Williams County Ohio- History

Williams County Ohio was originally formed in 1820. The county was named after David Williams who had been a Revolutionary War Hero. The original county seat has been in Defiance. This was changed when the area around Defiance became a county of the same name in 1845. The current county seat is in Bryan. Williams is bordered by Michigan to the North, Indiana to the west, Fulton Co. to the east and Henry Co. to the Southeast.

Tomorrow I will begin by profiling birth records in this county. Have a great day.
