Something Else

I would like to hear from whoever posted the information about James Williams and his party in connection with the Chiles-Walker Party's historical marker. I believe all these Williams boys might have been the brothers of my 2nd great-grandfather, William A. Williams, and the sons of my third great-grandfather John C. Williams, who came to Cape Girardeau County, Mo., circa 1819. William was his oldest child. I have a strong suspicion that James and the others were his younger brothers. I've only known that most of the family moved west, reportedly in 1849, but that obviously could be wrong. I also know that one brother was named James.
