HI All

A little of the info I have on Williams Family to date

Thomas Williams B.1788, Faughanvale, L/ seems in a small place called Tocher lough... Tocherlaugh (the place name was on his discharge papers from the national archives)
He met and married Susannah whilst he was a Gunner in the Royal Horse Artillery fighting at Waterloo; he took Susannah back to Faughanvale where they raised a family of 12/13 children until Thomas died B4 1857c Susannah then came to Port Glasgow where some of her children lived until her death on June 23rd 1869. We also have a newspaper article on her from when she died and that of her son Seamons titled the “Waterloo Hero Widow dies”.

Susannah’s parents:
Paul Simons/Seamons (Polish/Hungarian)
Anna Anthon or Dannoie

Anna’s parents
Nicolai Anthon (Belgian/French)
Anne Dannoie/Dannoce? Not sure of spelling as it is difficult to read on Susannah’s death cert

I have 99% of the info on the BMD’s of the above, which brings me up to 2006
It is 1700 Londonderry and Belgium where I seem to be hitting the proverbial brick wall, the latter’s sites are mainly in Dutch or French, with documents in Latin, And Proni isn’t on - line yet!!!!!.

Any help or a pointer in the right direction would be much appreciated, or just a thought from someone looking at it from a different angle may just start the ball rolling again.

Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help….. And I will help in return if I can…. (Port Glasgow /West Coast of Scotland area)
