  • -------------------------
    A Nathaniel and Rebecca Williams are enumerated in the 1880 census in Pickens County, South Carolina.  It appeared this matched our Nathaniel and Rebecca.  They also have a daughter Susan matching our Susan Williams who married Jacob Jenkins in Arkansas County, Arkansas.  But our Nathaniel and Rebecca were in Attala County, Mississippi in 1880.  See the record below this inset.

    However, other information that turned up related to this family and a Find a Grave memorial for Miriam Rebecca Bobo Williams indicates this a different Nathaniel and Rebecca.  The memorial for Nathaniel Jefferson Williams, matching this census, is linked to a memorial for his wife under the name of Rebecca Edens Williams.  A memorial on Find a Grave in the name Miriam Rebecca Bobo has her husband named as Nathaniel G WIlliams.  Miriam Rebecca's memorial is not linked to a memorial for her husband.  That grave has different birth and death dates than those for Rebecca Edens Williams.

    Miriam Rebecca Bobo Williams
    Birth Dec 1840 Cross Keys, Union County, South Carolina
    Death Aug 15, 1915

    In memory of Miriam Rebecca Bobo Fowler Williams, whose burial site is currently unknown. It is believed she was visiting family members in Attala Co MS, when she died.

    Miriam's first and middle names were different on virtually every census record, I list them here for the record: Mary on the 1860 census, Mary A on the 1870, Maricum on the 1880, Miram on the 1900. On some of her children's memorials is listed as Marium.

    Miriam first married John Lewis Fowler, abt 1859, in Union Co SC, they had two children: James Henry "Jim" Fowler, Rebecca Jane Fowler Burrell. John died in the Civil War.

    She married second to Nathaniel G (S?) "Nathan" Williams, a Civil War Verteran, they had eight children: William S, Mary Lucinda, Susan "Sudie", Samuel Benjamin, Albert J, James Edward, Joseph J, and Sarah Williams.

    Miriam's parents were Manley Immanuel & Rebecca Jane [Bailey] Bobo, both born Cross Keys Union Co SC, and at some point migrated to Bartow Co GA.

    Her Bobo grandparents were Soloman Jr & Elizabeth "Betsy" [White] Bobo, both born in Cross Keys Union Co SC. Her Bailey grandparents, Harrison & Margaret [Duke] Bailey, of Union Co SC.
