Not my family line, just sharing.

"MILTON H. WILLIAMS is the youngest of the seven children born to JOSEPH and RACHEL (HANIMAN) WILLIAMS, and was born in Hamilton County, Indiana, June 7, 1832. Both his grandfathers were killed by the Indians near Chillicothe, Ohio, in the wars of the frontier, and his father, JOSEPH WILLIAMS, was a soldier in the war of 1812, and was with General Hull at the time of his surrender to the enemy. JOSEPH was married in Ohio, but a few years after the war moved to Hamilton County, Indiana, then an unbroken wilderness, developed a farm, and there died in 1837. His widow and three of the children died of cholera in 1850. MILTON H. WILLIAMS, after his father's death, lived with his brother-in-law until eighteen. He then worked three summers in the Tippecanoe Iron Forge in Fulton County, Indiana, and then, in 1853, came to this township, where he bought a partially improved farm of 100 acres, on which he still resides and which he has increased to 180 acres. He was married, October 25, 1860, to SOPHRONIA GOBLE, a native of Henry County, Indiana, and to this union have been born seven children, of whom but three are still living. In politics, MR. WILLIAMS is a Republican, and has never missed a vote since he became of age."
