This is what it says of Thomas 2) WILLETS: vol 2, p694-5

#2 "Thomas 2) WILLETS, the eldest son of Richard 1) WILLETS, was the
only child that lived beyond 1703. He md abt 1670 Dinah TOWNSEND a
daughter of Richard 1) TOWNSEND and his wife Deliverance COLES; It is
probable that his nine children were born in Jericho and his name
appears often on the town records of Oyster Bay. As he did ot become
active in the Quaker Church there until abt 1691, we have no baptisms
for any of his children and the birth years shown here have been
estimated. It is said that his four sons married HALLOCK sisters
althought the HALLOCK genealogy give the name of but one of these, Mary;
from other sources the names of Catherine, Clemence and Margaret have
been secured. Thomas
moved to Secatague (Sequatague), later Islip, Long Island, NY whre he
died 15th 4 month 1714 in his 65th year. According to his son's Bible
record, his widow Dinahdied 18th 10th month 1732 age 81 eyars. For his
contemporary, Col. Thomas 2) Willett of Flushing Long Island, see this
issue of THE RECORD p83."
