Abstract:

The Williams Family Papers includes materials from five families: Pearce, Wilson, Harrison, Williams, and Winslow. The papers comprise approximately six cubic feet, with five oversized boxes housing documents and artifacts. Inclusive dates are 1819-1993, with the bulk of the material dating from 1850 to 1945. The collection is arranged in series by family name, with the papers of individual family members as subseries. While in most cases the papers are in very good condition, for preservation purposes photocopying is not permitted.

Persons represented in the Pearce family papers (Series I) include George Pearce (1792-1822) and his wife, Eliza Lacey Stephens Pearce (ca. 1798-1860). There is very little information on the Wilson family members in Series II. Persons represented in the Harrison family papers (Series III) include Betsey Cooke Harrison (1795-1872), her son, James Cooke Harrison (1819-1882), and his wife, Mary Wilson Pearce Harrison (1820-1891). Persons represented in the William family papers (Series IV) include William Williams (1815-1876), Lovisa Kirkland Stedman Williams (1815-1895), Griffin Stedman Williams (1841-1911), Mary Pearce Harrison Williams (1849- 1909), Gordon Williams (1876-1925), Harrison Williams, Sr. (1873-1946), Jane Kirby Abbott Williams (1875-1909), Pauline Marechal Winslow WIlliams (1872-1933), Joan Stafford-Allen Williams (1907-2003), Harrison Williams, Jr. (1904-1928), Winslow Williams (1913-1993), and Helen Constance Moore Williams (1918-1991). Persons represented in the Winslow family papers (Series V) include Richard Winslow (1769-1857), Nathan Crane Winslow (1812-1880), Mary Anne Clarke Winslow (1815-1885), William G. Winslow (1845-1910), William Gaston Winslow (b. 1882), and Annie Clark Winslow Chadwick (d. 1926).

While the collection relates chiefly to family matters, other topics include New York City during the Civil War, U.S. Army service during World War I, and research for the writing projects of Harrison Williams, Sr. Places represented include Buffalo, N.Y., Cleveland, Ohio, and Leesburg, Va. Non-family correspondents include Benjamin Watkins Leigh and sculptor Hiram Powers who is represented by two ALS to Griffin Stedman Williams regarding Williams's purchase of a bust of "Proserpine."
