Re: For Art Thomas' family tree?


Thanks for this and the other article in the email.

Yep, these are my people. And I didn't have a death date/location for Charles Joshua "Bud" Williams, (1864-1902) a 1C x 4R, the son of Joshua T. & Mary (Allen) Williams, grandson of Charles & Martha (Robinson) Allen.

I think I kept overlooking him in the Ohio death records because as you can see from this record he is listed as "white".

name: Charles J. Williams
gender: Male
burial date: 12 Aug 1902
death date: 10 Aug 1902
death place: Columbus, Franklin, Ohio
age: 38
birth date: 1864
birthplace: Columbus, Ohio
occupation: Barber
race: White
marital status: Single
father's name: J. T. Williams
father's birthplace: Am.
mother's name: Mary E. Williams
mother's birthplace: Am.
indexing project (batch) number: B01777-4
system origin: Ohio-EASy
source film number: 2026910

This little 'snippet' is a great testament to the value of AA newspapers in our research. A simple death notice of a person in Columbus, OH, reported in 1902, found in an AA newspaper in Cleveland, OH, which ties together three (3) families in my research ..... Williams, Allen & Clifford.

Again, Thanks
