Thanks for your information. I do think there is some relationship between the Wille/Willie and Clapsattle families, but I don't have Martha's maiden name as Clapsattle. In the 1865 Porter Township, Niagara County, NY, census, it showed Edward Willie, 41, born NY; Martha Willie, 24, born Canada; Berdell Willie, 7, Lorenzo Willie, 5, Elsebeth/Elsworth Willie, 2-1/2; and Henry J. DARLING, 33, born Vermont, brother-in-law. He was the brother of Martha.
I have Martha's maiden name as DARLING, daughter of John and Laura. She is listed in the 1850 Wilson, Niagara County, census, with her parents and siblings, Henryetta, John N., Almira and Mary M. I do have the following, which shows some relationship between the Wille and Clapsattle families:

Blanche Wille, 1884-1886
Elizabeth A. Wille, 1857-1953
Burdell A. Wille, 1857-1940
Mother, Martha, 1839-1925
Father, Edward, 1824-1904
CLAPSATTLE, Hannah Clapsattle, 1830-1919
Eliza Clapsattle, 1835-1933

So, there must be some connection between these two families. What information do you have regarding the Clapsattles? Thanks again for your info.
