Frances Louise Ross Williams was named for her mother Helen Louise Smith Ross. Sometime before 1900 her father moved the family to St. Louis. Highly individualistic, she served as an Army nurse in WWI. Then by herself, she homesteaded 640 acres of land near Lay in Moffat County, Colorado.

We don't know how long she lived alone in this desolate land, but she eventually met Daniel H. Williams. Both were middle aged and neither had been married so when they were, they had everything they needed. Dan operated a college store in Boulder, Colorado. Eventually they sold the store and moved to Greeley, Colorado and lived there until they died, never realizing their dream to live in Colorado Springs.
