I think that marriage you mentioned in 1919 is for their son. It just so happened that he married a girl with the same name as his mother:

Maine, Marriage Records, 1705-1922 about Lester Augustus Willett
Name:        Lester Augustus Willett, age 24, Laborer, b. 1895 Dickey, ME
Spouse: Carrie Walker, age 18, b. 1901 Little Black River, ME
Marriage Date:        24 Dec 1919
Marriage Place:        Caribou
Registration Place:        Caribou, Aroostook
Father: Archie Willett, of Caribou, ME, Laborer, b. St-Francis, ME
Mother: Cassie Walker, b. Little Black River, ME
Spouse Father:        James Walker, of Little Black River, ME, Laborer, b. Little Black River, ME
Spouse Mother:        Annie Duvalle, b. Little Black River, ME

Here is a marriage for son, Richard:

Maine, Marriage Records, 1705-1922 about Richard A Willett
Name:        Richard A Willett, age 24, b. 1894 Caribou, ME, Sailor in U.S.N.
Spouse: Ida Mary Lloyd, age 21, b. Seymour, Conn
Marriage Date:        15 Jul 1918
Marriage Place:        Caribou
Registration Place:        Caribou, Aroostook
Father: Archie Willett of Caribou, ME, Laborer, b. St-Francis, ME
Mother: Carrie Walker, b. Little Black River, ME
Spouse Father:        Thomas D Lloyd, foreman, ? factory, b. Conn
Spouse Mother:        Emma Rolmer, deceased, b. NY

So, Archie Willett/Ouellette may have been born in St-Francois-Xavier-de-Madawaska, New Brunswick OR St-Francis, Aroostook County, Maine. Probably the former. Sorry I could not find his marriage nor birth record. Hope this helps. Annie
