Susannah Jane (Record) Williams

On this day, 16 June 1877, Susannah Jane (Record) Williams passed away. She was my spouse’s 3rd great-grandmother.

Born on 4 April 1813, in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania, Susannah Jane Record was the daughter of George Record and Catherine Kelly, who were married on 3 September 1812.

Susannah Jane Record was born during the War of 1812. During her infancy, from 5 May 1813 through November 8, 1813, her father George Record served as a captain of a Pennsylvania militia company that was part of Col. Rees Hill’s regiment. On 10 September 1813, Capt. George Record, along with his company, fought at the Battle of Lake Erie, a decisive American victory.

On 25 September 1815, Susannah’s brother Ebenezer Record was born in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

In 1820, the George Record family resided in Patton Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

Ten years later, in 1830, Susannah’s father George Record died in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. George Record was only 45 years old at the time of his death. He was buried in Brown Cemetery, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

At some point between 1830 and 1838, Susannah Jane Record married Philip Williams, son of Joseph Williams and Jane Williams.

Together, Susannah and Philip would have ten children, all born in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania: Aaron W. Williams, born 21 December 1838; daughter Emily Williams, born 12 August 1839; son James Bernard Williams (my spouse’s 2nd great-grandfather), born 20 May 1841; daughter Nancy Susannah Williams, born 26 January 1844; son George Record Williams, born in 1845; son Meshech Edwin Williams, born 6 February 1847; son John Philip Williams, born 16 January 1848; son William H. Williams, born late 1850; daughter Margaret “Maggie” Ellen Williams, born 1853; and son Aquila Samuel Williams, born in 1856.

In 1840, the Philip Williams family lived in Halfmoon Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. In the household was one male age 20-30 (Philip), one female age 20-30 (Susannah), one male under age 5 (Aaron), and one female under age 5 (Emily).

Sadly, on 19 November 1841, Susannah’s mother-in-law, Jane Williams, died in Worth Township, Centre, Pennsylvania. She was buried in Williams Cemetery, Julian, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

Then, in 1846, Susannah’s mother Catherine (Kelly) Record died in Centre County, Pennsylvania. She was buried in Brown Cemetery, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

On 11 October 1850, Susannah (Record) Williams and her husband lived in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. Philip was a farmer. Residing with them were their children Aaron, Emily, James, Nancy, George, and John. Susannah’s widowed father-in-law, Joseph Williams, lived with them.

Less than a year later, on 3 March 1851, Susannah’s father-in-law, Joseph Williams, died in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. He was buried in Williams Cemetery, Julian, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

On 15 August 1860, Susannah (Record) Williams and her husband lived in Houston Township, Centre Country, Pennsylvania. Residing with them were their children Aaron, Emily, James, Nancy, George, John, William, Margaret, and Aquila. Philip’s farm was valued at $2,000, and their personal property was estimated at $350.

On 28 June 1870, Susannah (Record) Williams and her husband still resided in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. Philip continued to farm. Residing with them were their children John, William, Margaret, and Aquilla. The farm was valued at $4,900, and their personal property was estimated at $1,300.

Then, on June 1877, at the age of 64, Susannah Jane (Record) Williams died in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. Susannah was buried in Williams Cemetery, Julian, Centre, Pennsylvania.
