Re: WILLIAMS, John W. and Lucy Ellen (Simpkins)

I will assume this is the family you are referring to, since the wife is named Lucy.

WILLIAMS, JOHN W (1920 U.S. Census)
New York , NEW YORK, MANHATTAN, Age 67, Male, Race: Black, Born: VA
Series: T625 Roll: 1221 Page: 286

He is listed as a porter in a candy store. A son is listed as porter in Grand Central Station, and another as a fireman.

Incorrectly indexed in 1900:
