Carrie Williams, brothers Thomas, Merton and John (seated).
Merton Y. Williams, was born in Bloomfield, son of  Edwin Allison Williams and Carrie Bowerman. He had a brilliant career as a geology professor at UBC.  Merton brought his research and writing skills to genealogy and left behind a body of quality work. Instead of formally publishing his major genealogy works, he distributed copies to family members and a few copies to institutions such as UBC, Picton Library, etc. Recently, niece Anne E. Williams has acceded her copies to the Prince Edward County Archives. Read his extensive obituary from the Picton Gazette.

His works on this web site:

  • William Mullett & Mary Clothier Family in Canada 1821 - 1869, Merton Y. Williams, 1964. The pdf's below were also made with permission from the copy given by Anne E Williams to the Prince Edward Archives. Note: The original document is very faint resulting in poor text conversion for searching. You will need to read the text.
