Hi Linda, Martin Williams’ father Neriah (Neri) was a brother to your James Williams who m. Rebecca Brannon and had T.J. Williams who was the father of Julia Williams, who married Owen Allen. Neri’s daughter Alza m. James Large and had a daughter Corsenia, who m. Samuel Neal Allen, the son of Owen Allen’s Uncle James Allen. Alza’s first child (Ibby McClure) was by Martin’s wifes brother Enoch, I suspect as Ibby was named in a law suit agains Sarah Elizabeth Barnett,McClure, Jones. It was in regards to Werner McClure’s estate. Ibby was born the same year that Enoch died at Camp Douglas.1864

Julia Williams was the daughter of Jefferson Williams and Nancy Campbell. Jefferson was the son of James and Rebecca. There was no T in his name–I have his death certificate–in fact he had two of them.

Ibby McClure md. Calvin Alexander Allen, bro of Owen.
Yes, Ibby McClure was a half sister to my gg grandmother Corsenia ” Senie” Large Allen. She married Samuel Neal Allen a 1st cousin to Owen Allen. Samuel’s father James and John G. Allen were brothers.
As far as my refference to Jefferson Williams as T. J. ( for Thomas Jefferson) That came from my father ( who was raised in Rockcastle Co.) He and all of the older ones from that area that he knew always referred to Jefferson as T. J. Williams. Also a great grandson of John G. who is still alive and visited with me and daddy this summer called him T. J. Williams. As well as another lady who’s grandfather bought the old farm that Jefferson owned there in Rockcastle called him that when we corresponded. That is what her grandfather called him.
I do realize that all the census records ( and I now know his death record called him Jefferson.) I’m was just going by what the people I know call him. Sorry if it caused confusion.

I notice that you said that your GGgrandmother was Sarah Ellen Bishop, daughter of Mary Neely and John Bishop. I am wondering what John Bishop was married to Mary Neely. You said that Kezziah Bishop was married to Jessee Walling. I only have one Kezziah Bishop who married William Hale. I show a Sarah E. Bishop as the daughter of Mary ‘Polly’ Neeley and Gordon W. Bishop. I don’t know if this is your GGgrandma or not, but I don’t find her married to a John Bishop, so I was wondering if you could tell me which John Bishop she was married to. I do have Sarah Bishop, daughter of Samuel Bishop and Mary Neeley married to Napoleon Conley, son of Margaret Conley and John Walling. So if you can help straighten me out, I would appreciate.

Neriah Williams was my Grandmother (Bertha Collins Stephens) Greatgrandfather on her father’s (James Edward Collins) mother’s (Rosanna Williams Collins) side
You say he was the great grandson of Jonathan HALE and Mary NEELEY, and Samuel BISHOP and Mary ???). Mary Polly Neeley, daughter of David Marion and Margaret Hancock Neeley, was married first to Samuel Bishop and then to Jonathan Hale. Who was Keziah Bishop’s parents?
