I am responding because I recognize the story of Kirt and the water buffalo. My dad, David Deon Willmore, son of David Earl Willmore, son of Henry Willmore, used to tell me and my sibs this story. Dad also used to tell us that we should name one of our boys Gabriel after dad's uncle--dad said if we did he would get the boy a horn. I also note that Dad told a family story about his origins that stopped with Henry and someone else riding into Illinois on a mule with somebody who the family knew as "uncle Billy". Uncle Billy was a peacher according to dad. I just learned that my sister has a family bible, in which my dad apparently set down some of the foregoing and other info. I will get the info and can give to you if you wish.
