This photograph was taken in February 1968.

Jonathan Hayes Williams, the oldest son of John Francis Williams III and Phyllis Jean Schock, was born in Windsor, North Carolina on May 27, 1959. His birth is May 1959 was exactly 100 years following the birth of his direct forbear, John Francis Williams I in May 1859.

There is another rare coincidence. Jonathan's birth in 1959 was just 200 years after that of his direct ancestor, William (Joseph) Williams in 1759. This looks like it was planned that way.

Jonathan is one of 98 cousins all in his generation, and all descendants of Joseph Augustus Williams, 1819-1875.

This young man's life story is yet to be written, but already it looks promising.
