WILLIAMS posted by Pat LaCroix ( on Tuesday, September 2, 1997
I am searching for info on my ggrandfather, WILLIAMS, James Madison. He was born on 4/28/1855 in Madison County, IA. The problem is that I do not have the names of his parents. I do know that in 1860, he moved with his parents to DeKalb Co., MO and his parents died shortly after that and he was left an orphan. If you have anything that might coincide with this man, please let me know.
