I need help with ancestors Williams that lived in Oneida county and also NY city, in NY. Some members are in the Acacia cemetery, Suwalki section in NY city. In particular, the Oneida county Williams' came to the USA around 1883-1885 being born in 1861-1864; Charles and Sophia/Sofia came as a couple and had 9 children, 6 of which survived by 1900. I can not find immigration and citizenship records to find out what may have been the family name in Europe as I suspect Williams was not originally their last name .

I know where the graves of Charles (died in 1941) and Sophia Williams (died in 1949) are in Utica, NY. It is an old and closed cemetery that belongs to Congregation Zvi Jacob between Waverly Pl and Watson Pl near highway 5. I may need a volunteer to take pictures when I contact the synagogue and if I get permission to do so. Thank you for your help in advance.

I live a 90 or so minute easy ride from Utica, would be willing to go there in the spring (we just had over 2' of snow). Please do find out the details and feel free to contact me again.
