I am searching for information on my great-grandfather, Henry Williams. And to make it clear to ensure correct results he was white.

Henry was born on October 17, 1915 in Mississippi. I received hints on Ancestry.com that gave the location as Lauderdale. I also found a Henry Williams in the census on FamilySearch.com from with that information.

I am also searching for information on the possible father of Henry, Langdon Williams.
The following information is taken from FamilySearch.com and is the only information I have found on Langdon. I strongly feel that this is Henry's father because he is one of the only whites that met the criteria I am searching for, the census has Lauderdale in it and he has a son named Henry born in 1915.
