After the death of their mother, the children of Eli and Harriett Willits were raised by Levi Willits, son of William & Mary Willits, grandson of Isaac & Elizabeth Willits, and Jesse Willits' nephew. The History of Mercer County, 1882 tells us Levi raised Harriett's four children. Levi Willits was married to Harriett Drury's sister Clarinda Drury, so there was a double family connection.
Daughter Maria Elvira Willits married Anthony Burdick 6/21/1858 in Mercer County.
Son John Burns Willits had married Amanda Boyd, daughter of James and Hester (Ruby) Boyd on 1/1/1855 in Wayne County, Indiana.
