In 1978, my father, John F. Williams II, put together a family "photo" album. His intent was to produce for the family a pictorial record of the descendants of William Williams (1727-1791). His book, THE ANCESTOR, then forthcoming, is about the life of William Williams, the author and painter. The album starts with the self portrait of William Williams (1727-1791) and continues through male descendants up to the present. This is reproduced as is, with the exception of the additional new data that Barbara and I uncovered in 2005 and 2007 in Bristol, referred to earlier.
The pictures in this album, as may be seen, start as seems proper with the oldest generation and proceeds to the newest. By reversing this order, in other words, by starting with the youngest generation, we have in the case of the JFW line the following:
1. Jonathan Hayes Williams eldest son of 2. John Francis Williams III eldest son of 3. John Francis Williams II eldest surviving son of 4. John Francis Williams I son of 5. Joseph Augustus Williams youngest son of 6. William Joseph Williams eldest son of 7. William Williams youngest son of 8. William Williams son of 9.
