Records from Germany via Helmut Hunn say Michael Willott was born 6 Jul 1824.

Circuit court records say... James Turnbaugh sued Michael in 1857 over the following incident. Around Aug 12, 1857, a 16 or 17 yr old Zerr boy, working for Willott, aggrivated a horse owned by Turnbaugh and drove the horse off "unlawfully and maliciously" by hollering, etc. away from the gate. Turnbaugh confronted the boy and told him to stop, but Zerr answered w/ obscene and insulting language. Willott purportedly told Zerr to do so. Turnbaugh and others who looked for the horse lost the use of 2 horses for 5 weeks during a busy season. He wanted $50 in damages. Willott later appealed.

1880 has a servant and farm laborer, Richard HUNT, a 16 yr. old black male.
