I am looking for information on John Hiram Williams specifically his parents information. I am also looking for Mahala Singletary parent information. I know that they married in Williamson, Tennessee in 1823. I am related to them from his son Daniel H Williams & Samantha Williams. Daniel was born in Louisiana in 1834 and died ~1862. I know that John was born in Virginia around 1804 and died in Desoto Parish around 1854. There are family accounts that John was a baptist preacher. I found several land deeds that he owned in Louisiana.

Does anyone have access to a family bible for that Williams line? Is there a DNA project for this line? Any information on them or their descendants is greatly appreciated! Thank you, Amber
