Daniel and Bell or Belle (last name unknown) were my great-grandparents. Their daughter, Sara Eliza Reynolds Williamson, was my mother's mother. Sara married William Albert Williamson. Daniel is believed to have been born in Robison or died their. I found reference in family bible to Crown Point Cemetery, but do not know if that is in Robison. Bell is believed to have been born in KY. It is possible that William and Sara are buried in Long Point Cemetery. I believe that is near Wapella, IL. The Reynolds and Williamson's have ties to Effingham, Bloomington, Wapella, Robison, and Peoria. William and Sara's children were Ollie and Effie (Ollie died as an infant), George, Dewey, Roy, Helen, and Eunice. The Williamson family may have been influential at one time. They supposedly lived near the Adlai Stevenson family in bloomington. Or they may have been poor and worked in the Stevenson's business.
Effie married a man named Alfred. They lived in Effingham, IL. Some of us believe from a letter that the house they lived in once belonged to William and Sara, but after they died, Alfred wrote the surving girls to turn over the property for him to take care of. According to the letter, the girls did this due to the fact their husbands were overseas during wartime. Alfred may have been married before, but he and Effie had no children. They are buried in Effingham. William and Sara's son, Dewey, become quite wealty and lived and died in Bloomington. Would like any info on Daniel and Bell Reynolds and William and Sara Williamson. I can't find records on them anywhere. thanks for any help, and sorry this is so long.
