Bible Records of Ebenezer Williams Family

Don Stinson  recently came into possession of a family Bible with family information of the Ebenezer Williams family. Settled in Canandaigua in 1793, buried in Remington Cem. His daughter Rhoda Clark is buried in Pioneer Cemetery.  It appears the Bible belonged to his son Orva.  His children are all listed there.  The Bible was published in 1811 by Mathew Carey, Philadelphia. In 1860 census may be Ezekiel in Ingham Co. Michigan and Arva in Penn. If you have a interest in this family, please contact Don Stinson by clicking on his name above.
