[Informant Oliver Williams, probably a son]

Some of the family names are rather common, but you probably have dates of birth for most and that can help narrow the search on the Dth Idx.

I tried entering father of deceased as Eldred Williams and found a couple of matches, but I'm not sure it's the same man. You might play around with these, see if you can track down informants until you get to someone still living.

Or, you might try RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) site -- http://www.raogk.org/faq-requesters.htm -- Several volunteers listed for Johnson Co, TX. One named Joyce says she will look up obits. Maybe survivors are listed in Eldred's obit. Good way to learn names of married females in the family, too.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
