Wife of Lawson G. Williams
My great-aunt, Willie Albertene Allbright
(B: 1902), married Lawson G. Williams on June 22, 1917 in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. Several years after his death, my great-aunt, nicknamed Tene, remarried.
As a child, I only knew that she had been married before to a man who was in WWI and who died just a few months after their marriage. When I was older, I also learned that he had given her a gold lavaliere as a wedding gift. I always thought his death so soon after their marriage was so sad and the gift of the lavaliere so romantic. I suppose that's why my great-aunt later gave the lavaliere to me. I've only recently, thanks to the internet, learned her first husband's name.
Glad to be able to share the sad, romantic story with Lawson's decendents.

Lawson Williams

I'm working on a book about the soldiers listed on the Duncan Park Memorial in Spartanburg. Lawson is one of those. His military records indicate that when he died the army notified his wife who wa living in San Antonio, Texas. Do you know anything about her (name, anything)?

Also do you have a full list of his siblings?

Below is what I have found in his military records:

He entered the Regular Army 20 January 1913 at Columbus Barracks, Ohio, as a private in the Motor Truck Co., 1st Quartermaster Corps. He was promoted to Corporal 16 October 1916. His unit became part of the American Expeditionary Forces.
Lawson died 2 February 1918 as a result of a railroad accident. He was buried in Sandy Plains Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Tryon, Polk Co., N.C. His epitaph reads: All things to the glory of God.
The Army notified his wife who was living on RFD 7, San Antonio, Texas. Her
