Son of Andrew Bokman Williams and Abigail Lewis Williams. Lemuel and his family lived in the Plumb Hollow Iowa Branch from 1850 to 1852. Although his father's obituary says they traveled to Utah in 1852 this is almost certainly incorrect because a son (Amos) was born at Council Bluffs, Iowa in December 1852 and a daughter (Abigail) was born in Utah in March 1854. At the time of the 1856 Utah census the family was living in Provo, Utah. Additional research is needed to identify the name of the pioneer company with which his family crossed the plains.
