Hi Shelley, my wife is a descendant of Benjamin Williams and I am searching for more information about him, his wife and their families. After reading your posting, I wasn't sure who his wife was. Was it Mary or Martha? I previously thought it was Mary (or Patty) Johnson, born in 1784 at Burlington VT. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. could you please communicate with me directly at that email address, and let's compare notes about this family that eventually moved from to Kane Co. Illinois and then on to Oregon.
