      It has long been believed that George Williams [d. 1797 Moore County, NC] was the progenitor of many of the Williams families located in upper Moore County. George lived northwest of the Robbins crossroads on Flag Creek and left a will in 1797 listing sons James, Jeremiah, Thomas and William. We?ve been working to test a number of Williams? descendants to try and confirm this theory. To date, we have been able to test the following Williams men for 67 markers: [1] Terry Williams who descends from George > William Williams [1767-1842] > Thomas Greene Williams > William Wesley Williams [2] Mel Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > Matthew Williams > John Spanker Williams [3] Ben Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > John Williams > Edward A. Williams [4] Tim Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > Bryant Williams > Jerry Hubert Williams, Sr. [5] James Upshur Williams who descends from George > William Williams [1767-1842] > Joseph Williams > Upshur Furr Williams and [6] Marvin Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > John Williams > Noah Williams. Interesting enough all six of these men match each other but none are exact matches likely meaning mutations were more common within George?s descendants than typically found. They have all recently been upgraded to 111 markers and we are trying to recruit more samples from additional descendants to try and determine the exact meaning of the mutations. These descendants of George also match closely two samples from descendants of William Williams [1745-1813] and John Williams [b. 1770] both of Granville County, NC likely indicating a close connection between George and these Williams families. To date, we have been unable to make a connection between William and John of Granville although one clearly exists. More research is needed to connect them and to identify how George Williams fits into the picture.
