WCGS is happy to introduce our 2020 inductees into the Civil War Famlies of Williams County lineage group! They have been diligent in their research to prove their relationship to a Civil War Soldier with ties to Williams County. 3 members proved a direct line ancestor, while 1 proved a collateral line ancestor.  Congratulations!

CWFWC celebrates our ancestors who served in the Civil War.  The ancestor can be either a direct lineage or a collateral lineage and must have Williams County ties.  The ancestor needs to have been born in, lived in, died in or be buried in Williams County OR have served in a Williams County Regiment.  The collateral lineage would be a sibling to a direct ancestor and would need to provide documentation of the direct lineage and the proof of the sibling relationship.  Military service documentation needs to also need to be proven.

Any current member of WCGS who is a direct or collateral descendant of a Civil War ancestor.
