A FAMILY SETTING

Country singer Jett Williams spent eight years in court proving she was the out-of-wedlock daughter of Hank Williams Sr.

Now she has a memento from her family.

Pawnshop owners Harold and Betty Ehrlich on Monday gave her a German china tea set that her grandmother, Lillian Williams, had been making payments on before she died in 1955.

"This is the first thing and only thing I'll ever get from my grandmother," Ms. Williams said. "This is one of those things you can't put a price on."

The $14.95 tea set was never sold because the Ehrlichs had hoped to donate it to a Williams museum, but that never materialized.

Though she has legal title to her late father's name and is an heir to his songwriting royalties, she has few mementos of her biological family. She said the tea set will have a special place in her Nashville home.

"I'm going to put it in a place where I can look at it every day," she said.
