One of my projects this last month was to help a friend of our daughter with her genealogy. I started out with a few bits and bobs and found several lines in Williams County, so I'm going to post what I know.  I only researched her direct line (a lot to do in a short period of time), so if you're familiar with this line, drop me a comment or shoot me an email; I'll pass it along to her.

William Frederick Underwood is my third g-grandfather. We continue to seek the names of his parents. I do have much information on his children and am willing to share this information.
