Submitted by Shelly Duncan, January 3, 2000

"Mr. LLEUELLYN WILLIAMS, the subject of this sketch, was born in Milford Center, Otsego Co., NY, July 5, 1870. At the age of five years he removed with his parents to the town of Liverpool, Onondaga Co. NY. At the age of twelve years he began learning his trade as a baker at Oneonta, NY. The first of January, 1894, Mr. Williams began an engagement with Mr. Alonzo Almy of this town, which lasted nine years. He married Miss Mollie E. Wainright, Oct. 25, 1894. Mr. Williams branched out in business for himself, March 1, 1903, and rented the bakery in the Watson Building. Being a superior workman, making unimpeachable bread and cake and possessing a host of friends, he has enjoyed a large and lucrative business. In addition he has opened an ice cream parlor and has a soda fountain from which he draws the most cooling and satisfying of beverages in the season. The quality of his ice cream is pronounced by his customers to be the very finest, and that it is not excelled by any they have ever tasted in city parlors. Mr. Williams sells also a choice line of confectionery. His bread and cake are his specialties. He uses the best of material in their manufacture, and spares no pains in order to suit the tastes of his customers. He fills special orders at short notice. Mr. Williams is a very obliging and genial business man."
