So glad I ran across this thread...
I was following your postings after sending you a message earlier today.
Wilbur's post from 5 Aug 2001 may give me the tie I was looking for.
The picture of James R.M.'s son Rufus looks amazingly like my GGrandfather John Anderson Williamson.
I can match DNA (66 out of 67 I think it is) to the line of Robert McAlpine Williamson, who was married to Mary J Edwards.
If these Williamson's and Edwards you are all talking about are closely tied, then I'll be digging deeper into this bit. It may help me finally poke a small hole in an otherwise large brick wall!
