Ruth Williams

Updated Aug 15, 2017

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ruth WILLIAMS of Ironwood, MI. The photograph was taken in the early 1900's with Ruth appearing to be in her teens or 20's. She is pictured with a friend and both are holding violins. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Ruth and her family:

Ruth WILLIAMS was b. 1901-1903 in Wisconsin to parents William Pascoe WILLIAMS (1864-1948) and Emma Johanna POAD (1866-1938). Ruth had a brother Chester Henry WILLIAMS (1895-1982). Ruth married Harry BOND Jr. (1904-1970) and together they had two children, David Lee (1938-1975) and Emmajean (1939-1998). Ruth died in 1970.

Census records provide the following details:

Emma WILLIAMS, wife, age 43, married 16 years, 5 children/2 living, born WI, parents born England/IL

I’m hoping to locate someone from this WILLIAMS Family so that the photograph can be returned to its rightful place, with family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
