My name is Leon Earl. I am the son of Ludie May Williams who married James Herbert Earl and resided in Crowville (Franklin Parish) LA for 50+ years. Ludie's father was Zachariah who died when I was six years old. There were six children by James and Ludie: Peggy Ann (Sikes)59 ... James Terry 57 ... Jarald Dale (deceased 1944-1967) ... Ronald Lynn 52 ... Leon Marlus 49 ... and Candy Cherri(Gough)43.
I reside in Lafayette LA and am married to Rita Ellen Tabordon with three children: Ashlee Miriam 23 ... Blythe Ellen 17 ... and Jarald Tabordon Earl 15.
I have no additional info on Zachariah or Eva's parents, however my mother (d. 1995) collaborated with one of my second cousins on the Williams side who has supposedly done a great deal on work on our genealogy. The cousin's name is Charlotte White, grandaughter of Bethel Williams. Charlotte resides in Winnsboro (Franklin Parish) LA. I think her husband's name is John Robert White (his family owns White's Auto Dealership in Winnsboro.
I hope this assists you in your genealogy search. I have only recently become interested in tracing the Williams/Earl tree. Any details you could provide me would be greatly appreciated. My telephone is 337-232-6526.
