Looking for information on Ezekiel S and Robert S. Williams from Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas

I am trying to locate information on my great-grandfather, my grandfather and/or any other ancestors/relatives. My great-grandfather's name was Ezekiel S. Williams. According to the Thirteenth Census of the United States: 1910 Population, he is listed as being 82 (???) years of age (it is very difficult to read). No wife is listed in this census, looks like marital status is W (???) again, very diffcult to read. He is listed as being born in Alabama, with his father born in South Carolina and his mother born in Georgia. I do not know his parents names.

My grandfather's name was Robert S. "Bob" Williams.
His age is listed as 28 years and marital status as ?single? in the 1910 census. He was born in Alabama.
He had at least three brothers and one sister, all born in Alabama.

Alla, (??) Nickname ?Aler? 24 years old , single, in 1910 census

Walter, 22 years old , single, in 1910 census

Dosha (sister) 20 years old, single, in 1910 census

Albert 18 years old , single, in 1910 census

I was told "Dosha" married a Mr. Eaton/Deaton who lived in Guntown, MS. I have not been able to confirm this.

I know my grandfather?s family lived West of Guntown, MS, in a small community named Blair. They operated a cotton gin there and Walter had part of the fingers of one hand cut off during an accident. They have lived in Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas and possibly (?) Texas and Louisiana.

I have a copy of a marriage certificate (book 10, page number 275) where my grandfather, R.S. Williams, married my grandmother, Ethel Cook on November 18,1906 in Tupelo, Lee county, Mississippi.
They had two sons, William Davis "Bill" Williams, (aka Bill Booker) born August 28,1907, and died April, 1980. My dad, James Curtis (nicknames "J.C." and "Curt") Williams, (aka Curt Booker) born September 16, 1909, and died April 1986.

My grandparents separated before my dad was born and he never saw his dad. My grandmother subsequently married a Mr. Booker who reared the boys until his death, so they were also known as Booker.
I would appreciate any information anyone might have about this Williams family.
