Willie's wife's name was Lillian Ann White. Her parents called her by nickname, "Lillie," but after her first marriage and second and both 1930 & 1940 census records, she uses her first name, Lillian. I am past 70 and we have always known them as Willie and Lillian. However, I noticed on the marker, it is shown as Lillie. What can I say?
Hatfield Grave Marker Photo Dennis, Thank you very much for posting the grave marker photo of Lillian and Willie Hatfield. He was my dad's first cousin. I never knew his name was James William Hatfield until I started researching more in depth. He never went by James, William, or Bill that I know. He was always called Willie by his mother, family, and other relatives. His son was always called "Little Bill" or just Bill.
If you don't mind. I would like to leave the nickname as just Willie. The photo speaks for itself and for whoever created the marker. Perhaps "Willie" would have been too long for symmetry.
