WALKER / WESTON
It appears that my folks went from Charleston to Union County, sometime between 1808 and 1830. The two brothers, Daniel and William White Burroughs WESTON, were born on Sullivan's Island in Charleston, and married Walker sisters from Union Co, shortly after the girls' father, Jarrett WALKER, died there in 1825. I have read several places that they were from Richland Co, but no Walker folks have turned up there that fit either. My family folklore states that the Westons were from England and that a Roxie Weston had done the research to prove that they were to get an inheritance from London, in the 1930's. The two boys' father was a sailing captain and their two sisters, Abigail and Rebecca married two sailing captains, a Grant and a Lowry, and returned to England for their education. Letters were written constantly back and forth from England to Union Co, SC and Barbour Co, AL. Daniel Michael Weston, one of the two brothers, is my gg-grandfather. He married Sarah Walker. I have a picture of the family with son Newton A Weston in his confederate Uniform. His daughter, Martha Lenora Weston, was my g-grandmother. Daniel is listed in the 1830 Union Co, SC Census. Then they moved to Barbour Co, AL to the town of Glennville, where in 1860, he was a postmaster and owned the local store. William White Burroughs Weston, the other brother, joined them in Barbour Co, and was ordained as a preacher in May 1852. I have been in touch once with Charlie Weston in Clayton, one of WWB Weston's descendants, but have not heard from him but once. I was hoping that you had ties to this family and could tell me the name of the boy's father from Charleston. I know from letters that Charlie sent me, that their father was a sailing captain. He had ties to London and the Weston's that were once sponsors of the London Company. I know that the proof is out there, because of the earlier research done by "Aunt Roxie", whomever she was. I have not placed her in any family and never knew of her. The Westons were always associated with the Flowers Family from Barbour and Henry Co, AL. Martha Lenora Weston married William Moses Flowers, my g-grandfather. They lived in Wicksburg. They moved there from Barbour Co, where they lived directly across the road from the Rocky Mount Methodist Church. They are buried there, along with many others of my family. Does any of this ring a bell with you. I would appreciate any help that you can give me as to where to look or whom else to write. Sincerely, Cal Campbell, 141 Forest Hills, Talladega, AL 35160, 256-761-1532, gyhg84a@Prodigy.com

WILLIAMS was born in August 1814 in Union Co., SC. John probably had sons Ruel W. and Ephraim C. WILLIAMS, born 1811 and 1813 in either TN or AL. His next known son is Patrick McCorkle WILLIAMS, born 1817 in KY, possibly Trigg Co. The family was on its way to Hancock Co., IL where John WILLIAMS founded the Majorsville Methodist-Episcopal Church in the mid 1800's, holding services in his home before the church was built. At some point he married Letitia, born 1806 in SC, according to her age on the 1850 IL census and death date on her gravestone.

WILLIAMS, John and Lemuel R.
I am looking for the wife of John WILLIAMS, born 1791 to John (1762) WILLIAMS and Margaret McCorkle WILLIAMS in NC. He is father of Lemuel R. WILLIAMS, born 1814, probably in Union Co., SC. John (1791) fought in the War of 1812 attaining the rank of Major, and was called Major for the rest of his life. I'm trying to find the mother of Lemuel WILLIAMS and brother Patrick McCorkle WILLIAMS, born 1817 in KY. Other children may have been born to Major John and the unknown mother. They then went to Hancock Co., IL where Major John claimed some land set aside by the government for War of 1812 veterans. The small town of Majorville, IL was named for him, and he helped establish the Methodist-Episcopal Church there as a Methodist minister. Major John married Letitia at some point and more children were born to them in Hancock Co., IL. Lemuel WILLIAMS married Cassandre SIMMONS, born 1818 in KY; their children were born in IL, then they moved with some of them to Adair Co., MO in 1870. Patrick M. Williams married Lucetta POPE in IL and lived in Hancock Co. Any further information about Major John WILLIAMS, son of John and Margaret WILLIAMS of Union Co., SC will be appreciated. I think other children may have been born to him before moving to IL.
