Yes, we are definitely related. Your grandfather Phil, or Bo as I knew him, was my dad's first cousin. Bo's sister Marguerite Stannard eventually lived across the street from the house I grew up in on Lover's Lane. My dad's father was John N. Willman Sr., who was Anna's brother. So if I calculated correctly we are 3rd cousins. I have been researching the Willman/Potter side of my tree and looking for Rev. Patriot's. But the Willman side has only been here since the mid-1800's. I have my tree on if you want to look at it. I have taken pics of the headstone of Charles & Francisca, who are buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, in St. Joe. I still haven't found out exactly when they arrived from Germany, why/how they moved from NY to MO. They did open up the Willman Wholesale Fruit Mkt. with Charles brothers's Leopold & Reinhold. Reinhold was also a medical doctor and did write 2 books which you can still find on Amazon. If you google him there is some info on him. Have you done any searching for info on this line and if so what did you find? Where do you live? I live in the Chicago area.
