Hi Barbara - I looked at your geocities info on William Williams. I can fill
in a blank or two for you. But I also have some conflicting info. Regarding
John Williams, son of William Williams & Lucy Terry: Your notes have John
married Elizabeth "Betsy" Williams, daughter of Joseph Williams and Catherine
Edwards, 16 Jul 1792 at Pittsylvania County, Virginia. I saw a marriage bond
for John Williams & Elizabeth Williams 7-16-1792 which lists "R. Williams" as
the father. It's not clear which one he was the father of but either way,
that varies from what you have. Where did you find that Elizabeth was the
dau. of Joseph & Catherine Williams? I would love to sort this out as I've
been hoping to get a lead on John. Also, there is a marriage record for
another John Williams who married a Betsey Gray 12-15-1798 in Pittsylvania
Cty. I wonder who that John was?
Below are more of my notes - don't know if they are of any help or not. But
if anybody out there has info on this John Williams, son of William & Lucy
Terry Williams, I would love to hear from you too. Thanks - Jane
