G-g-g-grandfather James M. Williams (1818-1893) and his third wife, Frances Jane Ridgeway (1826-1905) lived nr Grand Cane and are buried at Hazelwood Cemetery. They had four children who lived to maturity: Samuel T. Williams (1850-1926), Dora I. Williams (bn c. 1858); Nancy Williams (bn c.1860); and Ida J. Williams (bn c.1864, age 16 in 1880). I would like to know who and when these children married.

Curtis Williams (1854-1878) was another son of James M. Williams and his third wife. Curtis married Martha E. DuBose (bn c. 1857- died ??) on 23 July 1874 and had twin sons. I would like to know if his widow married a second time and, if so, her spouse's name. When did she die? Any help will be appreciated.
