Grave of Mr. & Mrs. Williams


Circa 1912 photo from our collection showing members of the Williams family visiting the grave of Joseph Williams (1850-1911). The older woman was possibly (probably) Joseph’s wife, Henrietta (born 1853), whose name is also on the grave, with the date of death waiting to be added. It turns out Henrietta lived until 1934, and she was buried with her husband.. interestingly though, her date of death was never added. See photo #2 (taken by John VanCamp in 2016). The Williams are buried in Kidwell, West Virginia, in the Lazear Chapel Cemetery there. <> Visit our website for more of our post mortem and mourning photography collection.
