We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

    Notes 
    • I do not yet know that the Robert Williamson in the census records listed here refer to this Robert, son of Robert Stedman Williamson, but I am adding the records, and adding his wife and children, to keep track of the information. (There was another Robert Williamson, born about 1870 in Philadelphia, son of Robert and Margret Williamson. Both parents were born in Ireland. It's possible that all the children listed here in this family are those of this different Robert Williamson.)

      More information is needed but the naming of a daughter Ella makes it seem likely as that was also the name of his sister (or half-sister). Birth place of Philadelphia given in 1906 birth record of son Walter.

      In 1910 and 1920 Harry Voigt, aged 37 and 47, b. PA, parents b. Germany, was boarding with them.

      In 1920 Robert's occuption is given as Foreman - woolen mill.

      In 1930, Robert E. Williamson is in Lower Merion, Montgomery Co. Wife Alverta is listed, age 58, daughter Dorothy, age 19 and divorced daughter Alverta M. Higgins. Harry Voigt, age 56, is again boarding with them.

      Robert's death certificate names his deceased wife as Alverda M. Williamson and his father only as ___ Williamson. Neither his mother's given name nor her surname are known. He died in a Philadelphia hospital but his usual residence was West Manayunk, Montgomery Co.
