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 Williamsons as They Appeared in the Sundance Times, Sundance Wyoming

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

Hello All,
     I've spent the better part of two days searching through the online archives of the Sundance Times, the local newspaper of Sundance, Wyoming for any and all mentions of our Williamson family. 
I'm surprised by the actual total, much of which I didn't bother to clip to this post because the information was simple in nature. For example, who visited whom for lunch - very common in local, rural papers of the day. 
     Let's remember that our Great Great Grandparents George Mathew and Margaret Ann  Williamson arrived in Sundance, Wyoming sometime between 1885 and 1910ish.  With them went a few of their children from whence most of the Williamsons who live in the Black Hills area originate.
     You many not know everyone mentioned in the clippings below, but you can easily find them by browsing my family tree on ancestry.com.  Contact me if you have troubles. I marked the family tree as public.  I'm hoping ancestry.com allowed you click on certain people to read more about them, as I've placed a great deal of information on their individual pages.  My email address is 
spacecamputah@gmail.com.  I also want to point out the fact that many of the female Williamsons will have different married names. Again, do a quick search to see how we are interrelated.
