Seeking information of Benjamin WILLIAMS and Ann SIMPSON of early Brunswick Co., NC. Who were their parents? and who were their children?

In my research, I have found two Benjamin WILLIAMSes in the
Brunswick Co, NC very early.
1. One Benjamin was the son of John Pugh WILLIAMS S/O William WILLIAMS of Wales. This Benjamin WILLIAMS md. Elizabeth JONES. 31 Aug. 1762. He was GOV. of NC.
(2) The other Benjamin WILLIAMS md. Ann SIMPSON and he is the one I am researching in hopes of making a connection with James WILLIAMS mentioned in the deed below.

In the Warranty Deeds of Brunswick Co., NC 1794 I found the following record at the end of a warranty deed for John Anderson:
458 (603) John ANDERSON 15 Apr 1794......."beginning of warrant to Benjamin WILLIAMS for 15 ac (no more details) 150 ac. On both sides of Moore's Creek survey 13 June 1794 by A. Baker (county surveyor);Isamine/IJames Williams and Simson WILLIAMS chain carriers; grant #287, issued 6 Dec. 1794."

Benjamin WILLIAMS b. 30 Nov 1754; d. 23 Oct 1817 in Brunswick Co., NC md. Ann SIMPSON; They had a son, Simpson WILLIAMS b. 31 Oct 1779 in Brunswick County, NC
md. Catherine M. DUVAL d. 5 Feb. 1843 in Charleston, S.C.

Who are the parents of this Benjamin WILLIAMS?
Sherman at the RootsWeb WorldConnect Project (RW/WCP) <> in March 2002 listed Lewis WILLIAMS and Mary BLAIR as the parents of Benjamin WILLIAMS who md. Ann SIMPSON.

Other siblings: Roy Birch <> in Feb 2005 listed in the RW/WCP, a Mary WILLIAMS b. 4 Oct 1776 in Smithville, NC as a chld of Benjamin WILLIAMS and Ann SIMPSON. The Benjamin WILLIAMS that was GOV.of NC lived in Smithville. I do not know if Benjamin WILLIAMS who md. Ann SIMPSON lived there.
