This was handed down by the family of Richard Street, tax assessor. during the time period. It is a very large file and may take additional time to load. Courtesy of James V.

      Jerry Williams, descendant of Jeremiah Williams [1784-1864] > Elias Terrel Williams [1830-1894] and Lee Williams, a descendant of Jeremiah > Stephen D. Williams [b.1823] match each other and much to our surprise, Allen Williams, a descendant of Thomas Williams [1786-1859] was a very close match to both of the samples. Thomas Williams had long been believed to be a son of George Williams but the Y-DNA results have called this into question. It is possible that Thomas Williams was a brother to Jeremiah and not a son to George. More research is needed to nail down this line and connection. As far as other Williams connections, Jerry and Allen's Y-DNA are close matches to a number of Williams men believed to have descended from Robert Williams [d.1772 Bute County, NC (current Warren County)]. Based on the closeness of the match, it is possible that Jeremiah and Thomas were grandchildren or great-grandchildren of Robert or a brother or cousin of Robert's.
