Wordless Wednesday: Williams Family c.1898


My great-grandparents Reese Jackson Williams and Flora McAdams Williams with their three sons Earl (b. 1892), Argil (b. 1890) and baby Guy (b. 1897) in Johnson City, Tennesee about 1898.  I have always considered their names wildly romantic, though they were the most conventional of people.  R.J. grew up in the mountains of southwest Virginia, moving to Johnson City as a young man.  He was a woodworker and cabinet maker.  Flora was raised nearby in Locust Mount.  She was a fervent Baptist and family historian.
