Robert Williams born 26 Oct 1822 ad 17 Aug 1893 and Rhoda Dudley b 14 April 1840 d 22 Oct 1899 daughter of Thomas Dudley and Rhoda Waterfield. (Robert had one brother John b 13 May 1817 and d 6 June 1890 married 7 Nov 1856 Rhoda's sister Frances and two sister's that never married Mary (Polly) and Elizabeth. These four were the children of John Williams b 1787 (could not find death date) and married Lydia Dudley.
So this family was one of the first families on Knotts Island and has many ancestors still living there. Brenda Twiford and I are trying to tie Tim (son of Elliott Williams) into this line right now. The lack of wills and land transfers are causing a problem. We can't find documentation evidence that they belong to the same family but we are pretty sure they do connect.
