Henry Lyman Williams, father to 8 children, died on June 17, 1981 in Fowler, Colorado at 88 years old. Henry was born on November 22, 1892 in Des Moines, Iowa. He was born to William Henry Williams and Belinda Vernon (Close) Williams, with siblings Bert, Howard, Albert, Grace, and Agnes. He married Virgie Ollie Cupp on July 22, 1918 in Pueblo, Colorado. They gave birth to Olive Mae Williams, Katherine Eileen Williams, Henry Lyman Williams Jr, Luther Allen Williams, Velda Ruth Williams, Velma Jean Williams, Van Albert Williams, and Lois Elvera Williams.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Henry's lifetime.

In 1892, in the year that Henry Lyman Williams was born, on January 1st, Ellis Island opened to process immigrants. 700 passed through on the first day - in the first year, 450,000 were processed. The processing center was originally a 3 story wooden building - with outbuildings - that burned down a few years later.

In 1915, at the age of 23 years old, Henry was alive when in May, the RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German torpedo. The Lusitania was a British passenger ship that was sailing from New York to Liverpool England. She sank in 18 minutes - 1,198 died and 761 survived. While travelers were the main casualty - and commodity - the Lusitania did carry wartime weapons. "Remember the Lusitania" became the rallying cry of World War 1.

In 1930, when he was 38 years old, on August 6th, N.Y. Supreme Court Judge Joseph Crater went through papers in his office, destroyed some of them, withdrew all his money from the bank - $5,150, sold his stock, met friends at a restaurant for dinner and disappeared after getting into a taxi (or walking down the street - his friends' testimony later changed). His disappearance was reported to the police on September 3rd - almost a month later. His wife didn't know what happened, his fellow Justices had no idea, and his mistresses (he had several) said that they didn't know. While his disappearance was front page news, his fate was never discovered and after 40 years the case was closed, still without knowing if Crater was dead or alive.

In 1979, by the time he was 87 years old, on March 28th, a partial nuclear meltdown occurred at the power plant at Three Mile Island Pennsylvania. Radiation leaked into the environment, resulting in a rating of 5 on a scale of 7 ("Accident With Wider Consequences") . It ended up costing $1 billion to clean up the site.

In 1981, in the year of Henry Lyman Williams's passing, on August 1st, MTV debuted. It was the first music video TV channel. The first music video played was the Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star" - the second was Pat Benatar's "You Better Run".
