I am looking for information on my 2nd great grandfather. His name was James Benjamin Williams. He lived in/near Ozark Alabama, around Dale, Bullock and Coffee counties. His wife's name was Ella M. Hays Williams, Hays is maiden name. His birthdate was 4/27/1876 and death date was 9/3/1927. He had a son named George Hubert Williams who was married to Mable Clarice Marshall Williams, Marshall maiden name. I have some info on him but can not find anything more about his relatives. My grandfather says there should be some cherokee indian in him but not sure about that. Any info on his relatives would be great.
