WILLIAMS

Bar

 

John H. Williams family with Aunt Belle

John Henry seated with wife Amanda Emmaline behind and

daughter Ethelena sitting in front.

(I estimate it was taken before Ethelena's marriage in 1899 in Hebron.)

Seated next to John is his half sister Belle Martin (a teacher in KS).

I am unsure who the other 3 are as son Elmer did not marry until after Ethel, in 1905;

it may be one of John's 3 half-brothers and family.

Four Generations

Catherine Martin, John Williams,

Ethelena Adams, Erma Adams

The Courthouse was repaired and the Church rebuilt..
