Williams Family Notes and Information.
The following are separate families of Williams that came to Belleville/Ellisburg and are all inter-related. Having said this there are a few odd Williams that are not related to this old new england line. A few are more recent imigrants..
1850 census. Ellisburg NY, Williams family #1
William Williams SR. 74 born Vermont.
next door is:
William Williams JR 44 Born Vermont
[i'm not certain who William Williams Sr's parents are]
Roger Williams born Wales and Founded the city of Providence RI.
He fathered three sons. Providence, Daniel and Joseph. The following is Joseph's line.
Joseph Born Dec 16, 1645 was the father of Joseph Jr. born Novemer 10, 1673 and a Son named Thomas.
Joseph had a son Jeremiah who died in 1789. Jeremiah Jr. was born July 6, 1736 married his cousin Bethiah Williams daughter of Thomas above.
Jerimiah Jr. and Bethiah had a son named Othniel Sr., born 1761 married to Dorcas Field from Providence RI. They were early pioneer settlers to Chester, Windham count, Vermont. Dorcas Field was a decendant of Roger Wiliams' most trusted friend William Field.
Orthniel and Dorcas Williams had son Alexander Williams born Chester Vermont 1794. He moved to Ellisburg in 1818. In 1819 he went back to Vermont and married Rhoda Reed from Rockingham, Vermont.
This brings us down to Fredrick Williams of Ellisburg New York...a student of Union Academy Belleville and eventually a prime benefactor of the Academy.
(if you have any idea of who Joshua William's father is send me an email!)
The Williams line that has me stuck:
Joshua Loomis Williams [assuming the spelling is loomis as on his daughter's death certificate it spells it Lumas and Loomis is a Belleville family that married into the Williams' clan]
I have no idea who Joshua's parents are:

Elnora S Williams
Elenora's parents were:
Wallace's parents were:
Phoebe Ann Wood
Nelson's parents were:
John's parents were:
Zebedee Williams parents were:

From here the records are fairly easy to find. What one should know is that...this line goes right back to the family of Roger Williams's son Joseph. That was in Family Two mentioned above.
