Thomas Lanier Williams (1911-1983) was born in Canton, Mississippi to Cornelius Coffin Williams (1879-1957) and Edwina Dakin (1884-1980). Thomas was better known as Tennessee Williams, the great American playwright. Williams descended from English ancestors who settled early in both New England and the southern colonies.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
