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.

The Marriage Certificate of our Great Great Grandparents.

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

Hello Williamsons,
Something for the Williamson side of our family tonight. Let us begin with a Relationship Chart.

Tonight I'd like to share the document that contributed to the creation of this family we call Williamson. I'd like to show you the Marriage Certificate of our Great Great Grandparents Whitley and Nancy Morris. They were the parents of our Great Grandmother Effie Helen Victor. Effie married William Jonathan Williamson and of course - here we all are.

Please click on the image to enlarge.

You've noticed the posts to this family blog are not as frequent as they once were. The cause is understandable. Up until recently I've been posting the 'easy' family history. Think of it as the low hanging fruit on the family tree. It is becoming more difficult to find information the higher (or further back) we go. This means that instead of spending 30 minutes to one hour gathering information for a post, I'm now spending hours and hours - resulting in a few posts per week instead of one per day as I was doing.

Regardless, please rest assured that although the frequency of my posting has diminished, the enthusiasm is still there. I'm researching and searching every possible lead and will continue to do so until this American story is told.

Perhaps a goal that will never be reached but well worth the effort.

  1. We all LOVE and APPRECIATE all of the endless hours of hard work you've put into this Victor! This is such a priceless gift! Without the work you've done, and hopefully continue to do :), this history would be lost to the ages. Your leaving an amazing legacy and wealth of knowledge for endless generations to come!! Someday Future Williamsons and Mattsons will tell your story too!
    Love you,
    The Most Amazing of the Williamsons......
