    Copies of the first few pages of Maxine Williams McNeill's book "The Williams Family". These pages detail the stories handed down through the generations regarding the Jeremiah Williams family. I can not attest to their accuracy but they are at the very least informative and instructive for others to follow behind with additional research. A great deal of gratitude to Maxine Williams McNeill and the fellow Williams family researchers who put this book together.
