The Perron Family Tree website at Ancestry.com shows shows that James Williamson was born in Ireland and had 2 daughters:

  1. Susanna Mary Williamson, born August 1865 in Armagh, Armagh County, Northern Ireland, and (
  2. Mary Williamson, born 23 November 1868, Dungannon, Tyrone Co., Northern Ireland.

Then, going to the "Maxwell/Black Family Tree" at Ancestry.com we find the following information:

1. James Williamson may have been born 1800-1820 and died before 1896.

He married Unknown. He had 1 or more children, including:

  1. James Williamson, born c. 1841 in Ireland. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2]

  2. Susanna Mary Williamson, b. Aug 1865 in Armagh, Armagh Co., Northern Ireland. . . . [3]

  3. Margaret Williamson, b. 1867, Ireland, and d. 1935, Glasgow, Scotland, age 68. She m. Robert Simpson on 18 May 1883. He was b. c. 1861, Ireland, son of William and Olive(?) Simpson. Children per Ancestry.com:
    1. James Simpson
    2. Robert Simpson
    3. Margaret Simpon
    4. William Simpson

  4. Mary Williamson, b. 23 Nov 1868, Dungannon, Tyrone Co., Northern Ireland. Note that this the same date and place as shown in the Perron tree, above. She m. Duncan Campbell who was b. c. 1866. Children:
    1. William Campbell, b. 1891, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.
    2. Thomas Campbell, b. c. 1893, and d. 11 Aug 1896, age 3.

  5. Elizabeth Jane (Jeanie) Williamson , b. 1 Feb 1871, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.

  6. James Williamson, b. 17 Mar 1874, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.

  7. Thomas Williamson, b. 1877, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, and d. 8 Jan 1897, Glasgow, age 20.

3. Susanna Mary Williamson, b. Aug 1865 in Armagh, Armagh Co., Northern Ireland, and d. 6 Sep 1904, age 39.

There is no daughter named Susanna, b. 1865, in the "Maxwell/Black Family Tree." However, there is a 7 year gap between William and Margaret which would cover Susanna. Since Mary is shown, above, with the same date as the Perron tree, that strongly indicates that Susanna was just missed.

Susanna married Clement Perron on 9 May 1892, Detroit, MI. Shey had 6 children per Ancestry.com..

  1. Florence Perron (1892-1989)

  2. Ernest A. Perron (1893-1975)
