John Williams was born in Fayette County, Ohio., in 1827; moved with his parents to Noble County, Ind.; thence to Mason County, Ill.; thence to Jefferson twp.; Harrison County, Ia., where he now resides. He owns a well-improved farm of 650 acres. He makes a specialty of raising fine stock. He has some very fine horses and one thoroughbred stallion, which were imported from France at cost of $2,500. In fact we may say that Mr. Williams has one of the finest stock farms in Western Iowa. He was married in 1849 to Sarah Anderson, of Noble County, Ind. They have three sons and five daughters.
