From Canandaigua Chronicle 5 September 1906

Caroline Townsend Gorham, wife of Edward C. Williams, died at her home in Main street north, Sunday, after a severe illness of several weeks. Mrs. Williams had been in failing health for two years and death was due to angina pectoris. Mrs. Williams was a member of one of the oldest families of Western New York. She was the daughter of William W. Gorham and Betsy Parrish, and a descendant of the original Gorham of the Phelps and Gorham purchase. She was born in Canandaigua March 12, 1852, and has always been a resident of this village. She is survived by her husband, one daughter, Miss Margaret B. Williams of this village; and one son, Andrew P. Williams of Pittsburg, Pa. She had a wide circle of friends, who cherished her friendship because of its loyalty and devotion, and her death is sincerely mourned. The funeral services will be held from the home this afternoon at 3 o'clock.
