Erwin Eugene "Gene" Williams and Ruth Evelyn Snyder

Ervin Eugene "Gene" Williams, son of Doug and Mina Barnes Williams. He was in World War II in the Air Force, hauling supplies and carrying out wounded behind the lines in the European Theatre. He was shot down 7 times, and the last time was taken as a POW of the Germans for 10 days before the US won the war.

When he got out of the war, he met Ruth Evelyn Snyder from Bedford Co., daughter of Charles Russell Snyder and Virgie Koontz. Their first son was Roger Eugene Williams.
