Thanks for the post.My focus is the Williams connection and this is not my direct line, just trying to fit the family members together.I am interested in trying to figure out the ancestors for Malinda Williams as this could be the key to extending our Williams line back further.Unfortunately they have been VERY elusive.
I have posted extensively on the Williams Family Forum.
If you come across anything for Malinda or any of these early Texas Williams families, please let me know.
The general migration pattern for this Williams line
>Dorchester Co., MD 1757
>Guilford Co., NC 1781; Rockingham Co., NC
>Logan County, KY
>Sumner Co, TN 1804
>Lincoln Co., MO 1821; Pike Co., MO
->> my line continued ->>
>Gonzales, TX [DeWitt Colony] 1830.
Not all of this line went to TX but those that did were there by abt 1830.
"John Allen Scism (1826-1880) m1:Sarah Treadwell; m2:Melinda Williams"
This is not a direct line but I am curious about the parents of Melinda/Malinda (Lavinia?) Williams. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
This might be a difficult line to follow as it appears John A. Scism's decendants were all daughter's.

Looking for information about Malinda "Williams" who married 20 Sept 1878, Goliad Co., Texas to John Allen Scism. John and Malinda had two daughters, Virginia Amanda and Ida.
After John's death, Malinda married Jefferson K. New
05 Sept 1882. She died 12 May 1891(Texas).
Malinda and J. K. New had at least four children; Sydney, Annis, Laura and Beatrice.
Malinda may have had a sister by the name of Mary Elizabeth
thought to have married David Barber?? She might
also be related to a Emily Kate Williams???
Does anyone have this Malinda in their family??? Is she
indeed a Williams?? Who are her parents?? Siblings??
Any help would be appreciated!
