The Williams siblings

The Children of W.E. Williams Forrest City, Arkansas

The other day I was playing on the internet and I did a search for Forrest City Images and up popped a picture of my great grandfather, W.E. Williams. He was Daddy’s grandfather. His mother was Bessie Mae Williams Gatling.  They lived in a two-story house across the street from the Methodist church. It was where the post office is now. They had 15 children. The first 3 died of childhood diseases.Williams[1]
