no problem, if i can't solve my own mysteries fun to solve someone else's.
i am finding the notification function for this board to be very useful, just noticed it and turned it on.
e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and i will see what i can do for you.
don't think i have a williams line but you never know. part of my problem is that my guys lived under assumed names. both my paternal and maternal lines did this, tho the bouviers definitely took it to new heights. my dad was born under an assumed name. they all got patents under assumed names. this complicates things.
once someone was helping me with one line and we assumed we were related one way because of the same name. it turned out that we were not related thru that line at all, but she surely did find some wonderful information for me. later we discovered that we were distantly related thru a completely different line. you never know.
you sound like someone i would like to have for a cousin.
e mail me and i will see what i can do.
