Philip Williams

On this day, 14 July 1882, Philip Williams, my spouse’s 3rd great-grandfather, passed away in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

Phillip Williams was born on 12 February 1812, in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. He was the son of Joseph Williams and Jane Williams, who were married on 3 February 1796, in Centre County, Pennsylvania. He joined elder sister Maria Williams, who was born in 1796.

Even though other children were born to Joseph and Jane Williams in the 18 years between Maria and Philip’s births, the names of these siblings are unknown.

In 1820, Joseph Williams and his wife Jane lived in Patton Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania, along with one son under the age of 10 (Philip), one son between the ages of 10-15, one son between the ages of 16-18, four daughters under the age of 10, and one daughter between the ages of 10-15.

Younger sister, Eliza Williams, was born circa 1826, in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

In 1830, Joseph and Jane Williams had moved to in Halfmoon Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. They lived with one son between the ages of 10-15, one son between the ages of 15-20 (Philip), one daughter between the ages of 15-20, and two daughters between the ages of 20-30.

Sometime between 1830 and 1838, Philip Williams married Susannah Jane Record, daughter of George Record and Catherine Kelly.

Together, Philip and Susannah would have ten children, all born in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. These children were son 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 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 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, Philip’s mother, Jane Williams, died in Worth Township, Centre, Pennsylvania. She was buried in Williams Cemetery, Julian, Centre County, Pennsylvania.

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

On 11 October 1850, Philip Williams and his wife Susannah lived in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. Philip was a farmer. Residing with them were their children Aaron, Emily, James, Nancy, George, and John. Philip’s father, Joseph Williams, a widower, resided with them.

Less than a year later, on 3 March 1851, Philip’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, Philip and Susannah Williams 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, Philip and his wife 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.

Sadly, on June 1877, Susannah Jane (Record) Williams died Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. She was 64 years old. Susannah was buried in Williams Cemetery, Julian, Centre, Pennsylvania.

A few months later, on 2 October 1877, daughter Emily Williams died in Centre County, Pennsylvania.

On 3 June 1880, Philip Williams was still farming in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. Living with him were his 26-year old daughter Margaret “Maggie” and two-year old granddaughter Edith. Sons Aquila, George, and James, and their families lived on adjacent farms.

Then, on 14 July 1882, Philip Williams died in Worth Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. He was 70 years old. He was buried beside his wife, Susannah, in Williams Cemetery, Julian, Centre County, Pennsylvania.
