Death: Mar. 12, 1908

Maggie was the first child to be born at the Woodland Home on April 13th, 1848. She was said to resemble her mother and later became a strong-willed, intelligent woman. She attended Baylor academy in Independence and studied writing. At seventeen she fell in love with Captain Weston Lafeyette Williams and they married at the Independence Baptist Church on October 17th, 1866. They had three sons and two daughters. After her husband's death, she moved to San Antonio to be near her daughter. Well known in cultural circles, she was a friend of Elizabet Ney, the noted sculptress. When she died on March 12th, 1906, the flag at the Alamo flew at half-mast and the bells of the city tolled in her honor.
