I am searching for any information about James W. Williams who married Nancy Spradley on Dec. 15, 1878 in Hamilton County, FL. According to the 1880 US Fed Census of Hamilton County, FL, James was born in GA about 1860. His wife Nancy was born about 1859-1860 in GA. Their first child was George F. Williams born Oct/Nov. 1879 in Hamilton Co. FL. According to family lore there are 3 more children: Lewis F. born 1882 who married Mary Ellen O'Quinn; Sarah I. born 1885 who married Alexander (Alex) Nettles; and Walter T. born 1887 who married Ardelia (Delia) Teston. I can NOT find James W. Williams in any other census, no death records, burial, etc. Family lore says he died in some kind of shooting indicent in Columbia County, FL (no dates) but I guesstimate between 1887 when his last child was born and 1890; because his wife Nancy remarried in 1891 to James Liles. I can not put all of these children together in one census with their mother or any other relative. I can account for Lewis and Sarah in 1900, but I can not account for George or Walter. In looking at the 1900 US Federal Census for Camden County, GA, it states that Nancy (Spradley Williams) Liles bore 6 children total (I think 4 by the first marriage and 2 by the second as I have the names of the 2 children from the second marriage) but only 5 were living in the 1900 census, which leads me to believe that perhaps the child George died prior to 1900.
Is anyone familair with this family or does anyone have any information to share about this family.
I am also trying to find the parents/siblings of James W. Williams, but do you realize how many James W. Williams in GA and FL there were back then...lol.
