A woman descended from Frances Williams found his book here: My father was thrilled to be able to read this and has already spent some time aligning his ancestry learnings against some of the names in the book. He confirmed . . . that Francis Williams is his fourth cousin, one time removed. The ability for people to look back and gain insight and knowledge about who they are and where they came from is such a thrill . . . or at least, it is for us.
Robin Brooks at The Beauty of Books designed the self-published family memoir A Sense of Place: A Story of the Williams Family Farm by Rachel Cohn-Rottenberg. It is about the Williams family and the farm that has become Red Gate Farm today.
Rachel visited Francis Williams until his death in February of 2007. She began by taking the elderly Francis on as someone she might help and befriend. Rachel was the one that Francis helped.
He helped her learn how to slow down and how to listen to the quiet. He taught her about all there was to hear in the stillness. He taught her about a quiet grace.
This book is beautifully and thoughtfully written. Softcover 7” x 9”
