  • Name William LILLIE 
    Born 29 Oct 1817  Edwards, St. Lawrence, New York Find all individuals with events at this location  [2, 3, 4, 5
    Gender Male 
    History Living with his son, Charles Lillie and his daughter, Eliza Lillie in the 1880 census. Everyone on the internet has copied the same birth date for William Lillie as 23 Oct 1817, however, his headstone is clearly marked as 29 Oct 1817. I have been unable to locate a birth certificate which would resolve the matter. For now I’ll use the headstone date until someone can provide documentation to the contrary.

    THE LOCATION OF THE THOMPSON AND LILLIE HOMESTEADS
    From Williams, California - Starting at the corner of E Street and 9th Street, drive west on E Street which turns into State Highway 20 and runs from Williams to Clear Lake, California. Travel west for 8.6 miles to Walnut Road. Take a right turn (west) on Walnut. Travel 3.8 miles on this road that goes to Leesville. and you will come to the old site of the Mountain House. This site is also known as Venado. All that remains of this old hotel and stage stop is several out buildings in various states of disrepair. Continue on the paved road which forks at the Mountain House and it may be difficult to recognize it as a fork. Keep to the right, (north) and continue for 1.9 miles to the THOMPSON homestead. The old two story house stood to the right (north) side of the road. The total distance from Williams is 14.3 miles.
    To the LILLIE homestead continue on the same road in the same direction for 0.6 miles to the LILLIE homestead. The old two story house built of redwood stood to the left (South) of the road.
