RE: Euna O. Goodwin
Hi Diane- I have added dates and relationships to her memorial, as opposed to transferring. She does connect to my family, as well. Please email me if you would like to discuss. I am happy to add other linked family members as well.

RE: Livingston
Yes I have. I also went to Schoharie, New York, but unfortunately did not have a lot of time. I would love to go back. Diane, have a great day. Thanks for the contact. Lisa

I have in my records that her maiden name was Russell, and that she was born in New Hampshire. I do not have her parent's name at this time. I am researching Livingstons that descended from Jacob and Sarah (House) Livingston of Schoharie County, New York.

Have a great day. Lisa

Daniel Wayne Williams
Diane, I am Daylon Thompson Cross, and my mother Ruth Garmon Thompson married Mr. Daniel W. Williams in 1961, when I was twelve years old. When they married, Mr. Williams closed up his small white frame house and came to live with us in the house that our father (Horace B. Thompson, Sr.) had built for us in the late 40's. At that time, my brother Brown was about 16, and my sister Linda was about 20. We gladly welcomed Mr. Daniel into our lives. He was a wonderful, honest, pleasant, upstanding man of great character and wisdom. Having been born in 1896, he had a lot to tell us about "old times" growing up as the son of a Primitive Baptist minister. I remained in the home until I left for college in 1967, but I continued to visit home and enjoy his fellowship. He was very good to us and to our mother. At Valentine's time, he would buy my mother a large, heart-shaped box of chocolates -- and he would often have a smaller one for me!

82488280 Williams , see Samuel
S.B. Williams, who is holding the important and responsible position of national pension agent for Jasper county, was born in Montgomery county, Illinois, April 1, 1834. The grandfather of our subject, Joseph Williams, was a native of Kentucky, and was there reared and married. He afterward became one of the early pioneers of Montgomery county, Illinois. His life occupation was that of a farmer. The family is of Welsh descent. David Williams, the father of our subject, was also a native of Kentucky, but when eight years of age removed with his parents to Illinois, a location being made in Montgomery county, where David M. followed agricultural pursuits. He subsequently took up his abode in Kansas, where he passed away in 1861. He was prominent in the ranks of the Republican party, and for many years served his county as a justice of the peace. He voted for Fremont in 1856. In his religious affiliations he was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church. The mother of our subject, nee Mary Bartlett, was born and reared in Kentucky, and lived to the age of seventy-two years. Her father, Samuel Bartlett, was a native of the Old Dominion and of English descent. He subsequently left the state of his birth and took up his residence in Kentucky. Unto David M. and Mary (Bartlett) Williams were born five children who grew to years of maturity.
S.B. Williams, the eldest child in the above family, was reared and educated in the county of his nativity, and his education was there received in the district and select schools. He remained under the parental roof until twenty-three years of age, and after reaching his twenty-first year he followed school teaching until the breaking out of the Civil war, when, his patriotic spirit being aroused, he enlisted for service in Company D, Thirty-second Iowa Volunteer Infantry, as a private. He entered the army in 1862, and for three years served his country as a gallant and intrepid soldier. He was with A.J. Smith’s Sixteenth Army Corps, and participated in the battles of Little Rock, Helena and Brownsville, Arkansas, where he was shot through the left breast, and for thirteen months was confined at Little Rock and Murfreesboro. He was then sent north to Camp Douglas, Chicago, where he was engaged in guard duty, and was honorably discharged at Cairo, Illinois, to which place he had been sent to do guard duty. After the close of hostilities and when the country no longer needed his services Mr. Williams returned to his home in Montgomery county, where he again took up the quiet duties of the farm, also teaching school during the winter months. He followed the dual occupation until about 1873, when he went to Salina, Kansas, there following agricultural pursuits for two years. On the expiration of that period he came to Jasper county, Missouri, locating on a farm in Duval township, where he followed farming through the summer months and taught school during the winters at Cedar Bluffs, Sunnyside and Alba. In 1885 he located on a farm in Mineral township, remaining there until 1890, when he took up his residence in Alba. Here he has since remained, and his genial nature and true worth have gained and retained for him the love and esteem of many friends.
In 1856 occurred the marriage of Mr. Williams and Miss Mary A. Jones, a native of Harrison county, Indiana, but reared in Montgomery county, Illinois. She is a daughter of Hardy and Matilda (Nicholson) Jones, who became early settlers of Montgomery county, Illinois, and were of Irish and English descent. Mr. and Mrs. Williams have become the parents of six children, namely: Mary M., the wife of George McClellan, a painter of Hillsboro, Illinois; Martha E., the wife of George Morris, a machinist of Bellville, this state; Joseph C., deceased; Dora A., the wife of W.E. Robbins, whose sketch appears in this volume; Ida M., the wife of Samuel Cather, who is engaged in business with Mr. Robbins; and Orlando, a resident of Jasper county. In his political affiliations Mr. Williams is a staunch supporter of Republican principles, and in 1856 he cast his first presidential vote for Fremont, having ever since continued an active worker in the party’s ranks. While a resident of Montgomery county, Illinois, he held the office of justice of the peace for eight years, and in Jasper county he has filled that responsible position for fourteen years. He has also served as township clerk and has held many other positions of honor and trust. At one time he was a candidate for assessor, but as the county had a Democratic majority of about six hundred votes he was defeated, although he ran ahead of his ticket, coming within one hundred and seven votes of winning the election. He is now serving as national pension agent.
In his social relations Mr. Williams is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, holding membership in Post No. 559, in which he has served as senior vice-commander. He was made a Mason in ‘60’s, in Donaldson, Lodge No. 255, of Illinois. Religiously he is a member of the Friends church.

