When Hank Williams died lonely on the backseat of his Cadillac on January 1 in 1953, he not only left behind his son Hank Williams Jr.. He also left behind his unborn daughter Jett Williams, who saw the light of day five days after Hank Williams’ light ceased shining.
For 21 years Jett Williams had no idea that she was Hank Williams daughter. She grew up as an adopted child and it took her years to prove that she is Williams’ daughter. The thorough multimedia presentation Orphan Child Finds Her Place (The Tennessean) tells her moving story in detail.
