I am looking for information re: William Crenshaw Williams b. 4/14/1866 in Grayson Co. TX & died in Vernon on July 28, 1931 or 1932. I have an original newspaper clipping of his obituary which has his picture but the BVS has no record of him. He married Maude Hester on 10/10/1897 & they had 8 children;Frank, Georgia Robinson McLarty, Viola Sweet, Goldie Whitehead, Freda Speights, Wilbur, Robert & Jeff. The last three boys were young when he died. Robert was my father & he was 11 or 12 when his dad died. All of the children are deceased. I was told that my grandfather was a Singer sewing machine salesman & was supposedly running for public office at the time of his death. Family legend has it that he was also a member of the KKK. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
