I am not related, just sharing. Do you have the Civil War records? If not, you can write for ALL records, the military and PENSION records for Willard. They can be full of family information. There are TWO Willard Riggs...one is Willard A. which is probably your relative.

It appears to me that Frances is the mother of George and Willard Augustus. Frances was born in Maine c. 1822.

Here is ANOTHER D. DUDLEY...I do not know if they are related, but this is an Ohio census and two individuals, Frances and D. Dudley live next door to each other and both are from Maine. I would at least "guess" there is a relationship.
