According to an entry made in a family Bible (not sure of the accuracy because the information is from a reprodcution, don't know who made it or the date the Bible was published), Abraham E. Williams II married Martha I. Padgett on 25 March 1875.

Question 12: Although some show the name as Morton or Milton, his actual name was Molton Rutledge Williams. (His middle name was not English as shown in your question.) He was born on 28 Dec. 1811 and married Rebecca Black on 16 March 1837. We are not sure when Molton died, generally it is believed he passed away in 1885. Some believe he was buried in an unmarked grave in the Jospeh Koger Risher Cemetery near Williams, SC. Molton had five children that passed away in the 1840's, we don't know where they are buried either. Somewhere in upper Colleton County is a lost Williams burial ground, I try to find every so often.

Question # 13 Rebecca Black was born 7 November 1819 and she passed away on 31 August 1885. Her grave is in the Joseph Koger Risher Cemetery near Williams, SC. Rebecca had no middle name. Her parents were Robert Black II and Nancy Rice. By blood relationship, Rebecca is one of my great great aunts - I am related to Molton by blood too.

My understanding is that at least two sons of Molton and Rebecca married daughters of Adaline Spell nee Risher and as was pointed out earlier Adaline is a Koger descendant. Also. the daughter of another son married Frank George Williams, a Koger descendant.

Question # 14, the only Charles Williams that I can think of was a son of Joseph R. Williams and Nancy Padgett. Charles was born and died in Colleton County, SC probably near Williams. Charles E. Williams was born 6 January 1879
and passed away on 9 Oct 1887.

Question #15, I am guessing you are asking about Charles' brother Henry. Born on 4 Nov 1891, Henry I. Williams passed way on 8 June 1905. Henry's father Joseph R. Williams had been living in Flordia for about 25 years when he passed away in 1921 so Henry probably died in Florida. He was buried in the Jospeh Koger Risher Cemetery.
