C.H. Williams was born at Centerville, Iowa, in 1856. He came overland with a team to Deer Lodge in 1882 enduring many hardships en route. He began the ranching business and has made a great success of the raising of sheep and cattle. He has the finest ranch in Powell county and one that is said to be the best in the West. He has built a beautiful country home on his ranch and has unusually good improvements on the farm. He is a modest, unassuming man, popular in the community, and a liberal supporter of all movements to make Deer Lodge valley the most highly developed agricultural region in the West. In commendation of his character he has been nominated on the republican ticket for state senator.
