hampshire,had a daughter named Delia, born 1 Dec 1852 in Noble County, Ohio. Delia married John Steadman about 1873. I have almost no information on John and very little on Delia's ancestors. John and Delia eventually moved to Delphis, Iowa where they both died and were buried. Looking for more information on either or both of these individuals.

Surnames: Willey
While we are not familiar with Absolom, there may be a parallel with a Willey group that moved from N.H./Vermont just about 1840, settling first in Trumbull County, OH. We are assuming a family group of Thomas, Gilman, Woodbury Willey. We locate them later in Western Illinois and in southern Wisconsin through 1860's, BUT... the two sons of Woodbury arrived in Iowa in 1871 or so. We had assumed they moved 'on their own', but have just found several families linked with them by marriage with the same emigration pattern. Do you have any Jividen/Givedon or Easton relatives showing up?

May be a relation

I have a great deal of information on this Willey line back to the 1700's in Delaware - too much for this site - contact me off site at and I will gladly share what I have.
