This is the information I have been able to find so far. I am working with a Tom Devon whom is a cousin of one of William Jr.'s children. We have uncovered quite a bit of information in a short time. The following is from Tom's Family Tree listed on Ancestry.com:

 

 

William L. Nesbitt, Sr.

William L. Nesbitt was born in England in about 1887 according to the 1930 US census records for Washington, DC where he was a resident. This same source listed his father as being born in England and his mother being born in Scotland. The census also listed William's date of arrival in the US as 1902, when he would have been about 15. From family tradition, he was from New York State before arriving in Washington in the early 1920s, there is also a tradition that stated that he came from Canada. If so, he may have arrived in Canada from England prior to 1902 as a young boy and then emmigrated to the US. At some time around 1914 or 1915 he married Minnie "Ruth" (maiden name unknown) who by family tradition was one-half blood Senaca Indian. The 1930 census listed Ruth as being born in New York with her father's nativity listed as New York and her mother's as Pennsylvania. By family tradition, her family was from the area around Elmira, NY. From the US census, three boys were living with them in 1930, William Lovejoy born in New York in 1917, Lloyd Fuller also born in New York in 1920 and Lynn Marvin born in Washington DC in 1924. The 1910 US census for Elmira, NY listed William (age 28) as being married to Evelyn (age 23) and having two children, boys, Laporte L. age 4 and R. (Robert) Sterling aged 6/12 months both being born in New York State. The years of marriage were 5, placing this marriage as taking place in 1905. William was listed as Can. (Canadian) English while his wife was from Pennsylvania. His occupation was that of Printer, Office.

William and Ruth bought a house and lot in Washington DC on 3519 17th St. NE in 1924. It was worth $9500 according to the US census. The 1926 Washington DC city directory, listed William as a printer with the Government Printing Office. The 1930 census has him occupied as "composer
US Gov.", which may mean a type setter. William was a dapper and friendly man from stories from his daughter in-law Eileen and her sister June, who gave them nice presents at Christmas. He died on 7 April 1946 at his home in Washington, DC. The obituary listed four sons, Robert S. of Merced, Calif.; William L. of Arlington, VA. and Lloyd F. and Lynn M. of Washington, DC.

 

Since the writing of the above: I have found that William Lovejoy Nesbitt was born William Ernest Stroud Lovejoy Jan. 29, 1878 to Thomas Lovejoy and Mary Ann Nisbet. William's father died when he was a boy and I found him in the 1901 England Census in a boys school in London. At some point he came to the US I believe via Canada. I still haven't found this yet. William also changed his last name to a different spelling of Nesbitt. I'm not sure why he didn't take the original spelling of his mothers name. This made finding the family a challenge but finally it all came together.

 

First you will find the information on the Lovejoy family that I have found so far and I will also be adding the information on the Nisbet family.

Notes for Thomas Lovejoy:

General Notes:

 

Unknown true name. William listed fathers first name as Thomas on Marriage certificate, but

William was listed on William Lovejoy's Death Certificate. So father's name maybe William

Thomas. Changed to Scotland from information for William Lovejoy's death certificate 9/6/07 -

found this information to be incorrect.
