Stella;

Your surname list in your inquiry indicated a family WILLIAMS in Bibb Cnty., AL.

My Great Grandfather, JAMES O. CHAPMAN, married MARY JANE WILLIAMS 28 Mar. 1847 in Bibb Cnty. Mary Jane b. Mar. 1, 1830, Bibb Cnty, one source indicates she was the daughter of WILLIAM WILLIAMS who reportedly was a long time resident of Bibb Cnty. and a well known stockman. I have, However, not been able to place Mary Jane with a Williams Family in Bibb Cnty.

Any information greatly appreciated.

I really don't have any information on the Watts/Waits family. I am having a tough time myself, b/c I don't have any good leds at all with this family. Well, got to run for now.

Are you saying that this Joseph and Addellia Waits had 11 children by the time he was 19? Please check the dates. My Ggrandfather, Oscar Schley Waits, was born 1882. Do you have anyone in your family line by that name? I don't know if Oscar had brothers or sisters. I haven't found his parents names yet. I do have his death certificate listed as #2649, vol. 6, roll 6 but I have not seen it. Also, were your Waits Native natural Americans? I am told Oscar Waits has Native American Indian blood.

What a terrible mistake I made. I'm sorry, I was going by my Family Group form and the marriage date is right above the death date so I don't have a death date only birth 1-6-1857 and marriage 2-17-1876. I do not have an Oscar at all, not meaning that there wasn't one. Thanks for helping me correct a stupid mistake.
