Descendants of Thomas Barnes Williams

Generation No. 3


      17. Lucinda Ann3 Williams (James Henry2, Thomas Barnes1) was born July 1843 in Carroll Co. Ga. (Source: 1900 Census of Winston Co. Al. & her death certificate), and died June 02, 1920 in Houston, Alabama (Source: her death certificate.). She married William J. Davidson December 08, 1859 in Carroll Co. Ga., son of Washington Davidson and Myra ???. He was born Bet. 1836 - 1837 in Georgia, and died Unknown in unknown.

Notes for Lucinda Ann Williams:
Lucinda's story has some interesting points to of note to the family.

For one thing, she married a Davidson. Her mother's maiden name was Davidson and so there's a very good chance that the man that she married was a cousin, perhaps even a first cousin!!

Lucinda's last child was born about 1879 and her husband left her sometime around 1880. By 1883 she was getting all of theie land transferred to just her name. According to Earl Williams and stories pass down to him, the Davidson family soon became adept at 'making' everything they needed. They were avid hunters, quite skilled at living off of the land. They never foregave their father for leaving them.

Evidently sometime between 1902-1910, Lucinda's son Thomas and at least one other brother moved their families to Pontotoc, Mississippi. Lucinda's oldest son 'Wash' however (James Washington Davidson named for his grandfathers James Williams and Washington Davidson] stayed with his mother. He was the testator to his mother's death in 1920. After his mother died, Wash got more and more withdrawn, becoming a hermit, so the story goes. He told children gruesome tales that frightened them. His brother Tom came back to visit him and found him living in squallor. Evidently he was living as a recluse as well, and when his brothers saw him they literally gave him a bath. They said to him, "You took care of us when we were young and now we will take care of you." His aunt Eliza Wooley Williams commented that he should feel as fresh as a new born chick, but Wash rejoined "I don't know what a new born chick feels like."
He claimed that at least once he 'saw' there mother and that the site startled him so that he stumbled and fell and when he stood up that she was gone!

Cause of Death: Asthma & "dropsy"

Notes for William J. Davidson:

William J. is VERY PROBABLY the son of Washington and Myra Davidson, found with numerous children in the 1850 Census of Carroll Co., living only a dozen households away from Lucinda's parents, James H. and Sarah. (Sarah's maiden name was probably Davidson. Although Washington wasn't old enough to be her father, the 'coincidence" is interesting.) Washington, Myra, and all of their children are reputed to have been born in GA. Another Davidson family of early settlers in GA?

The Carroll Co. records show William and Lucinda marrying in Carroll Co. in Dec. of 1859 or 1860, but they also show up as husband and wife, living next door to James H. in the 1860 Census of Winston Co.

The earliest land record for William J. was filed on 9/15/1859 in Winston Co., the same day as the first recorded filing of James H. and the next consecutive filing cert. number. Did James H. somehow file for the Davidson's (his daughter and son-in-law) or were the Carroll Co. marriage records so far behind that the marriage wasn't recorded until the couple had already left the state? We may never know.

William J. Davidson was of the age to have fought in the Civil War. There is a William Davidson who was a Pvt. with Co. B,56th AL. Mtd. Inf. who served from Winston Co. and so far this is the only William Davidson found in this Co. at that time. However, a little more proof will be needed to make the connection conclusive.

William J. is absent in the 1880 Census. Either by 1880 or shortly thereafter he left the family. His sons never forgot and never forgave him. (per Earl Williams, whose father Charlie, was William J.s nephew. The oldest son of this union never married and lived with Momma till she died. Many of the children moved to Mississippi. Research on this line (as all of them really) is in progress.

      18. Hannah Elisabeth3 Williams (James Henry2, Thomas Barnes1) was born March 1845 in Carroll Co. Ga. (Source: Fraanklin Co.Al., 1900 Census E.D, 17, Sheet 11), and died Aft. 1900 in unknown (Source: 1900 Census of Franklin Co., Alabama.). She married James Wood McCullars (Source: Middle name from Bill Gaines descendant of Permelia and John and Gaines/McCullar family geneaolgist.) Abt. 1861 in unknown (Source: 1870 and 1880 Winston Co. Census, based on ages of children.), son of Andrew McCullar and Mealey ???. He was born Abt. 1836 in Troupe Co., Ga. (Source: Trails to Follow by Wayne E Wakefield.), and died Bef. 1900 in unknown (Source: 1900 Census of Franklin Co., Alabama shows Hannah as a widow.).

Notes for Hannah Elisabeth Williams:
I believe Hannah is in Franklin Co., Al. by 1900 as a widow but in her own household on some land. This is research uncovered in July of 1997 and is still very much in progress. The family staory of the McCullars is that this family was all killed off by disease. This has been proven false, but perhaps many WERE killed. Hard to say.
