Emeline Mariah WILLIAMS was b. abt. 1843 in DeSoto Parish, LA. She is the last child and the 9th in birth order of John Hiram & Mahala (Singletary) WILLIAMS. Her mom & dad married in Williamson Co., TN and first moved to Yazoo Co., MS in the 1830's and then on to N.W. Louisiana in the early 1840's. Her dad was born in VA but no info is yet found on the state of birth of her mom. Her dad's Succession Papers are on file in Shreveport, LA at the Noel Memorial Library on the Campus of LSU-Shreveport as is other such records for DeSoto Parish and other N.W. LA Parishes. These records are through 1900.

Who did Emeline marry ? What was her husband's background, etc. Did they stay in DeSoto Parish, or move elsewhere ? Did they have any children, and if so what was their names, etc.

Thanks, Bill Swearingen - Bellville, TX
