Funeral Card Friday: David Williams, Warwick, Ontario, 1901



Blessed are they that do His commandments for they may have right to the tree of life and may enter in through the gate into the city. ---Rev. 22:14.


In Loving Remembrance of 
David Williams,
who died at Warwick, Ont., on Monday
June 3rd, 1901,
Aged 92 years, 10 months, 16 days.
Interred in Arkona Cemetery,
Thursday, June 6th, 1901

David Williams (born July 18, 1809, Ontario) left behind a wife, Nancy A. (Rogers) Williams (born 1838, Ameliasburg, Ontario) and a daughter, Phoebe S. Williams, when he died in 19011.  He and Nancy were married on the 1st of January 1871 in Warwick, Lambton County, Ontario.  Both had been married previously and were widowed.  The brides' parents were John Rogers and Sarah Benson Rogers.  David was the son of Welshman, John Williams, Nancy McCorigan Williams2.  I've been unable to locate David's prior marriage in the records or learn if he had other children. 

Nancy Rogers Williams passed away 4 1/2 years after the death of her husband on the 13th of December, 1905 at age 673
