I am searching for Bennett Williams family members who lived in NC in the 1780 North Carolina Census and had sons named Samuel and Bennett, Jr. The sons married Sarah Roberts and Maria Peed in Person Co., NC.
Bennett may have remarried a Francis after the death of Maria and gone to Ala. I have information that my Samuel's SONS Bennett and Jesse moved from Robertson Co., TN to Montgomery Co., ALA where Jesse died.
Died in Montgomery Co. , Ala. leaving no widow nor children. Bennett Williams, his brother, petitioned the court in Alabama to allow him to sell the land and slaves. The heirs he petitioned on behalf of were;
Mother: Sarah Williams in Robertson Co. TN.
Brothers and Sisters:
David Williams Robt. Co., TN.
Lydia Williams Robt. Co. ,TN.
Parthenia Williams Robt. Co,. TN.
Mary Williams Robt. Co. TN.
John Jackson and wife Elizabeth Jackson formerly Elizabeth Williams of Robt. Co., TN.
Solomon Williams of Green Co., Mo.
Bennett Williams of Montgomery Co., Alabama
Filed 1858

Bennett Williams age 31 Grocer born in N.C.

I have been told that the Williams Family came from Va. but I know nothing of Bennett, Sr.'s family nor his wife's name.
I have information on Samuel as he is my line.
If you know of any books with this family line available, please let me know as well as information on my Alabama family.
Thank you,
Nancy in TN
