The 1822 will5752 of John Williamson mentions son Peter. After specific bequeasts to other children, Peter and his brother William were given half-shares in the estate, with provisions to support their mother.

The will5750 of Peter Williamson, of Knox, Albany Co., NY; names executors James Visscher "my son in law" and William Williamson "my brother;" bequeaths $100 to his eldest son J R Williamson; bequeaths $100 to his son William Williamson, if he make prudent use of his property; bequeaths to daughter Mary Visscher, daughter Laura Beebe and daughter Susan, the balance of his property, real and personal, share and share alike; in case daughter Susan "now supposed to reside in California" shall be living at the time of his decease, her shared to be divided between daughters Mary and Laura; the executors are required to authorize a plain monument or tomb stone to be placed at his grave; the same for the grave his father and mother, the value not to exceed $36. He signed the will Aug 16, 1866. It was witnessed by Frederick Crounse Jr, Guilderland Albany County; and Nicholas J Winney, Knox Albany County. The will was proved Dec 21, 1866, by Israel Lawton, Surrogate.

In 1865, 1870 and 1875, Sarah Williamson resided5756 5754 5757 in the household of her son-in-law, James P Visscher, his wife being Sarah's daughter Mary.

Child 4. William

William's birth date is a guess based on his father's will{super 5750}, in which J R Williamson is stated to be Peter's eldest son.

Child 5. Susan

The will5750 of Peter Williamson mentions daughter Susan, "now supposed to reside in California."

Research and documentation for Susan is, at this time, incomplete. "Mrs M R Maddocks" is mentioned5747 in the obituary of John R Williamson as one of two surviving sisters. An unsourced DAR lineage688, DAR ID 65462, Susan Williamson may have married Moses R Maddocks.
