Williams Potato Chip Company

Please take a look at this very interesting entry taken from William Kernan’s Wordpress site outlining his connection through family to the Williams Potato Chip Company.

“By 1920, Bettie and her children founded Williams & Company, which made Williams Saratoga Chips. By the 1940’s, they had locations in Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. Her two sons, Frank and Leo ran the business, and more so as Bettie got older. The successfulness of the company enabled Bettie to enjoy a more affluent lifestyle than she had, owning homes in Portland and San Francisco. She died in 1947 at the age of 88 in Hillsboro, Washington Co, Oregon, USA.”
