I added his tree information hastily last night, made connections to two existing profiles which have a long existing history. His tree may get a lot of looks over the next couple days. If anybody would like to add to it (additional ancestors, connections, or reliable sources) please jump in. I'm a 13th cousin three times removed.

No connection found (yet) to AJ Jacobs (

Certainly tragic that such a wonderful actor/comedian would take his own life.

No.  No connection to this very funny and compassionate man.  Mags

Bob, I added the 1850 census info to his gg/grandfather James, and added Haywood's siblings from that census.  That might help make more connections.

I found a Williams Family history web page with extensive documentation and pictures. Added parents for James plus all of the source references and narrative. Fascinating history.

Yes, 8th cousins. Someone removed the MCRA from both our lines because of a y-DNA mismatch. However, our y-DNA lines match.

Now that's something I did not expect, Robin and I were 13th cousins, once removed (13C1R) --Christopher Robinson (1501-1576)  > to my Huffman+Medlock complex (or so the Connection Finder postulates)
