My mother was Helen Elizabeth Williams (b 06/30/1918 in Sisseton, Roberts County, South Dakota, USA. She was the daughter of Charles Williams and Grace.
That is the only information I have. I have been able to locate three (3) Charles Williams in the area--1 in Yankton South Dakota, one in Roberts county, South Dakota, and one in Alto, Roberts County, South Dakota. The one in Yankton was approximately 80 to 100 miles to where my mother was born--therefore unlikely. The second was 52 when my mother was born, possible, but not probable. The third was 41 at my mother's birth, Possible...but full name was Charles Wambdi changed to Charles Williams....So, I am at a dead end.
Is there anyone that can confirm that my mother existed?
Looking at the census records for state, your best bet would be to follow the Charles Williams in Sisseton line. Do you know any of your mother's siblings besides "Gussie?" Gussie was probably a nickname...perhaps for Gertrude, a sister on the census records. Other siblings listed as Wendel and Mary Jane Williams. Charles died post 1930 and it shows that his occupation was veterinarian in general practice. I would work on a death date and try and obtain an obituary to get further information. The mother, Grace, is listed as a librarian and also died post 1930, good chance there is an obituary out there for her. Charles is 12 years older than his wife Grace, so I would not count him out just because of his age when Helen was born.
I did locate a family tree with this information. I don't know if it is yours or if you have seen it but they have Charles Williams as the son of John Williams b. 9 April 1822 in Ohio, moved to Minnesota where he had a son Charles and then went to Iowa where he died in 25 May 1905. The mother is listed as Jane Burkhart born 1836. It was John's second wife. John is listed as a Veterinarian just as his son Charles is in later census records. It shows Charles living in Roberts County with Grace and the four above listed children from the 1920 and 1930 census. He and Grace were living in Waubay Ward, South Dakota in 1910 with their eldest daughter Mary Jane.
There are some good leads to follow to confirm if the census records from 1920/1930 in Sisseton are indeed your family.
