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 Updated Williamson Family Tree

Finding our Ancestors
They're there, Waiting to be Remembered.

From the Fortress of Solitude

Hello All,

Snow, Snow and more snow here at the Fortress. The walks have been shoveled and the snow plows have blown through so I have a few minutes today to post my latest research on the Williamson Family Tree.

Let me begin by saying that researching, correlating and consolidating all the information on this Williamson line has given me a headache. There were disagreements that had to be resolved and dates that didn't correlate. Now, four hours later, I'm ready to post the results.

So, without further delay, I unveil the newest Williamson Family Relationship Chart based on my latest research. (Click to Enlarge)

The information above is based on my research of census documents and family history (refer to the following post in the history blog: http://atropesend.blogspot.com/2010/10/new-theory-on-origin-of-our-williamson.html). While it may not be 100% provable, it is my belief that this is our Williamson line based on the evidence at hand. So, until I, or someone else, can produce evidence to the contrary, this will stand as our official Williamson genealogy (our line only through George Matthew Williamson).

Below is what we know to be 100% accurate based on our own family history. The connecting name is Matthew Williamson, who I claim is the son of Cuthbert Williamson and Suzanna White.

If you read the top Relationship Chart you'll see I also claim the earliest traceable Williamson in our line is an Anglican Vicar named Joseph Williamson. If this theory is correct, then we are related to Sir Joseph Williamson. I'll explain further in another post later this week.

Thank you for reading.
