Mrs. Ila Reinstedt family letter

 Collection — Folder: S2725
Identifier: S2725

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of a typescript copy of a letter written by Mrs. Ila Reinstedt, who lived in Washington, Missouri, in 1936. In the letter, she relates what she knows of the genealogy of the Williams family from which she was descended. The original of her letter is the property of Harry Neimeyer.

The genealogical information Mrs. Reinstedt relates centers around two personalities. The first is Rinda WIlliams (Rinda French, later Rinda Stockdale), who died in Samesa, California. The second personality is Rev. Joseph Williams, who made two trips to Oregon in the 1940s and only quit a third attempt to travel Oregon when "he realized he was too old." Rev. Williams was married twice and had over ten children.
