Williams family gathers for reunion at lake
Forty-two descendants of Christopher C. Williams, Lucy E. Williams Crawford, and the J.K. Williams family from six states met at the Marion County Lake hall June 9 for their annual reunion.
A potluck meal and a short business meeting were followed by Fred Williams of San Antonio, Texas, telling of his missionary work in Thailand. His wife, Oht, assisted him in his work there.
Family pictures, stories, and documents were shared. A wooden 2013 Williams reunion commemorative piece, handcrafted by Bob Everett of Fort Morgan, Colo., was awarded to Melinda Roach as a door prize. Officers elected for 2014 were Ruth Williams Lott, president; Mindy Williams Legg, secretary-treasurer; and Susan Sloan Williams, hostess. The next reunion will be June 8 at Marion County Lake hall.
