Hawkins County. She is suppose to be a Winstead married a Williams or
a Williams married a Winstead. She had a daughter born in Hawkins
County @ 1884? She relocated to Illinois. I have history in Illinois
but nothing prior. Her Father was maybe a Winstead as her daughter's
name was Kathryn Henrietta Williams born August 19, 1884 in
Rogersville, Tn. Molly was also called "Tishy"? I have a bit of
information also that lists Mollie's mother as Mary Winstead or
Williams? Anyone with any thing please help. I will share all I have
of her life when she left Tennessee. Thank you.
