I am interested in anything you can tell me about Lemuel WIlliams. I am also pursuing a line of WIlliams in Geneseo and Livonia twps, Ontario/Livingston county.

I did notice in the Washington Co land records that John, Solomon, and Lemuel Williams all had sons named after themselves. I noticed that there is also a Solomon WIlliams in Portage twp, Livingston CO.

Livingston County land records show a John WIlliams, formerly of Granville twp, Washington CO, buying
land in Geneseo twp, Livingston CO in 1819. There is a John WIlliams will in the Livingston County probate records
that lists his children (John, David, Polly Hatch, Meriba Parker, and Nancy Temple). John WIlliams' dates are ca. 1756 to 1830, from Livingston CO cemetery data. John WIlliams' wife was Lydia, ca. 1760- 1833.

I have been assuming that the John WIlliams in the Granville census 1790-1810 was this John WIlliams who moved to Geneseo twp in 1819. The John WIlliams shown in Granville 1820+ is of an age to be his son. I assume that he remained in Granville when his father moved to Geneseo.

There is also a Lemuel WIlliams, ca. 1776-1861 and wife Sarah ca. 1788-1855 in the Livingston CO cemetery records, buried in the same cemetery as John WIlliams. The 1850 census states that Lemuel Williams was from Connecticut.
This Lemuel Williams has a 15 year old female in his household in the 1830 census. This is a potential candidate to be my ancestor Marilla WIlliams.
