Amy Johnson Crow, on her blog No Story Too Small, has challenged her fellow bloggers to post 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. This is week forty-nine, in my attempt to catch up before the end of the year!
My great-great-great-great grandfather was Robert Williams. He was born in Ireland, likely in the late 1780s. He married Elizabeth Hamilton around 1808.
They emigrated to Canada in the early 1820s and settled in the Ormstown, Quebec area.
According to a Deed of Donation, as indexed, from April 18, 1831, the family had several children:
Robert Williams & his wife Elizabeth Hamilton; their minor children Isabella, Sarah, James, William, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Mary , Hamilton, Robert Alexander & Andrew; their son Thomas of age of majority.
I don’t have a great deal more solid information on the family at this point – I’m not even entirely positive when Robert and Elizabeth died.
