Not sure if this is my Bennie and Ollie or not, but it is a possibility. I'll have to locate them on the 1910 census and see if they had another child (Benny or Bennie Wallace Williams) in 1902. I have found out the following on the family which might be helpful to any one else researching a Benny/Bennie Williams in GA.
Benny B. Williams b. June 1849 d. 1910. Probate record 1910 #1907536 307/37 Oglethorpe Co, GA.
Wife: Francina Olelia (Unknown) Williams b. Nov 1855. Listed as Olelia on the 1900 Census. Listed As Francina O. on the 1920, Clark Co., Athens Twp., GA. and 1930, Oglethorpe, Beaverdam Tsp.,GA. Census. She was living with son Dutch in both 1920 and 1930.
Son, Linton Williams b. Jan 1879, per obituaries from the Oglethorpe Echo, was found dead at home in Hull, Madison County in February, 1905, son of Mr. B.B. Williams of Oglethorpe County; Henry Wood and Pattie Watkins charged with his murder.
Not sure if this obituary is on son Joseph B b. May 1876, married to Pink. Listed March 1, 1907, is as follows: Mr. Jos Williams-died on Saturday, February 24, in Atlanta; of Eatonton.
Your imput is most appreciated and it does give me a starting point in finding the parents of my Bennie Wallace Williams b. Jan. 1, 1902.
Many thanks,
