From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Willard S. Littlefield or Stephen Willard Littlefield was born 12 November 1849 at Sanford, Maine, the son of Jonas Clough Littlefield and Selinda (Willard) Littlefield, who were born at Wells, Maine, and Sanford, Maine, respectively.

On 13 December 1890 at Springvale, Maine, Willard married Ella M. Morrison, daughter of Elisha and Nancy Ellen (Hooper) Morrison.  Ella was born about June 1861 at Shapleigh, Maine.

The couple farmed at Sanford, Maine, and raised at least one child, daughter Marion Arline Littlefield, and possibly a daughter who died in infancy.
