Hello, My name is LaToya Williasms. I'm
beginnig to research my dads side of the family.
The last name was sankey but, as you can
see some of us are now going by the last
name williams. Story has it my great great
grand dad got Alfred Sankey (b. 1880- d1956)
got into some trouble in the Montgomery area.
He moved down to Mobile and changed his last
name form Sankey to Williams. I wa also
told that he and his wife Carrie Pierson (b 1884- d1951)
where the last of the slaves . So , I figured that the
last name Sankey was obtained through slavery.
If anybody has information about the Sankey's in the
Montogomery, Al area please contact me
at my e-mail address I would really appreciate
