Have you considered that although John B Williams [11/37 GA] had plenty of time to move to TX for the 1850 census??

You wrote - "The father was born in Edgefield district South Carolina, in 1845....." So, how can John B. Williams be born in 1837 GA???

Try -
Requesting Civil War – Army records

All census records prior to the 1850 census only listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]
