Family Autos

Automobiles have played an important part of the family experience over the years. William David Williams, the father of C.T. Williams, purchased one of the first automobiles in Edgecombe County. A widower with three young sons, Willie, John and Charles, Dave said that an automobile was needed so his sons could ride off and fine a bride. Even with a car to tool around the county, the sons found wives close by home. C.T., J.D. and Phillip all sold automobiles during their careers, and others had a fascination with vehicles. Ken Williams did an oil painting of his first car, a l965 Mustang, during high school and has shown a love for cars since.
