Apologies for the delay -- my John Williams was born abt 1830 -- records list him frequently as John N. Williams (1861, 1871 Census in Kent County) believe his full name was John Norman Williams based on son's middle name. John Williams married Zerada Mabel Moran abt 1852 (d/o Daniel Moran and Mahala Noble). Zerada was from Big Island, Prince Edward County (b 1835; d. 1901). They later moved to the Chatham-Kent area. Had 3 children: Mahala Teresa Williams (b. 1853), Daniel Norman Williams (b. 1856), and Mary Cecilia Williams (b. 1858).
John Williams died in 1874 in Kent County.
Any info you could provide would be appreciated.
