    Williams. Nicholas Columbus & Catherine Belinda Martin Family 1898
    This picture appears to have been taken at the time of the 50th wedding anniversary of NC and Catherine Williams. Not all the folks were labeled on this picture but based on the label of the anniversary party and the styles of dresses. Hopefully the identification is correct.

    Back row, left to right: John Moffit and wife Ellenor Gertrude Dixon Williams (has been verified), Williams Joseph Wills (husband of Nancy Permelia (Williams) "Millie" Wiils died 1886-note-this may be James A McCanse; Margaret Catherine Williams McCanse-note identified from the picture of the full group; Sarah Ann Williams Thornton Jones;

    Middle Row, left to right: Mary Delancy; Nicholas Columbus Williams (father) Catherine Belinda Martin Williams (mother)Ruthie Jane Williams Carlyle Reece;
    Front Row: Left to right James Otto Long and Mettie Rhodena Williams Long; Martha Elizabeth Dixon William and Luther Nicholas Williams; Lillie Etta Dixon Williams and Daniel Bucannon Williams.

    Note: in Eleanor's information she had Wm Joseph Wills and Ethel Wills, age 16, however it is unlikely this is Ethel as no other Grandchildren are present, this picture appears to be just the children NC Williams and their spouses. In the picture with the younger generation, Ethel is labeled and does not look like the woman in this picture.
