Originally added to the East End Cemetery database, FindaGrave, July 31, 2015. We were the first to identify, research, and confirm his burial in East End Cemetery through records from the National Archives in Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, we were not informed by the Friends of East End that his burial site had been found in 2017 (I suppose we had to be a partner to receive that information). Nevertheless, we are happy that Henry Williams’ grave site has been located within the cemetery.
