I cannot find my greatgrandparents

+1 vote
James Andrew Williams, born 12 Jun 1864, Kershaw County, SC;mother died about time he was born; raised by cousin,by Ann Matilda Faulkenberry; died 30 Jul 1927. His death certificate has father as Frank Williams , b Union County, NC; mother unknown. There are too many Frank Williams in NC and SC. I was told that Frank was a preacher in Westville and Heath Springs. No leads there. I had an uncle , Archie Franklin, James Andrew's oldest son. No one in family knows anything more than this. I have checked cemeteries for a female Williams buried in the Thorn Hill area-no luck.Ancestry is loaded with Franks , many the right age to be father but no clue as to correct man. Thanks

He was born June 12, 1863 not 1864 according to death certificate. Picture of death certificate photo at:


You might try again, looking that is copy photo while your there and post on his page with other data.  Would be easier to search and help you with everything upfront.

Have a great day.
