Link to Distant Cousins
On Monday Andrew Jackson Williams died at his residence at Navesink in his 65th year. His disease was sciatic rheumatism and he suffered greatly from it during the last few months. Mt. Williams was born and reared in the village of Navesink, and he spent most of his life there. His first business venture was in the South, where he had a commission trade. Afterward he went to New York and engaged in the produce commission business. His habits were so methodical and his honesty and fidelity were so marked that he soon established an excellent trade. It was remarked of him that he would work harder to secure a good sale of the farmers' products than any of his competitors. He held the office of school trustee one term at Navesink, but showed no ambition for political preferment. Mr. Williams leaves a widow and five children, all grown up except one. His funeral will take place at the Methodist church at Navesink on Friday morning at eleven o'clock, and his body will be laid in Fairview cemetery.
