B. J. WILLIAMS

Author, artist and friend, many WILLIAMS ended up in Québec because their ancestors came to Nova Scotia via the Underground Railroad in order to escape slavery in the U.S. From the Maritimes, the WILLIAMS headed west, some remaining in Québec. Other descendants eventually returned to the U.S. B.J. did not do any genealogical research on his WILLIAMS family, so, at this point, we don't know how they ended up in Wappingers Falls, NY. On the other hand, BJ left NY to live for a few years in New Orleans, follwed by a year in Australia. and is now in California where he continues writing. Click on BJ's name above to check out the books he has written and many of his paintings. In the NEWS section of his homepage, you will find his monthly report as to his productivity.

  1. I’m sure there are no relatives in Canada and none that are French. It is all English, Irish, Dutch, German & American Indian.