Frank visited his son with his 2nd wife and children after James A. was married . My aunt remembered them but no names. She said he was a preacher in Westville and Heath Springs.

Your dates do not match James Andrew Williams, nor does his wife unless this is the 2nd wife.

Death of J. A. Williams James A. Williams, who for the past five years had been making his home in Rock Hill, died at his home in that city on Saturday last following an illness of about a year, and his remains were brought to Westville Sunday afternoon for burial in the cemetery at Bethany church of which he was a member for a number of years.

Mr. Williams, who passed his sixty-fourth year June 12, was born and reared in Kershaw county near the town of Kershaw and resided in this vicinity until a few years ago. He was reared by Mrs. Ann Thorn, of the Hanging Rock community, now in her ninetieth year, who visited him recently at Rock Hill, and was able to attend his funeral also. She took charge of him when he was an orphan of tender years.

The funeral services were conducted in Bethany Baptist church, the following ministers taking part in the services: Rev. W. J. Sprinkle, pastor of the Northside Baptist church, Rock Hill who accompanied the remains; Rev. A. E. Fulner, a former pastor of Mr. Williams; Rev. P. E. Blackmon pastor of Bethany church, and Rev. J. M. Neal, of Kershaw. The remains were laid to rest with the ceremonies of the Woodmen of the World, of which order Mr. Williams was a member, in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends, a number of whom accompanied the family from Rock Hill.

Mr. Williams is survived by his widow, four sons, four daughters and an adopted daughter--Kershaw Era.
(Camden Chronicle, Camden, S.C. Aug. 5, 1927)

He was born 12 Jun 1863.

If you are right, I have gotten over one of my brick walls as his death certificate has DK as mother's name.

Diane, my grandmother was Nettie (WILLIAMS) CAMPBELL, sister of Minnie Lee (WILLIAMS) CAMPBELL (the two sisters married CAMPBELL brothers). Nettie, Minnie, and their siblings were first cousins of your grandmother, Effie Fraser (RIGSBY) WILLIAMS. Nettie's father (Wm. Nathaniel WILLIAMS) and Effie's mother (Nancy Augusta WILLIAMS RIGSBY) were brother & sister. I've been an avid researcher of genealogy and family history for about 45 years--I would love to correspond with you about our mutual families!

Hi Diane,

I found your name attached to a link on William Hermsprong Williams. His son Charley is my great-great grandfather. Charlie's son Elzie Bell Williams is my great father. His daughter Dottie Williams Willis is my grandmother and her daughter, Delores Willis Fehrmann is my mother.
I have been helping my Uncle Richard with tracing our ancestry and I have learned so many fascinating things. Just want to touch base, we must be cousins quite a few times removed!

Kind Regards,

Diane Sundberg

RE: Garrett
I found Lillie Chamlies listed as Lillie Chamblies


DIED 13 OCT. 1938, AGE 50.

Lillie was the second wife of E. Wheeler Chamblies. Her first husband was Mr. Morgan. When Lee (Crews) Chamblies died Lillie Morgan became the housekeeper for the family and married Wheeler, June 29, 1935. It was the second marriage for both. Lillie was age 47 at the time of the marriage. She was born in Alabama. At her death she had no family other than her husband. It is believed that the Chamblies family moved from Huntsville after the death of Lillie.
Sources: Marriage record Vol. 63, p. 16. Obituary, The Huntsville Times, Oct.13, 1938, p.11.
Now Lillie was born Virgia(e) Lillie Morgan, she married Edgar Hugh Garrett in Nov. 17 1908, They had several children. It's a sad story of a split family, but any way, she remarried E.W. Chamlies (Chamblies) June 29 1935. All the dates are correct and information from her son Karl has told in the past.

RE: Garrett
You are a Godsend, I have been looking for Lillie for years. I have her showing that her maiden name was Garrett when her husband filled out the death certificate, Apparently her second husband didn't know much about her past. He was E.W.Chamlies and they married around Huntsville, AL. Thank you so much, this is more than I have found in years!
