    1. [WILLIAMS-UK] WILLIAMS Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ruth WILLIAMS of Ironwood, MI. The photograph was taken in the early 1900's with Ruth appearing to be in her teens or 20's. She is pictured with a friend and both are holding violins. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Ruth and her family: Ruth WILLIAMS was b. 1901-1903 in Wisconsin to parents William Pascoe WILLIAMS (1864-1948) and Emma Johanna POAD (1866-1938). Ruth had a brother Chester Henry WILLIAMS (1895-1982). Ruth married Harry BOND Jr. (1904-1970) and together they had two children, David Lee (1938-1975) and Emmajean (1939-1998). Ruth died in 1970. Census records provide the following details: 1910 census of Knight, WI: William P. WILLIAMS, age 48, married 16 years, born England, parents born England, to USA 1890, a Blacksmith in Iron Mines Emma WILLIAMS, wife, age 43, married 16 years, 5 children/2 living, born WI, parents born England/IL Chester WILLIAMS, son, age 15, born MI Ruth WILLIAMS, dau, age 8, born WI 1920 census of Ironwood, MI: William WILLIAMS, age 57, to USA 1872, born England, parents born England Emma WILLIAMS, wife, age 53, born WI, parents born England/IL Chester H. WILLIAMS, son, age 24, born MI, a Hospital Intern Ruth E. WILLIAMS, dau, age 18, born WI + 3 Lodgers I'm hoping to locate someone from this WILLIAMS Family so that the photograph can be returned to its rightful place, with family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    3. Hello listers! I am researching the family of Henry Williams of St. Ewe parish, Cornwall, UK. Henry's daughter Rebecca( b. 1847) was my great grandmother. Henry was a butcher in the small village of Polmassick, as were his father and grandfather. I've been to Polmassick and I took a picture of the house where they lived, generation after generation. Anyone out there descended from this family? Sher, Ontario, Canada
