  1. I am seeking information about my g g GR Father Benjamin Franklin WILLIAMS age 6-12 in 1838-1840 who had an operation (Cleft Pallet)in St Louis and the odd thing my father Loyd WILLIAMS also had the operation sometime near 1912-15 and my brother Lary G. WILLIAMS about 1946-47 IF there are any sugestions you have in finding out about these extrmely odd curcumstances I would appreciate hearing frem you Jack Williams,

  2. Jack, cleft pallet is a hereditery annomaly in the gene pool. Check with a genetic counselor but I think it is a 1 in 4 chance unless it is coming down both sides of the family which could raise it to 3 in 4. Since it is being found in the males of the family, it may be sex-linked on the y-chromosome.

  3. Mary , Thank you for the reply about cleft pallets, my main object was to try and find a Doctor that would have treated a boy of Ben’s age -n the early 1800’s and then his grand son Loyd also his great grand son (Loyd)’s son my brother Larry all in St Louis, Mo. You see I am not sure who our parents before Ben and Mary married approx. 1859 in Wabash City IL her maiden name was unknown, but thought she may have been married to Ben’s brother, Abram if he had one , so I have no information on Ben’s parents, brothers,sister,aunts,uncle or of Mary “Elizabeth” “T” “F” she was listed as Mary T. Aunt Polly Williams on her tombstone at Liberty Cemetary, Garfield,Benton, Arkansas. Thanks for the interest Jack Williams 1814 North I Street, Fort Smith, AR.72901-1742
