Isle of Pines, CubaEdit

On December 20, 1910 both Myrtle Adelia Lattin and Charles Haley Williams were aboard the ship "S.S. Havana", travelling from Havana, Cuba to New York. It is possible that this is how they met.


  • Fredrick Andrew Williams (1923- ) says: "The first of our family to California were my father and mother, Charles Haley Williams and Myrtle Adelia Lattin in 1921. They went to California as speculators and my father bought a farm there. My granddad, Fredrick Howard Williams, bought a piece of land in Burbank, California where he grew walnuts."
