rachel,
i just happened to come across your posting. i am not a cather, but willa is in my family tree. i do know that willa's parents were charles fetique cather and mary virginia boak. her grandparents on her father's side were william cather and emily ann caroline smith. willa was born "next door" to my family's farm in what is now called gore, virginia. it used to be called back creek valley. her home place still stands and is called willow shade. i have little else on the cathers, but i can give you more information on the smith's for several more generations if you are interested.
