First I wanted to compliment you on your work on the Tri-Counties website.
You have done a marvelous job putting everything together. It has
been particularly useful to me since so many of my ancestors on the Williams
side lived in Elmira, NY, Troy, PA, and Bloss, Tioga Co., Pa beginning
before 1850 and continuing until today, with my aunt by marriage, who currently
lives in Gillett, PA.
My 2nd great grand uncle, Benjamin Williams operated the Williams House
in Troy for several years. I am not sure of the exact years that
he owned and operated it. However, I do know that he was evidently
a resident of Troy at least between 1899, and 1906, as his daughter Katherine
graduated from Troy High School in 1899 and his other daughter Louise graduated
from the same school in 1906. I found a record from the 1904 Troy
Register that his brother, and my 2nd great grandfather, Llewellyn Williams
visited him and his family and stayed at the Williams House in January
and February of that year.
I saw Benjamin's name one of your web pages (I believe it was the 1907
list of businesses which had hotels listed). However, I noticed that
there was no picture of the hotel. Some months ago, I happened to
find a couple of post cards on eBay that showed the Williams House.
I thought you might be interested in scans of these in the hopes that they
could get posted on the web site at some point in the near future.
I am attaching the two scans to this email. Hopefully, they will
be of sufficient quality for your use.
Thank you for your time and again for your diligence on the Tri-County
