I also meant to say that I didn't mean that ALL of the Williams were the same family from both counties. But it seems that quite a few of them had connections to both counties.

As a note, there is a will for WILLIAM WILLIAMS, written April 9, 1835 and probated May Court 1838,(Will Book 37/20)
in Warren County that mentions his lands in Warren county,(including all my land on Little Shocco Creek containing 1384 acres, also 700 acres on the north side of Great Shocco adj. to William K. Kearney) Franklin County (on Sandy Creek and Shocco Creek), Halifax County (on the east side of Mill Swamp, adj. to the Beaverdam Branch purchased from Thomas Kearney, and all my lands in Halifax County on the east side of Elk Marsh Swamp containing 2000 acres), and 617 acres Chickasaw in Tennessee, to my Grandson Thomas C. Jones, the title presently in the name of Calvin Jones. This will is long and drawn out and contains may children and grandchildren that were named Williams, Alston, Jones, Perry, and Burton, among others. This William Williams was the grandfather of the Robert Edgar Williams I mentioned in my first message to you, who was married to a Kearney. It might be worth your while to take a look at that and other wills for the area.
