"I am searching for any information on how the Pistole, Yarborough, Allen, and Williams families may be tied in to my McGregor line in Marengo and then Sumter County, AL. I notice in my research that these families basically stuck together through the years 1800 to 1850. I somehow feel that they may have been related (cousins, etc.). If you research any of these families, I would love to hear if you have found any indicators in your cross-referencing."

Notes for REUBEN WILLIAMS:|
Records show that Reuben Williams and some other family members sold their land and possessions on Richardson Creek (about the year 1830) and probably moved to Mississippi, Georgia, or some other western state. The folks in North Carolina lost track of the families of Hosea (Reuben Henry) James, William Bennett, and Reuben and Newbern Williams. --- 1930 Williams Family genealogy by R.C. Griffin.
Recently I've found information in deeds, etc. which point to the possibility that Edward Williams, Joshua Williams, and Martha "Mattie" Williams Bennett and her husband William Bennett all moved to the area of Stewart Co., TN.
Also, it appears that Newborn/Newburn Williams and his sister, Rebecca "Reba" Williams James and her husband, Hosea James all moved to Weakley Co., TN.
