John H.(Hiram) WILLIAMS is listed on the 1850 Titus Co., TX Slave Index. He moved to TX from DeSoto Parish, LA about 1849. His son, John Samuel WILLIAMS married Mary Aldine FLETCHER 27-Dec-1849 in DeSoto Parish, LA. It is speculated that John H. moved to TX following the marriage of his sone, John S.
The succession papers on John H. are dated in 1854 and were filed in DeSoto Parish. The original is on file in Shreveport, LA
Mahala WILLIAMS, widow of John H. is also on the 1860 Titus Co., TX Federal Census and is shown to be living near by her son Robert T. & Judith M. (FLETCHER) WILLIAMS. Robert T. was married 7-March-1852 in DeSoto Parish, LA. He was probably born in Williamson Co., TN between 1822 - 1838. Robert T.'s parents married in the early 1820's in Williamson Co., TN and migrated to Yazoo Co., MS in the 1830's and then migrated again in the 1840's to DeSoto Parish, LA.
John H. & Mahala (SINGLETARY) WILLIAMS had at least 8 children :
1. John Samuel - m. Mary Aldine FLETCHER
2. Robert T. - m. Judity M. FLETCHER
3. George N.
4. Daniel H.
6. Mary A.
7. Mary P.

I'm seeking any information on John H. & Mahala WILLIAMS and their descendants. Recent information seems to indicate that John H. may have come from VA.
a great-great-grandson of John H. WILLIAMS
