Dear Brenda and others,

The following information was on posts at Genforum and shows connections of

in this family.

I am seeking information on David WILLIAMS b. 1718, d. 1795. He married Mary
MATHIS. His father may have been William WILLIAMS, however I have no proof. I
welcome all help.


Don't know if the above LENA is part of the MYRICK family that married into
KIRKLAND that Liz MOORE and others are researching but she does have some
KIRKLAND posts on is one.......

Are you looking for the David Williams who was from Duplin County, NC and
later settled in Bulloch County, Ga?


Hi, again,

Interestingly enough, the above mentioned Jack WILLIAMS also has posts that
he has made regarding the FRITH - WILLIAMS families which I descend from in
my previously mentioned to you PEMBERTON - WILLIAMS family which married into

And he also has a GOFF connection to his WILLIAMS which I will show below.

Jack WILLIAMS' info is immediately below:

I have a book, "Bulloch Co. GA. Genealogical Source Material" by Alvaretta
Kenan Register that says (pg 438): " Frederick Williams, born 1751, N.C., son
of JAMES WILLIAMS and wife, MARY WALLACE. He died 1821 in Bulloch Co. GA. He
was a Pvt. in Ga. Militia (Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers in Georgia by
McCall, Vol. 1 pg 201)" This is the only proof I've found as to heritage of
Frederick who married Arribicah Goff. My fifth great grandparents!

Sally: Have you tried looking under Myrick in the Forum - I found the
following James Myrick married Nancy Flewell (time frame 1792 Va. - 1872 Ga.)
- their children were Frances Eliz md. Thomas Norris; Susan md. W. D.
Williams; and James W. Could your Myrix be Myrick - and someone's surname
became a descendant's middle name. I also am looking for a William Williams -
lived in Southwestern Virginia; married a Mahala Alice Sweet (my great
grandmother) - I still haven't found his middle name. I just now found out
what her full name was by getting a copy of my grandmother's Social Security
Application. The application shows the name of father and mother of the
applicant - in this case ggrandmother was shown as Mahala Alice Sweet BUT
ggrandfather was just shown as William Williams - but I did get something for
my $7.00.

Am very disgusted in trying all these years of research on Williams and
descendants-have decided it isn't worth an ulcer-so am not going to try
anymore- I can't be of help to any of you searchers-if I can't find one
little line even of William Williams, susposed to have been born around 1735
in that great big state of Va.
Of course I am certain all records pertaining to him just happend to be in
the Court House the year it caught fire and burned to the ground.I have his
and grand sons etc all the way to 1920-but just have a block from him back-I
don't know where to look- I am thinking seriously of changing my maiden name
to something else and forget I ever heard the name William Myrix(yet)
Williams. that middle name should tell something-can't find anyone one by
that surname either. Sorry to sound so disgusted-but I am, Sally

would appreciate any thing you have to offer- I am not so sure what my dad
told me abt this Roger of RI-I may descend from the nephew Roger of Va. My
earliest Williams I have been able to prove was William Myrix(Miricks-Minix-
all kinds of ways to spell it I have found. Willam Myrix Williams to my
knowledge was b ca 1734 Va. but I am not certain of the latter 2.I also found
that this Wm's grandson were cousins-especially Levi and Wesley Williams-
have you any
