I am searcing for info on a Watkin W. Williams born 9 June, 1805. I cannot locate a town parish or county. His father was Humphrey Williams, born circa 1780. This is all the detail I have, unfortunately. Any help would be appreciated.

Ty,

I know this message was from nearly 15 years ago, but hopefully it somehow finds you. Watkin was born in New York, NY in 1805. He was my grandfather (I believe 5 generations ago) and he died in 1865. He is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in Columbus, OH; which lists Humphrey as his father. I am trying to trace Humphrey and the rest of my ancestry back to Wales, but have not had much luck. I have some more history on Watkin if you are interested.

Thanks,
Rob Williams
