In the 1860 census for Iowa, Cedar County, Iowa twp, he was a 51 year old wagon maker, born in NY.In his household were daughter Amanda age 15 born IN, daughter Mary F. O. age 12 born IN and son Dyer age 10 born IN
with an Oscar F. Williams age 26 farm laborer born in NY
I cannot find any of these folks in 1870 nor any death records (too early for Iowa.) They may have gone to California but I cannot find them. Finding a death record for Adin Williams that gives his mother's name would make a ton of people very happy. She is a major brick wall.
This Williams family came from Hartland Vermont, to Essex NY, to Butler Ohio to Ripley Indiana.If anyone recognizes this family, I have a ton of info on Adin Williams' ancestors.
