Clarification of Persons and Names:
|Head of household: Charles Sidney Williams,
Sr. Born 1874 in Kentucky. Died 1913 in Roswell, Chaves Co. NM. According to this
census, he was 1/8 Caddo Indian.
His father was William Gerard Williams and his mother was known as "Grandma Sue" in the family.
According to this census, Sue would be 1/4 Caddo Indian. (I don't think the census notation of this being Charles' second marriage is correct...but have no proof otherwise-aw.)
Wife: Lillian. Lillian Lee Masters, born 1877, Amarillo, Randall/Potter, Texas. Died at about age 90 in Pheonix AZ
|Children of Charles Sidney Williams and Lillian Lee (Masters) Williams|
Mother-in-law: Ella Hawkins was Lee Ella and married (1) William Masters (2) James Lindsey.
According to son, Glenn [William Glenn Williams, Sr.] ...doc. dated 1964.
Lillian graduated Texas University, went to and graduated from Boston Conservatory of Music 1900. Returned to Texas, to become first woman band leader and director in United States. As of 1964, she was still active in music in Pheonix AZ...playing in Arizona State Fair 1964 with Grandmother's Band (all over age 60).
In 1900 Lillian married Charles Sidney Williams who also was a graduate of Texas University. Coming from wealthy family, he was given large cattle ranch in El Reno, OK. This is where Lillian started as director of college bands...El Reno College.
They had seven children. First two born in El Reno. They moved to Pilot Point TX 1904, before third and fourth born. Moved back to Charles Ranch in OK before second son born...William Glenn Williams, Sr. [aka Glenn] in 1908. Moved to Roswell NM before their last child was born in 1913.
After husband, Charles' death in 1913, Lillian moved to Phoenix AZ where she was employed as Director of Music, Phoenix Union High School in 1913. Her mother, Lila Lee [aka Ella Hawkins] came with her, took care of the seven children and became mother and father to them as Lillian had to be the bread winner.
