I am Julia Diane Williams, daughter of Mary Kathrine Howard (deceased) Granddaughter to Virginia Trotter Alverson (married to John Preston Williams, one child (my father) both Virginia and John are deceased)
Virginia's mother was Mabel Trotter Alverson (deceased) married to Melvin Sydney Alverson (deceased) they had 4 children, all deceased, 2 daughters whose names I can't recall, they died of scarlet fever around the ages 4 to 7. Virginia, and Melvin Sydney Jr.. This is where I get stuck, I am told that I am related to the people who own the Trotter Reality company that sells beach properties up and down the NC, SC and GA coast, But we lost the family bible and my grandmother died before I could get the information from her. I've also been told that we are directly related to an Earldom in the UK, but here is where I get stuck, I hope my info can help you. And maybe you can help me. When I search Earl of Trotter, I get links to the Earls Guary and Auckland and apparently those left of the Trotters I'm related to resettled to Ireland and are counted among the gentry there to this day( after choosing the Scottish side during a very important war against England.) I'll keep digging and make a wikitree eventually but I feel like I've hit a wall.
Thank you, I did not give my fathers name as he is still living, *he was adopted in 1951 in Greensboro NC and I can trace Mable Trotter Alverson back in the DAR records.
