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 Record‘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 and Jane Williams.

Together, Susannah and Philip would have ten children, all born in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania: son Aaron W.

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.

Less than a year later, on 3 March 1851, Susannah’s father, 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 Aquilla. 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.
