Jay: A couple of things:

I think I forgot to say that one reason I figure the census taker showed confusion on William R.'s family is that he shows Winnifred as having been born in SC. That would have been true of the mother, but not of the daughter.

Second, I just talked with my cousin who grew up in the old Williams house (where her mother and my mother were born, built by my grandfather William H.) on the NE corner of #82 and Lodi/Alvastage, and she remembers the Johnson house, across the road from them, and north of #82 - in other words, opposite sides of Lodi, same side of #82. She says that the family who own the cemetery land (where my grandparents are buried), about half a mile or so up from the Johnson/Williams area, are Hensons. The father was a doctor, now retired.

Third, this cousin (half sister of Lois, Marion's widow) was looking at a picture of the Johnson house, and two different writeups about Johnsons and I think maybe Curtis, in a Montgomery County history. Have you seen that book? She says that Lois is not well, and is now in a nursing home in Winona.

By the way, was Holmes Curtis a relative of yours? He married one of my Williams people - is buried in Winona.

Did I tell you that I found my wife's relative in the company roster with the Hopkins and Williams, War of 1812?
I had been tracing him (Travis Nash) for her but did not know that he was there.
