Nathan Williams sold his property in Indiana before moving his young family to Missouri. He supposedly received between $10,000 and $20,000 for his Indiana land holdings. Nathan entrusted the money to his second wife, Hannah Vinzant Williams, who sewed the money into the hem of her skirt for safety. To save money, the family also walked from Indiana to Missouri and did not purchase horses or other necessities until they arrved at the state they would call home for the remainder of their lives.
The following exerpt is from a letter written by my grandmother, Clora Vinzant Williams Johnson to Betty Berndt, dated 11 Nov 1971. The entire content of the letter is genealogy related, answering questions Betty had asked in an earlier letter.
"I know Nathan Williams married a Vinzant girl as their pictures hung on my living room wall, Euell has told me about it many a time. He always told me how good she was to him as a step-mother. He said his mother was an Indian girl."
