    However, other information that turned up related to this family and aFind a Grave memorial for Miriam Rebecca Bobo Williams indicates thisa different Nathaniel and Rebecca.  The memorial for NathanielJefferson Williams, matching this census, is linked to a memorial forhis wife under the name of Rebecca Edens Williams.  A memorial on Finda Grave in the name Miriam Rebecca Bobo has her husband named asNathaniel G WIlliams.  Miriam Rebecca's memorial is not linked to amemorial for her husband.  That grave has different birth and deathdates than those for Rbecca Edens Williams.
