Carrie and Ed Williams

Early pioneer, Nate Williams, was a colorful character,  known as a trapper, hunter, prospector, house mover, mason, miner, horse trader and trailer breaker, among other things.

You hear less about his brother Ed and his wife Carrie.

Ed was there helping Nate build the Williams Garage, which we know today as Tall Timbers. And Ed and his wife had a son Clarence who was one of EHS’s first athletes. Clarence is shown here on the 1916 basketball team — left of coach B.W. Lyon.

You can be quiet and still have an impact.
