He married Susan Caldonia (Callie) Loner on 22 Sept 1882.

Will and Callie had ten children:

1. Margaret Rowena Babb (1883-1976) 2. Mary Delilah Babb (1885-1964) 3. Luther Marion Babb (1886-1961) 4. Thad Gilbert Babb (1888-1965) 5. Vaughn Albert Babb (1890-?) 6.

Callie died on 16 Dec 1900, and Will married a second time, to Sparta (Spartie) Walker on 8 Oct 1902.

Will and Spartie also had ten children:

Will is buried in the Mill Creek Cemetery in Whitfield County, Georgia, with his wives Callie and Spartie buried on either side of him.

I (Saralyn, the oldest granddaughter of Thad G. Babb, the oldest surviving son of Will Babb in 1965) was visiting my grandparents shortly after Thad's stepmother, Spartie, died, in January 1965, as I was on semester break from Sweet Briar College where I was a senior. It was I who suggested to my Granddaddy that I thought it would be a good idea to have a joint marker for Will and his 2 wives, with the marriage dates entered between Will and each wife. I was thrilled that my Granddaddy agreed with my suggestion and had the marker ordered that way. I have entered a photo of the marker, with Will lying between his two wives. Sadly, the marker is now becoming difficult to read. I tried to photograph the writing when I visited in Nov 2008, but the photo did not show the writing clearly.
