"The Treat Family" by John Harvey Treat, published in 1893, page 468 reads, "Durious William Treat...born Dec. 31, 1838, in Youngstown, Mahoning Co., Ohio; married Oct. 9, 1860 at Millersburgh, Holmes Co., Ohio, Letitia Force, born Feb. 28, 1830, in Franklin, Wayne Co., Ohio, and daughter of William and Lucinda (Soward) Force. He united with the Methodist church, Feb. 16 1863. May 2, 1863, he enlisted in Co. (A), (166th)Reg't Ohio Vols., and served four months and eight days in the army during the Rebellion. Is a miner by occupation. Resides in What Cheer, Keokuk Co., Iowa. Children: William Hubert, b July 18, 1861 in Franklin, Wayne Co., Ohio..." Letitia, or Lettie, and Darius Treat had 4 more children after William in 1861: Matilda "Tillie" Lucinda, born 1862 in Prairie, Holmes Co., OH; Lewellyn James, 1865, Fredericksburgh, Wayne Co., OH; Lois Theanna Alta, 1867, Franklin, Wayne Co., OH; Rebecca A., 1871, Franklin, OH. There is an 18 year old Melvin Treat listed as their son on the 1870 Franklin, Wayne Co., OH census, but he is not mentioned in any other records found to date. The 1880 census lists their residence was Gore, Sumner Co., Kansas where Darious was a farmer. Sometime after that they moved to Washington Twp., Keokuk Co., Iowa. This is where Lettie died in June of 1893. Darius married his 2nd wife, Mary A. (Huntley) Williams, a widow, in 1895 in Appanoose Co., IA. The WPA gravestone transcriptions show that Lettie is buried in the McFarlan Cemetery with the inscription "Lettisha Treat w/o D.W."
