Hello again,

On going through the responses, I note in Reply #5 that the head of the house (husband) 1900 census, was one Edward C. Williams.

In the 1905 census the head of the house (husband) was Richard C. Williams. This presumably was the Richard Cadwallader Williams mentioned in my first post. Should Edward have been Richard; a transcription error?

Hi,

You're very welcome, pleased the info helped fill some gaps.

You mention the 1900 census saying Edward C Willliams. If you look at the 1900 Census image the name of Mr Williams is over-written but if I were transcribing I would say it said Richard. The record on ancestry has been altered to read Richard, the family search one obviously hasn't.

The Obituary for Kepler Vanfleet Hammond names the children.  Using the names and locations given in conjunction with http://www.whitepages.com/ - spokeo - people finder and sites like those, you should be able to locate all who are listed.

I can confirm that in reply 16 - I referred to the death notice for Miriam Jane Amish in 1957 being on the http://www.fultonhistory.com/fulton.html - the marriage you have found is another bonus. The site is very good and you may find lots of info related to your families.

Thank you for your response Sandra.

You have probably guessed by now that I am not all that au fait with things related to computers ::)..........

Using the website as shown, I have tried without success to find the death in 1957 of Miriam Jane Amish. Not sure where I am going wrong. (I did however find the death of Thomas Edwin Hammond during my search, so that was a bonus.)

Progress.......

I have located the death for Miriam! A case of "less is more". I finally went for just 'Miriam Amish' (took out Jane) and found the date of her death, not an actual obituary.

Still going through all the wonderful information.

A question for Sandra please:

Reply #15 re the 1930 census concerning Minnie HAMMOND-

I am puzzled as to why Barbara Amish & Lois Amish; both grand-daughters, are shown as deceased.

Hello,

I know this is an old thread, but I came across it when I was searching for information about my grandfather's military service record. My grandmother is Miriam Elizabeth Williams Small, and her father is Richard Cadwallader Williams.

My middle name is Cadwalader, which I understood to be a family name. I believe the extra "l" was dropped by accident.

Enjoyed the thread!

Hello JCS and welcome to Rootschat!  :)

As you say, this is an old thread and I will need to refresh my memory but the names you mention are certainly familiar.

If you post two more replies, even just using a smiley  :), we will be able to correspond by the personal message system.

I hope we can swap information. I live in New Zealand and am the great-great-grand-daughter of Charles Hammond, born 1818, a brother of Thomas Hammond. Both born Bewdley, Worcestershire.

Looking forward to hearing from you.....
