I have been searching and searching for my father who’s name is Hampton “Sonny” Williams and maybe finally found something. However, I need confirmation. He may have been married to the late Frances Williams. His sister’s name is Lydia, that’s all I know of any family. In 1988, he and his wife came to Hopi in hopes to find me, I was living in Utah at the time. I wish I had been at Hopi to finally meet him. I believe he may be resting in peace, however, if there is any family out there please respond to my message..hope to meet Hampton’s family soon….much love.
