Hello, I have been searching since Aug. of 1998 for my Williams family. This week, I have a tip leading me to Warren County where Francis Williams died (1742-1793) . He was married to unknown but had a son Bennett Williams who as bornb. abt. 1770. This could very well be the Bennett who is my ancester in Person Co., NC where he had sons named Bennett Jr,. Samuel (my line) Polly, and Jane. Possibly Sally, Chelsey, Elijah were either children or relatives living near and interacting with them.
I have no dates for births of Bennett's children except 1792 for his son Bennett. This could very easily let the Warren County and Bute Co. Williams be my ancestors. I am hoping that some kind soul will finally let my ancestors in TN. rest in peace and me be a happy Family Historian.
My Samuel married Sarah Roberts in Person Co, in 1803. Bennett married Maria Peed in Person Co. in 1816.
Hopefully someone can get my family straightened out for me. I went to the NC archives and sat and cried. I was so disappointed that I found nothing that I had not been sent by a kind man in Roxoboro already.
I look forward to hearing from anyone with any connections.
