Hazel’s family history begins with her paternal grandparents Rev. Miles and Beatrice Bryant Williams to this union three children were born. They were Robertia, Frank and Mary Joyce Williams.

Frank and Minnie taught them the ways of a spiritual, mental, physical and educational life. The children are as follow Velmos, Florence, Hazel (my grandmother), Frank Jr., Napoleon, Irva, Georgia B and James. In addition to their own children, this couple reared two grandchildren as their own. Which were Wesley Williams and Leneverett Tabb.

Frank and Minnie were both a member of St. Mary #1 MB Church until death. Frank was a well respected and reputable farmer. Also, he was a member of the trustee board where he served for a number of years. Minnie was a homemaker and was very active in the community and church affairs. She served as president of the usher board for 44 years.

In essence, Frank and Minnie Williams left a beautiful number of grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, sons-in-laws and daughter-in-laws to be honorned as being a part of the Williams and Moore families. God Bless You All.
