Hey Pat,

I checked the Gainesville Sun obituary index at the main branch library in Gainesville, and I found nothing for Lewelling Williams or the Pendarvis's. It's my understanding the index covers all of the old papers printed in Gainesville. The library has The New Era newspaper from 8 Jul 1865 thru 23 Nov 1866, but are missing Oct 5, Oct 19, Oct 26, and March 24, 1866. They are also missing the Sep 16 and Dec 30th, 1865 papers. They have nothing for the 1870's. I wish I could have found something more helpful.
Good luck in your research,
