William Williams and Thomas McKean were members of the Continental Congress who both signed the Declaration of Independence. Williams was from Connecticut, where he served in the state legislature. He was elected to the Continental Congress in 1776, too late to vote for independence. McKean had been Clerk of the Assembly of Delaware, and was a Delegate to the Stamp Act Congress in 1775. After being President of Congress, he attended the convention to ratify the U.S. Constitution in 1787.
