    • BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION:

      According to his son Harry, Jr., written in a letter to Clela, Harry Sr. was born on Sumpter's Island which is in one of the lakes near Milford, IN in Kosciusko County. Its county seat is at Warsaw. He did live in or near Angola, Steuben Co , IN as a small boy. According to a letter written by his mother, Samantha Harriet (Mattie) Lammond Williams, post marked in Lawton, MI Aug 11, 1886 he had accompanied her there. The letter was addressed to her husband, John Henry Williams, i n Leslie, MI where he may have been working. Mattie and the three children, Addie, Guy and Harry Sr., were visiting her parents, Cortland and Nancy Jane Lammond, in Lawton, Michigan. She probably traveled by train, possibly from Hillsdale wher e they might have been living at the time. It appears that his parents moved around a lot in those early years. In her letter she mentions renting a "hack" to go to see an Ivine Coy, and that Guy and Harry hadfun driving the horses.

      Harry Williams, Sr. worked as a Machinist and Foreman and owned his own machine shop.
