No problem, have a good day!
I agree that it could be Willard. I don't have a memorial for him so nothing for me to correct.
|InSearchOf||Derivatives of Elizabeth|
Elizabeth (means consecrated to God or God's oath): Derivatives are Eliza, Elissa, Elsie, Elise, Elisa, Elisabet (Elisabet is the original Greek spelling), Elspie, Lisabette, Lisabetta, Lisbet, Lisbeth, Alisa, Lisa, Lisel, Liselle, Lesetta, Lisette, Lizzie, Lizzy, Lib, Libby, Libbie, Liz, Lisa, Tetsy, Tetty, Tibbie, Beth, Bethia, Betsy, Betsey, Bettie, Bettina, Betty, Bet, Bess, Bessie, and Betsy. Elspeth is the Scottish form; Else and Elisabeth are French forms; Lusa is the Finish form, Erzsebet is the Hungarian form; Elisabeth and Lise are German forms.
They had a son named William L as far as I can tell. I don't see a Willard in the home in the 1880 census, only William L.
As for her name, if you look at her memorial and obituary it states her maiden name is Coontz
