Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

Did you know you were related to Gerald R. Ford? Yes the former President of the United States.
He is our 8th Cousin twice removed (my generation of Williamsons). The relationship line is as follows:
There, now I'm off to a family Labor Day picnic. We'll eat and talk and then eat some more and talk more then eat once again and, to top off the night, eat once more.
