William Williams, Founder

From The Founders, Religion and Government:

"[William Williams] made a profession of religion at an early age, and through the long course of his life, he was distinguished for a humble and consistent conduct and conversations. While yet almost a youth, he was elected to the office of deacon, an office which he retained during the remainder of his life. His latter days were chiefly devoted to reading, mediation, and prayer."
~ The Reverend Charles A. Goodrich, Lives of the Signers to the Declaration of Independence (1834)

Today marks the anniversary of the death of Founder William Williams of Connecticut. Williams was a minister, merchant, delegate to the Continental Congress, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
