I am in search of my wife's Williams side of her family of CaliborneCounty, TN. About 28 April 1889 Grover Harrison WILLIAMS was born toHenry Williams and Josephine GILBERT in Mulbery Flats, HancockCounty, TN. He, I think, was from VA but I have no documentation tojustify that thinking.

Grover Harrison had married Mary Ball of Gibson Station, TN and withhis children moved to TX with the rest of his family. Grover returnedto TN in the early 1920's and lived the rest of his life in GibsonStation, TN.I know this is not much information and with the name of Williamsbeing so prolific I have gotten no further than this.Any help will be appreciated and I will be indeted to you.

George MARION & Dillie COLLINS were my great grandpa and grandma. I know little about George Marion. I heard he came from a place around Sneedville called Black Water, I know nothing about his mom and dad other than his mom was full blooded Indian. George's first wife's name was Margaret and they had two sons (Homer & Charlie Marion) George later got together with Dillie Collins but I cant prove they were ever married. Dillie and George had three children (Leonard (Bill), Lula(Tootsie) & Wheeler Marion) they moved to Washington Co. Indiana around 1923. Wheeler said at one time that he asked George why they moved here and he said that George replied "because there was trouble down there " but he gave no details. Dillie's mom and dad were Ardell & Sarah Collins ( Melungeon) and They also had a son named Baxter Collins. Any information on any of these people is Welcome.

My great grandmother was Millie Collins and I haven't been able to find her in any census. She was from east TN area of Anderson, Campbell, Clairborne, Hancock, Hawkins , or Union County. She was married to (1) John FIELDS and (2) Lewis BOLDEN/BOLIN/BOWLIN that I know about but can find no records on. I don't have any birth, death or marriage dates on any of the above people. Millie and John FIELDS had the following children; Florence (1879?), Ed (1887?), Bird (1887), Cora (1891), and Milford (1892).
Millie divorced John (date unk) and married Lewis BOLDEN (date unk but around 1900). Lewis was evidently an abusive step father. Sometime around 1900, Bird, age 13 at the time, killed Lewis with an axe as he was drunk and beating on her brother Ed. This happened in Hancock or Claiborne County I believe. Haven't found any record of this either. I don't think she was ever charged with any crime. Any help in proving any of this saga of relationships will be deeply appreciated.
