Dr. William H. Williams of Whitesboro is one of the well established physicians of Oneida county, New York. He was born in Wales, on November 15, 1888, the second child of William and Jane (Williams) Williams. William Williams came to America in 1889, settling near Remsen, New York, and engaged in farming, but later moved to the town of Marcy, where he followed the same occupation. He now resides in the town of Marcy, and there his wife died in 1912.

William H. Williams was educated in the public school in the town of Marcy, attended Prof. Rix's Preparatory School in Utica, New York, and subsequently entered Syracuse University, where he took both the academic and medical courses and was graduated in 1914 with the degree of M. D., after which he served one year interneship at St. Luke's Hospital in Utica, and then came to Whitesboro, Oneida county, and established practice.

On June 24, 1915, in Utica, New York, Dr. Williams was united in marriage to Miss Bessie A. Ryan, daughter of Thomas and Ellen (Horrigan) Ryan of Florence, New York. Mrs. Williams is active in the church circles of St. Paul's Catholic church of Whitesboro. Dr. and Mrs. Williams are the parents of five sons: George, Robert, Arthur, Roger and William.

Dr. Williams is a member of the staff of St. Luke's Hospital, Utica, and president of St. Luke's Clinical Society, a member of the American, New York State and Oneida County Medical Societies, and also health officer of the towns of Marcy and Floyd and the village of Yorkville. His college fraternity is the Nu Sigma Nu. For diversion Dr. Williams enjoys fishing, motoring, gardening and flowers. He resides at No. 90 Main street, in a bungalow which occupies the site of one of the first houses built in the village.
