WILLIAMS family

I am looking for information on my gg grandfather John Horatio Williams. He is listed in the 1880 census for Erath Co., at age 60, along with his son Robert H. Williams, my g-grandfather, age 21. John Horatio is buried in the Lingleville (spelling?) West End cemetery. His 20-year-old daughter Mary is also listed in the 1880 census, as the wife of Charles D. Ely. (Note: Robert H. Williams would marry the niece of Charles D. Ely).

I was disappointed to find that the census records are blank for the birthplace of the parents of John H. Williams, which increases the mystery of his background. His son lists the birthplace of J.H. Williams as being Pennsylvania, but our family tradition has him coming from England or Wales. However, he wouldn't ever talk about his background, so I don't know for sure.

Does anyone have any information about John H. Williams or his descendants? I know that Robert moved to Callahan County where my grandfather was born, but I don't know when that happened.

Thank you for any help you can give me.
