I'm searching for descendants or any information on the family of John A. Williams. John was born 3 June 1813 in Buncombe County, NC, and died 4 Aug 1896. He is buried at Clear Creek Baptist Church in Gilmer Co, GA. John married Jane A. Burlison, daughter of Edward Burlison and Matilda McKissick, about 1837/38. Jane died 31 May 1898 and is thought to be buried at Pleasant Gap Church in an unmarked grave.

John and Jane had the following children:
(1)John Fonzo Williams was born Nov 1839 in Buncombe Co, NC and died 16 Aug 1933 in Gilmer Co, GA. He married Mary Jane Teem (or Teems). John and Mary Jane are buried at Clear Creek Baptist Church in Gilmer Co.
(2)Mary Matilda Williams was born about 1840 in Buncombe Co, NC. She married George W. Osborn, son of John W. Osborn and Mary Holt.
(3)Rebecca C. Williams was born 6 Sept 1842 in Buncombe Co, NC and died 13 Nov 1874 in Gilmer Co. She married James Blythe Osborn, son of John W. Osborn and Mary Holt.
(4)William W. Williams, born 25 March 1845 in Macon Co, NC and died 1916 in Jessup, Wayne Co GA. He married Salina Palestine Osborn, daughter of John W. Osborn and Mary Holt. Salina was born 14 Dec 1855 in Gilmer Co and died 1 Sept 1908 in Jessup, Wayne Co, GA.
(5)Margaret Williams was born about 1848 in Macon Co, NC
(6)Lydia L. Williams was born about 1850 in Macon Co, NC
(7)Jesse Jackson Williams was born about 1853 in NC
(8)Andrew C. Williams was born about 1855 in NC
(9)Isaac Williams was born about 1858 in GA
(10)Martha Williams was born about 1862 in GA
(11)Joseph Bartley Williams was born about 1863 in GA

What happened to the last seven children? Did they married and raise families in Gilmer County? Any information will be appreciated.
