Resuming My Search for the Connections in the Williams Family
I had to take a short break from my search, because my trail took a sudden left turn. My last findings threw everything I thought I knew into a tailspin. So I do not know if my John M. Williams is likely to be a direct descendant of Philip Williams and Ann Vest. I think he is a descendant of Keziah Elizabeth Brooks, possibly. There are many children involved and lots of Williamses. His father Edgar P Williams was born in Virginia about 1810. I would love to find more info about the Williams family of Virginia and where this Edgar P came from. Does anyone have info about Keziah Eliabeth Brooks's children? There are more in this family than Philip. For your convenience, I will let you know what I have seen: the 1880 census, as well as the one from 1860. There is also a death certificate for a daughter, married name McClain. Other than these, I have nothing on any of the half a dozen kids or them. No birth certificates, death certificates, marriage licenses, or anything else to give clues or additional info.
