John Herbert Williams
by Loretta (Williams) Houben
My Dad, John Herbert Williams, was born on July 1st, 1929, in Spalding, Saskatchewan, Canada, in a little cabin on a farm. His parents were John Griffith Williams and Alma May Palmer. Dad has many memories of farm life. As I update these family history pages, I will add to them bit by bit. To begin with, this is the earliest photo I have of my Dad, taken when he was a few months old:
Unfortunately, little Jackie as he was called, is covered in eczema, due to the fact that his Mummy fed him the top cream from the milk, which he was allergic to as it was too rich for him. I just love this photo. Look at his little hands holding onto his parent's hands!
Little Jackie is sitting
on his Grandma Florence Palmer's lap, outside on the farm in Spalding
Saskatchewan, in what looks like very cold weather!
