    Notes 
    • There has been much confusion regarding Jeremiah and another Jeremiah Williams (b. 1775). There has even been a question as to whether they were the same individual. It is my belief that there were in fact two men and that they were probably closely related. This is based in the fact that both men appear in the 1830 Census in Moore County, NC and their individual land records show ownership in different locations. This Jeremiah owned a great deal of land north of the town of Robbins, NC located on Bear Creek and Deep River. The other Jeremiah mentioned primarily owned land south of the town of Robbins, NC located between Flag Creek and Buffalo Creek. DNA testing from descendants of each of these Jeremiah do not match each other indicating that they were not closely related.

      Jerry Williams, a descendant of Jeremiah Williams [1784-1864] and Lee Williams, a descendant of Stephen D. Williams [b.1823] match each other very closely likely indicating that Stephen D. Williams was the son of Jeremiah b 1784. Jerry's Y-DNA is an exact match with the descendants of Isham Williams [1790 GA - 1860 KY]. Given the exact match between these samples the likelihood of a common male ancestor within very recent times is very high. In fact, it is 90% likely that the common male ancestor is within 4 generations and 99% with 8 generations. Jeremiah is four generations removed from Jerry. It is possible that Isham Williams and Jeremiah Williams likely had the same grandfather or great grandfather [essentially 6-7 generations ago]. Given that Isham was believed to be born in 1790 in GA and Jeremiah was born around 1784 in NC it seems unlikely that they were brothers.
