Williams-Stott Immigrant Ancestors


We are a nation of immigrants. Most of us descend from others who came to this land whether by their own volition or against their will. With this in mind, I will be documenting all the known immigrant ancestors for both my family and my spouse’s family. This is tenth installment of this series.


The final installment in the Immigrant Ancestors series chronicles the known immigrants in the Williams-Stott line, my spouse’s maternal mother’s family.

The most recent know immigrant is Robert Stott, 3rd great-grandfather, born 14 Mar 1833 in Dunkirk, Yorkshire, England.  Next is Joseph Williams, 4th great-grandfather, born 17 Sep 1767 in Wales.

Skipping a couple of generations, the next know immigrant ancestors are William Williams, 6th great-grandfather, born in Wales; James Kelly, 6th great-grandfather, born in Londonderry, Ulster, Ireland; and Johan Georg Goss, 6th great-grandfather, born 6 Mar 1730 in Hanover, Niedersachsen, Germany and his wife Elizabeth, 6th great-grandmother, born 5 Dec 1735 in Germany.
