Looking for parents of Anna Williamson Engert

We've tried to deal with the children of Anna Engert -- her son William is in the 1880 census twice.

https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/632995/in-the-census-twice

This time I'm asking about her parents. My mother recorded them as James Williamson (no other data) and Lena Gardner (maybe 1793-1863). Any information out there?

Anna's profile has all I know about her.

1900 Census,has her mother as Anna E, Engert .On census sheet.
by Wayne Morgan G2G6 Pilot (917k points)
That 1900 Census shows the Anna Rebecca (Williamson) Engert as the mother of Mary Ellen Engert in the family of Walter Kinney. I'm looking for Anna's mother. I already saw that the census record has the middle initial of "E" and my mother's record show a middle name of "Rebecca." I've had enough issues of with the census that I'll stick to Rebecca until I have more reliable sources.

Marriage

Name: Ann Rebecca Williamson
Gender: Female
Marriage Date: 15 Aug 1845
Spouse: John Augustus Engert
Spouse Gender: Female

According to my mother's records Clara and William Williamson are likely the children of Warren Williamson, Anna's brother. This is at least worth exploring.

Thank you for the marriage record. I didn't have that.

Family trees are generally not considered a "source" as they are frequently incorrect. Actual documents are what are needed on profiles to insure accuracy in data.
