William C Williams
(Nov 1846 - 28 Apr 1930)
There are no city directories or newspaper files available for Clayton, IL, at this time. The only records available for W C Williams were the US census for 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. The 1870 US census shows a W Williams as farm laborer but it is not certain this is the same Williams.
W C Williams is shown as photographer in 1880 and 1900. By 1910 he is shown as a merchant of dry goods.
The 1920 and the 1930 show him as no occupation. He dies at age 83, seven days after being enumerated in the 1930 US census.
