WILLIAMS, WILSON. (p.329): This record should be corrected to read that he 
was a son of Lodowick Williams of Camden County, N.C., and is so shown in 
Vol. II, p.323- The William Williams erroneously named as his father, was 
probably his uncle. Lodowick Williams served in the North Carolina Line 
during the Revolutionary War, and is shown in the 1790 Census of Camden 
County, N.C.


Wilson Williams was born in North Carolina about 1760, a son of William 
Williams. The elder Williams died in Glynn County in the 1790s. Wilson 
Williams' wife was named Elizabeth but her maiden name is unknown. They had 
five children (order of birth uncertain):

1. Esther	m. Rigdon Brown. Moved to Fla.
2. Christiana	m. David Goodgame Jones.
3. Hettie	died single.
4. Harriet	died single
5. William H.	m. Ann Jane Church, Jan. 30, 1822, dau. of Dr. Lemuel Church 
of St. Marys. Died 1825.

Wilson Williams moved to Camden County about 1786 and was granted 150 acres 
of land there, Jan. 22, 1789. Joined by his wife he sold this land to 
Redding Blount Dec. 27, 1794, This land had been surveyed for him Nov. 12, 
1786, which evidently marked the time when he moved to Camden (see deed 
book A, p. 217, Camden County).
Mr. Williams died testate in 1803. His will dated Dec. 7, 1802, was 
probated Aug. 17, 1803, in Camden Court of Ordinary. His home-place in St. 
Marys was devised to his wife. A division of his slaves was had between 
Jones and wife, Hickman and wife, and Wm. H. Williams, as "sole heirs" of 
their father, Sept. 21, 1821 (see deed book "K", p. 451, Camden). This 
would indicate the daughters Harriet, Hetty, and Esther, were dead and had 
died without heirs.
