|Pieces of my ancestry puzzle are finally starting to come togetherafter 30 years. Most of the problems have come from spelling inaccuracies. My great grandfather, Liberty Williams, has been listed with four different middle initials in just as many records. My great grandfather on my mother's side has his name misspelled in more than four ways.This is mentioned to aid others who are at a "dead end".|
The main family names that I am researching are WILLIAMS, PAUL, MAYER, BOND, MCFADDEN, BURNHAM, CAMPBELL, COWART, and STEWART. Most have hit big snags along the way, but the fun (and frustration) is in the hunt! My WILLIAMS line begins in Kentucky and travels to Missouri, Iowa, and Indian Territory (later, Oklahoma). The other lines hit those states but also are found in Illinois, Tennessee, and Texas.
