My name is Larry Williams. I have a book by Isaac J. Williams which traces the Williams family back to John Williams, who live at Ft Pitt, PA. in 1760. My grandfather Glen L Williams updated it in 1977. I would be very interested to know if anyone has gone back farther than 1760. Also I would like to know my Great Great Grandfather Robert Williams' wife’s maiden name (he was born in Eaton, Ohio in 1814).

I currently live in Frankfort Indiana, but grew up in Warren (Huntington County).

My e-mail is lwmcaf@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you.

Larry, I believe we have been in touch before! Didn't you send me the Williams book?

We have a new breakthrough in my Dad's Y DNA match - it was an exact match! Still trying to sort out who is the connecting ancestor.

Most of our DNA group goes back to Wales. If you'd like more info, please email me.
