Daniel Willard "Uncle Dan"

Daniel Willard

January 28, 1861 to July 6, 1942

It is family tradition, passed father to son, that honor never goes out of fashion and that finding and helping decent people at a fair price is the only way to run a railroad.

May I be at least a little bit like my great grandfather Uncle Dan and still more like my father, Daniel Willard III.

Here are a few websites to learn a little more about "Uncle Dan":

If you are, or think you might be, anywhere in the "Willard" genealogy, I would like to hear from you and learn about you and your family. Of course, the same goes for anyone who is a "Zeller" or a "McNeal" or a "Beale" or any others of my extended family in all your splendid variety.

Any good I have done have been with the support and character of my family; my mistakes are my own.

Hopefully, this is the start of a more detailed website about all things Daniel Willard, so my own efforts to "run a railroad" do not dim his greater efforts. I would appreciate all ideas.

Email me at dswlaw@willardlaw.com. God grant me the time or the way to respond.
