Jesse: Have you found any relationship between your Williams name and that of Roger Williams, the Quaker founder of Providence, RI? My g-g-grandmother was a Williams. The Roger Williams Family Association (?) has verified that my grandmother was a direct descendant of Roger Williams. If you are new to genealogy, you will find MANY branches from MANY family trees. Keep your records organized into books, as I do, would be a suggestion. Good Luck!
