Biography

Cynthia Sue 'Cindy' Williams

Birth

Date: May 19, 1954
Place: Uniontown, Fayette, Pennsylvania, United States

I am the youngest of five children and born nine years after the child before me.

Family

Father: Leo Huth Williams
Mother: Kathleen Mildred Maust
Siblings:
  1. Esta Joanne 'Jo' Williams
  2. Harry Lee Williams
  3. Edwin Ray 'Ed' Williams
  4. David Earl 'Dave' Williams
  • When I was two years old, in 1956, my Father got a job in Rockville, Montgomery, Maryland, United States and most of our family moved from Uniontown to Rockville. My sister Joanne Williams Crawford was married in 1955 and stayed in Uniontown where she lives today. My brothers Harry Williams, Ed Williams and David Williams all moved with the family to Rockville.
  • In 1964 our family moved from Rockville to Gaithersburg, Montgomery, Maryland, United States. Harry Williams had already moved to California in 1963. Ed Williams and David Williams both married in 1964 and lived nearby in Gaithersburg. We lived on a small farmette (just a little over five acres) and enjoyed living in the country instead of the suburbs.
  • I attended various schools in Montgomery County, Maryland starting with Twinbrook Elementary School, Rockville; Laytonsville Elementary School, Laytonsville; Gaithersburg Junior High School, Gaithersburg; and graduating from Gaithersburg High School, Gaithersburg in 1972.
  • My Mother and Father left from my graduation ceremony and moved to Orlando, Orange, Florida, United States. After a family trip in 1970 to Orlando my parents fell in love with Orlando and decided to move. After much drama on my teenage part, they agreed to wait until I graduated from high school. Thank you very much for that, Mom & Dad! The preliminary work for the move was all done long before I graduated June 12, 1972. My graduation present was the use of my Mother's car and staying the rest of the summer in Gaithersburg with friends.

Marriage #1

Husband: Gregory Wayne 'Greg' Spalding
Wife: Cynthia Sue 'Cindy' Williams
Date: August 15, 1972
Place: Olney, Montgomery, Maryland, United States
Divorce Date: March 29, 1984
Divorce Place: Orlando, Orange, Florida, United States
  • I arrived in Orlando in early August 1972 and decided that it was time to marry Greg Spalding. We married on August 15, 1972 in a hospital chapel (his Father was in the hospital) in Olney, Montgomery, Maryland, United States. Greg was in the Navy so after a short honeymoon trip (six weeks) to Alameda, Alameda, California, United States, I returned to live with my parents in Orlando in October 1972.
  • Greg was stationed in Oakland, Alameda, California, United States, so I moved out there in June 1973. My Mother and I drove across country with a U-Haul and all my worldly possessions and I lived in Oakland for less than a year. My brother, Harry Williams lived in San Jose, Santa Clara, California, United States with his family which was not far and we visited at least twice a month. Greg was transferred again to Washington, DC, United States in early 1974 and we moved back to Gaithersburg.
  • We moved in 1976 to Orlando along with my brother, David Williams and his wife Dorcas Thompson. We shared a very large U-Haul truck and moved both our households to Florida. My marriage to Greg Spalding lasted until March 1984 when we divorced.

Marriage #2

Husband: Robert Sheffield Lesure
Wife: Cynthia Sue 'Cindy' Williams
Date: February 11, 1989
Place: Winter Park, Seminole, Florida, United States[4]
Divorce Date: January 1998
Divorce Place: Orlando, Orange, Florida, United States
  • I lived on my own until I met my real husband, Robert Sheffield Lesure February 6, 1988. It was love at first sight! We were married February 11, 1989 in Winter Park, Orange, Florida, United States and we lived happily in Orlando. After my Father died in 1992[5], I really took it very hard and I became very difficult to live with. Robert and I separated in 1995 and we continued to see each other. We divorced in 1998 even though as I was driving to the Courthouse I was thinking, "Why am I doing this? Well, I already paid the money for it and he said either do it or do not do it." Robert Sheffield Lesure maintains to this day that all those events took place as they did so we could be in the place we are now. Absolutely have to love a man who says such a wonderful thing about his wife who was wrong! But he is absolutely right!

Marriage #3

Husband: Robert Sheffield Lesure
Wife: Cynthia Sue 'Cindy' Williams
Date: May 29, 1999
Place: Montevallo, Shelby, Alabama, United States
  • We remarried May 29, 1999 in Montevallo, Shelby, Alabama, United States at an immediate family reunion at my brother, Ed Williams's home. My oldest brother, Harry Williams performed the ceremony. It was wonderful to have all my siblings and their spouses along with some nieces and nephews to witness our reunion marriage.
  • That same year we bought a wonderful home in the Ocala National Forest in Altoona, Lake, Florida, United States and have lived there happily since that time. Our 'children' are our cats and we have had a wonderful variety of four-legged furry children. Currently, both of us are retired on disability and enjoy our home in the Forest.

  • Nieman Clan History compiled by Helen Marie (Newcomer) Maust. Aunt Helen attended most all the Nieman Family Reunions and the Frankhouser Family Reunions. She gathered information from family members who attended the Reunions over the years sharing information about family lore and updated information about each branch. Around 1980 she put information together by typewriter and created a very large document that included all of the information about the Nieman and Frankhouser clans. Both branches intertwined in various ways and trace back to the common ancestors of John Blosser who emigrated from Switzerland and was of German origin. In the following years, she provided updates after the reunions were over and she could add the new information gathered at the reunions to the document. That document has been scanned as a PDF file.
