Cj King My name was Connie Jo williams - (now King). Harry E Williams and Edith Rose Williams were my grandparents. They were born in the South Dakota area. I am looking for information on his parents and sister and brother. I know he had a brother named Ray and a sister named Edna. They called his mom "mommy". I never knew her by any other name.
I remember names such as Minnie and Olie and Delores and Andy. Thank you for any information.
