Birth: 1755, USA
Death: Aug. 2, 1831
Schoharie County
New York, USA

Revolutionary War Hero: Inscription on his obelisk reads "He with his compatriots John Paulding and Isaac VanWart on the 22nd of September 1780, arrested Major John Andre and found on his person treasonable papers in the handwriting of Gen. Benedict Arnold, who sought by treachery to surrender the military post of West Point into the hands of the enemy. In resisting the great bribes of their prisoner for his liberty, they showed their incorruptible patriotism; the American army was saved and our beloved Country became free." Williams died in Schoharie County, but the notable event occured in lower Westchester County. Statues and NY State historic markers designate the site in Tarrytown, NY.
