3   W. L. Williams Cemetery Deed 
"I grew up in Belknap ( population 235) and was born in l934.  There were 2 general stores there and one was W. L. Williams or Uncle Billie (Billy).  His family had the one store and they had a beautiful 2 story home next door.  I have pictures of all the town children (me too) on their front lawn with Uncle Billie when it was apparently his birthday and although  I don't know I would say he was in his late 80's or early 90's.  There were 2 other adults in the house, Myrtle and Levi that must have been his children but I don't remember Uncle Billie having a wife or she may have died previously.  The store has been torn down and the house burned from a lighting strike.  My aunt worked at the store and later purchased it. She passed away in 1972.   I began working there for her at age 13 until I graduated high school. We had a gasoline pump in front, vinegar in a barrel, and live chickens in a coop out back, dry goods, shotgun shells, etc." Bobbie

Hi I have seen your information on Belknap, Illinois a couple of times and I knew my Gr Aunt Thelma Knight Richards and family had once lived there, so several months ago,  I called Thelma's daughter, my Mothers 1st cousin, Carolyn Richards Decker and had her look the photos up on her computer.  I thought she would probably be one of the children shown.  Carolyn, may have contacted you, I don't know, as I have not spoken to her in awhile.  She recognized many  of the people in the photo, although she did not see herself or her younger Sister Jill and then she recalled her family had moved to Chicago for a time and it was at the time the picture was taken.   I have been doing genealogy for years and though you probably know Carolyn, I don't know if you knew her mother Thelma was born Thelma Knight, to James "Frank" and Nancy Addie Brock Knight, this couple lived in Pulaski Co., Illinois, usually Olmstead, although they did travel as he was a "Fished and Shrimped" in the winter months making his way down the Mississippi River, often with his family, camping along the way.  Addie Knight died when Thelma was only about 1& 1/2 yrs, she was the youngest of Frank Knights 4 living children.  (he had a brief second and a long 3rd marriage) and Frank and Ruby Knight had 4 more children who grew to adulthood, although they mainly lived in Pulaski County.  Back to Thelma, she was raised by ? Graham and his wife, they also tragically died when Thelma was a child, then Thelma went to live with and be raised by the Wyatts. I don't know if the Wyatts lived in Belknap or moved there when Thelma was a child.  I don't know if they were related to her or just a couple that wanted a child to love and care for.  Thelma married Morgan Richards and they had 2 daughters Carolyn and Jill.  Once when I was looking online for Belknap families, I noticed Felkers lived there and Thelma was probably related to them as Frank Knights Grandmother was Lydia nee Felker Guess . They lived in Livingston County, Ky.  I do not know anything about the Wiliams' family.  I know quite a bit about our family genealogy  Thelma's parents, although I cannot locate Nancy "Addie" Brock Knights family on a census, so am stymied.  I think she was may have been raised in Marion, Illinois and her mothers maiden name was Springs.  With Regards, Sandy Firek, Michigan
