Williams fatherwas born I think in upstate New York.My mother ,Frances, said she thinks that the great grandfather was born there too. My Aunt tried to trace the Family name and went so far and could not get any information.Out of 9 siblings, my mom and Aunt Florence are the only ones left. I remember a pauline and an Anna. I think one of them married a "Charlie" who was traveling on union business.One of the Aunts on that side used to raise canary's. Also one of them used to bring outgrown clothing to Minnie for the kids to wear. Also my grandfather ,William, used to work on the railroad.
