Pioneer Homestead – Mt. Pleasant
Charles Thomas Williams and Family

Charles Thomas Williams and William John McCracken were the first settlers at Mt. Pleasant, selecting their adjoining properties on 27th July 1874.  Over time Charles Thomas Williams acquired a large land-holding in Mt. Pleasant and other nearby areas.

He married Elizabeth Watt in 1872 and they had three children Laura, born in 1874, sitting on the horse to the right, George born 1877, sitting on the other horse, and Violet born 1881 standing next to her mother.  This photograph must have been taken in the late 1880s or very early 1890s.

A Williams Family Research Day is being held at “Dayboro Cottage” on Friday 5th April 2019.  It is not too late to attend.  Email ddhs4521@gmail.com
