Linnie was born in Richmond, St. Croix Co., Wisconsin in 1883 the the daughter of Patrick H. Williams (1854-1936) and Betsy “Bettie” Seely (1858-1947). In 1906, she married William Phylitis Davis (1876-1960), with whom she had two daughters. One of these daughters, Maxine (my paternal great grandmother), they adopted in 1912; and the other, Virginia, was born a few years later in 1915.
