I have been searching for ancestors of James B. Williams for the past eleven years. With the data that I am presenting, I hope someone will help me find his parents and/or ancestors or siblings. He was first located on the 1850 Census for Sabine Parish, Louisiana 1850, which says as follows. James B. Williams b 1813-14; age 36; male; white; farmer; born in Mississippi. Married 1846 in Mississippi to Margaret (Marguerite)Jacobs b 1828; age 22; female; white (housewife) born in Tennessee. Walsh Monroe Williams b 1848; age 2; male; white; born in Tennessee. Ben Burelson Williams b I 850; age 2 months; male; white; born in Tennessee. Also on the census sheet is James Latham age 7; born in Tennessee. Lewis Williams age 35; described as a laborer also born in Tennessee. Also W. S. Williams age 34; born Mississippi; a farmer. Also Luke Williams age 45; born in Mississippi; a farmer. We do not know if these are brothers of James B. Williams. He has two sisters living in Bell County, Texas. They are Emma W. Harrison and Rebecca W Lynch. All efforts to locate any descendants of the sisters have failed. James B. Williams and spouse Margaret Jacobs Williams are buried in the Liberty Cemetery (near Milano) Milam County, Tx. Other Children are (all born in Milam Co., TX) Marvin Luke Williams b 7/4/1853.d 12/26/1920; Silas Cooper Williams (My Grandfather) b 7/4/1855 d 6/26/1922; Louisa Jennifer "Jennie" Williams b 3/1/1857 d 01/01/1930, Married Union Justice Peacock 1879; Charles Allen Williams-Smith b 1/30/1861 d 8129/1925; Isabella Williams b 1863 d 1928, married Virgil A Herron 1863; Elias Jefferson Williams b 9/18/1 864 d 2/8/I933 (some records show birth to be in Waco-Waco part of Milam County at the time he was born); Rufus Frank Williams- Jones b 1869 d 1891; Margaret Williams b 1860 d 1891 married Franklin E. Powell 1869;Mildy Susan Williams b;9/22/I869 d 6/14/1944 married James Lee Bowers 1889.. I have recorded 1,137 descendants for this family and am willing to share my information. If you can help, please send email. Thanks for visiting
