Williams - Godwin

A mystery in Georgia was discovered by Bob Godwin when he took his DNA test. Expecting to connect with his Godwin cousins, he learned that he was - in fact - a Williams Group 8 match. Bob has researched this connection back to the 1800s in Brooks County, Georgia.

His results are:

Robert E. Williams - born Apr 1856 in Florida (or Georgia - the census for 1880 states this) -- died 1931 in Brooks County, Georgia

Married Nancy Unknown and seemingly had no children.

In the 1880 census Robert's mother is living with him. She states that her name is Martha Timmons (or Timmer) age 47.

It is interesting to find in the 1910 Brooks County Census for Morven that the Williamses live next to the Godwin family and two Dailey families with Brunswick County, Virginia connections.

Bob is working on his Williams connection and would appreciate any help in getting this line further back.
