............................. I just received this link for a 1934 Fannin TX newspaper article which researchers might be interested in:
In the article I. Williams states he was born in 1858 and that he is the son of J.M. Williams who married Sarah Ausmus in 1865. He further states that in 1883 he married Manery Riley Montgomery and they had seven children; Alice Jane, James Garrison, Jesse R.D., Abraham, Ikey, [-possibly Isaac?] Drucilla, Bertha Minerva.

===================== Related GenForum Post: - "James Madison Williams (B: 1829) of England, TX, & AR" by: Jerry Don Rozell http://genforum.genealogy.com/williams/messages/22141.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/williams/messages/22141.html - I am seeking information on my Great Great Great Grandfather James Madison Williams. He was born in 1829 in Devonshire, England and Imigrated to America by 1865. He was married to Sarah Ausmus in 1866. They were married in Hunt County, TX. He died in 1880 in Boles, AR. He and Sarah had 7 children. Martha B: 1868, John M. B: 1870, William B: 1872, Winnie Ann B: 1873, Thomas B: 1875, Sereny B: 1877, and Mary B: 1879. Winnie Ann was my G G Grandmother. According to family legend, when James died, Sarah "sold" Winnie into Indentured Servitude to Thomas H. Cox, whom she later married and bore a child, for $500. Any information on James and his family would help a great deal. Thanks, Jerry Don
