The Williams and Tyler Families

The The Williams and Tyler Families was written by my grandfather, Wyman L. Williams, in 1949 and updated by him in 1980.

Leland scanned the first set of pages and gave me the idea to scan the rest; there were many scanning/OCR errors and I've tried to correct those I've found. Please let me know if you find others. At the moment, I have a close facsimile of the book. There are some pages in the RTF version which run a bit long and may require some margin changes to fit properly.

See the HTML version for online use; it incorporates corrections and additions to the original. Also available below: I have it in my native format (Open Office), a somewhat formatted RTF file and plain text as a txt file. Save your choice locally (right click and select save link as...) and open it in your favorite text editor.

Click on either photo for a larger verison. If anyone has a better copy of the 1900s photo, I would be happy to include it here. Please contact me by email:
Leland sent along this color photo and a copy of the 200th Anniversary celebration program from Willow Swamp Baptist Church, which had better photos of the church than those I scaned from my Grandfather's book. Those scans are in the Willow Swamp section of the book.

As of February, 2008, I've added a photo gallery of images which relate to the Williams and Tyler families. The gallery includes the photos presented on this page, in the HTML version of the book, and some I've only posted in the gallery.
