Thanks for trying to help me. This was a shot in the dark. My grandfather, William L. Williams, was on the 1880 Census in Union Parish as a "boarder" with a Mabry family. He may be related to them. In 1888 he was married and the marriage license gave his address as "Ward's Mill, Claiborne Pr". I have combed the area for any Williams who could be his dad but thought that he may have been living with some of his mother's relatives. I have no maiden name for her as yet. I have seen in other states old maps showing the Ward districts and had hoped that such a map for Claiborne may exist showing the district for Ward's Mill.
It was worth a try and I really appreciate your desire to help me.
