WILLIAMS, Frank Vause

Mr. Frank Vause Williams, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Williams, died Friday, October 6, 1911, aged about 45 year. He was born at Williamsport, Grant Co, where his father was a merchant for many years. From early childhood he lived with his uncle, Hon. Charles Williams, on his large grain and stock farm, near Williamsport, until his uncle was drowned in Pattersons Creek several years ago. After that he engaged in the mercantile business at Medley. A few years ago his health failed and he retired from active business. The funeral services were held in Keyser Presbyterian Church last Sunday afternoon and were conducted by Rev. M. B. Lambdin, the pastor. The body was buried in Queen's Point Cemetery. The pall bearers were W. W. Wood, R. D. Shull, P. H. Keys, R. A. Welch, Dr. L. H. Gaston and Richard Keys. A large assembly of his old and true friends attended the services.

WILLIAMS, Henry

Mr. Henry Williams, a prominent resident of Frostburg, and formerly a member of the board of county commissioners of Allegany county, died at his Frostburg home last night at 9:30 o'clock. Death resulted from a complication of diseases from which Mr. Williams had suffered for many weeks. Mr. Williams was 71 years old. He was born in Breckinshire in the south of Wales and remained in his native country until thirty-five years ago, when he came to America and settled in Frostburg. He established a marble yard at Frostburg and followed that business for a number of years or until his son succeeded him and the deceased thereafter engaged in general contracting and building. The stone work of the best structures in Frostburg was executed by him. In 1871 he journeyed from Frostburg to Des Moines, Iowa, where he cut the stone for the capitol building of that state. Besides his prominence in a business sense, Mr. Williams was conspicuous in politics and in public matters generally. Besides holding the office of county commissioner, he at other times served in the town council of Frostburg and was always identified with public affairs in the town. Mr. Williams was a member of the English Baptist church of Frostburg, and for twenty years served on the Baptist board of Baltimore. He was a charter member of Frostburg lodge No. 88, Knights of Pythias, and was also a member of the Order of Forresters. In all matters with which he was identified publicly or privately, Mr. Williams displayed a character that was above reproach, a degree of good judgment that became a man of high standing and a generous consideration for the rights and welfare of his neighbors commanded to him the respect of everybody and the friendly devotion of many. He is survived by a widow, one son and six daughters. His son is Mr. J. B. Williams, the marble yard man of Frostburg and Cumberland. His daughters are Mrs. Thos. Price, Mrs. C. C. Wright, Misses Annie and Tyrzah Williams, Frostburg, and Mrs. D. P. Hartzell and Mrs. Aden Dillon, of Cumberland. Two brothers and one sister of the deceased reside in Wales, and one brother, Mr. Jas. D. Williams, lives in Frostburg. The funeral will take place Monday afternoon with services in the Baptist church, Frostburg, at two o'clock. The burial will take place in Allegany cemetery at Frostburg.

WILLIAMS, Michael B.
 
Martinsburg, W.Va. - Spring's colorful emergence with the promise of new life everywhere was briefly interrupted by the passing of a kind and generous friend. Michael B. Williams, 50, passed life's final marker at approximately 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 8, 2000. Born Oct. 31, 1949, he was the son of the late Camey and Rita Williams. He is survived by his beloved wife, Linda, of 726 John St., Martinsburg, and brother John C., of 46 Wright St., Frostburg, Md., and Baltimore. Michael was educated in the public schools in Allegany County and received a B.S. degree in 1972 from Frostburg State College, and a Master's Degree in Adlerian Psychology from Bowie State University in 1975. Upon graduation, he was employed by the Burlington Home for Children, Burlington. He later transferred to a counseling position at Colin-Anderson Residential Facility for the Mentally Retarded, Parkersburg, where he was recognized with a Governor's Achievement Citation for his work there with one particular patient. Michael had many hobbies and interests including fishing, gardening and gourmet cooking. He was regarded by many as one of the best fishermen in Western Maryland, skills he learned from his grandfather, the late Camey Williams, Sr., and his father, Camey, Jr. He practiced his considerable talents on the Savage River and Bear Creek, as well as on the South Branch of the Potomac and the Shenandoah around Martinsburg. He had a life-long love of the natural, scintillating beauty of West Virginia. Additionally, Michael was a member of Trout Unlimited and the Isaac Walton League. Finally, no mention of Michael's life would be complete without acknowledging his inseparable bond with his pet of 14 years, Annie, a mixed breed he retrieved from an animal shelter. His rescue of this dog from a certain fate was emblematic of his feelings expressed toward others: kindness and generosity. Friends will be received at the Sowers Funeral Home, Main Street, Frostburg, on Monday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Services will be conducted at the funeral home at 11 a.m. on Tuesday. Interment will follow in the Frostburg Memorial Park.
