    • New York Times Aug. 26, 1901 Gen. Robert Williams Dead He Married the Widow of Stephen A. Douglas, Who Had Been His Rival for Her Years Before. Plainfield, N.J., Aug 25—Brig. Gen. Robert Williams died last night at the Hotel Netherwood, about one mile from this city, from an attack of apoplexy. He was seventy-two years old and had been spending the Summer there with his three daughters, his home being in Washington, D.C. Born in Virginia on Nov. 5, 1820, Gen. Williams was appointed to a cadetship at West Point and was graduated after his four years; course with the rank of Brevet Second Lieutenant of the First Dragoons. On July 15, 1831, he was made a Second Lieutenant, and on June 7, 1835 a First Lieutenant. On Aug. 8, 1861, he was promoted to a Captaincy, and soon afterward was made Assistant Adjutant General of The United States. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having served from October, 1861, to October, 1862, as Colonel of the First Massachusetts Cavalry. He was in the battle of Antitam, and served as Assistant Adjutant General. He retired from active service on Nov. 5, 1893, at sixty-four years of age. There was a little romance connected with his marriage to the widow of Stephen A. Douglas. Her maiden name was Addie Cutts, and she was a famous Washington Belle. Young Williams courted her while he was yet a cadet at West Point, and Douglas entered the field as a rival and won. When he died she married her old lover. She died in 1899, and he had remained a widower since. He leaves three sons and three daughters, First Lieut. Robert C. Williams of the Thirteenth Cavalry, now in Montana; Second Lieut. J.C. Williams of the Twelfth Infantry, at Manila; Lieut. Philip Williams, United States Navy, also at Manila; Mrs. J.C. Patton, wife of Lieut. Patton, United States Navy, and Misses Addie C. and Mildred Williams. The daughters were with the General when he died. The body was taken to Washington this afternoon and will have a military funeral there. The date for this has not been fixed. At the time Gen. Williams died the usual Saturday evening hop was at its height at the hotel. As soon as his death was made known the festivities ceased and the hotel flag was placed at half mast.
