There are numerous people from this family buried in the Sutton Village Cemetery, VT....and yes it seems he had several wives.

Here are transcriptions from the cemetery headstones:

John Willey
son of Micajah & Dolly E. Willey
Dec. 30, 1820
Oct. 3, 1838

Dolly Whilley
Dau. of Micajah & Dolly E. Willey
Mar. 16, 1827
May 10, 1837

Olive Whilley
Dau. of Micajah & Sarah Willey
May 5, 1831
Sept. 8, 1843

Sarah -----
Wife of Micajah Willey
Sept. 5, 1804
May 6, 1851

Dolly Emerson
Wife of Micajah Willey
Aug. 14, 1827

Micajah Willey
Sept. 14, 1799
May 5, 1889

John Willey [father of Micajah?]
Sept. 3, 1774
Oct. 1, 1863

Deborah Emerson [mother of Micajah?]
Wife of John Willey
Sept. 1, 1774
Oct. 21, 1863

Here is the web link:

It also seems probable that Sarah B. was Sarah Bean.... I see from other researchers that the middle name of Hannah daughter of Micajah and Sarah B. was "Hannah Bean Whilley" ~ it was quite common for children's middle names to be the maiden name of their mothers, including female children. Apparently Hannah Bean Whilley married [1] William Tibbits and [2] Asa Taft. And, "Melissa B." might be another name for Sarah.....

Here is another link to another researcher who seems to have done extensive work on the Whilley family;

Good luck, hope this is helpful
