Biographical history

Thomas Williams (1810-1899) was a Methodist minister. Born in London, England of Welsh descent, his family emigrated to Pennsylvania but later moved to Canada out of loyalty to the British. He was a soldier and a surveyor’s assistant who helped survey most of Oro, Medonte, Flos and Orillia townships.
He was ordained in 1945 and proved to be an ardent preacher whose sole purpose was to bring souls closer to Christ. He served fourteen years in the Indian missions at Cape Croker and Garden River and two years as chair of the District of Algoma.

He was married to Deborah Keays.
