Seeking information on the the MILLS, VERNON, and WILLIAMS living in Bruswick CO., NC in the early 1800s. Specifically, the following names:
William, Edward, and James MILLs
Ephriam and William VERNON
William, James, Henry James, and Margaret WILLIAMS

Was William MILLS or Edward MILLS the father of Margaret WILLIAMS? What was the relationship between the MILLS-VERNON-WILLIAMS families?

The following land records from Brunswick Co., NC suggest that Edward or James MILLS is the father of Margaret WILLIAMS and that Ephriam and William VERNON might also be related. No other records have been found.
