Bio and Links
I became interested in genealogy after my Father passed away. I felt a need to "find my roots". Find a Grave has been so helpful to me in my search. Obituaries hold a wealth of information, and often allow me to find a "link" to reconnect parents and families.

If you are related and I have a memorial for one of your loved ones, please contact me by clicking on the edit tab on the upper right hand corner of the memorial and then clicking the suggest a correction link to ask for a transfer. Connecting families, both past and present, is what it is all about!!

For you: William Y Williams FAG #75957402
*I saw your flower msg on Find A Grave for Catherine (Williams) Port and thought you might like this

This Last Will and Testament in digitzed version is available online from, but I thought you might like to post this only because it tells a lot about the other members of the family and does include Catherine Ports name as his child. I am not related but know the names will help others-thanks

Last Will and Testament of William Y. Williams written Jan 14, 1889:
Be it remembered that on the 20th day of July 1900 the following Last Will and Testament of William Y. Williams was admitted to probate in the following words to wit:
I William Y Williams of Delaware County, Indiana, make and publish this my Last Will and Testament. I give bequeath and desire to my wife Esther Williams, for her maintenance for an during the remainder of her natural life, all of my real and personal estate whatever, wherever situated.

I give and bequeath to my grandson William Nathan Williams to be his from and after the decease of my wife Esther Williams, all of my household and kitchen goods and furniture implements and utensils; After the death of my said wife all the rest and residence of my estate of every kind and character not specially otherwise herein disposed of shall be equally divided between my children to wit: Zadok Williams, Isaac J. Williams, James Henry Williams, Catharine Port, Sarah Ann Keesling, Nathan Perry Williams; and the children of my deceased son John Williams, that is to say unto seven equal shares of which the children of my deceased son jointly and equally, shall take one share; and each of my said children herein named shall take one share. And this third clause shall be carried into complete effect entirely disregarding all advancements made by me heretofore to said children and each of them by distributions of portions of my property. I hereby constitute and appoint Albert L. Wright of Muncie, Indiana as Executor of this my Will. In testimony whereof I hereunto subscribe my name and affix my seal at Muncie Indiana this 14th day of January 1889.

Date edits
I think those dates where the day is 1 off and the year is 4 off was a spreadsheet that went haywire. I didn't realize there had been a problem until much later so there was no way to back them out. :( Thanks for finding some!
