Re: Coatesville FPOC
In Response To: Stom Thurmonds' Bi Racial Daughter ()
I just started researching the Coatesville connections last year - along with my first cousin Margo Williams. Margo's father (my uncle by marriage) Louis Smith Williams is from Coatesville.
The two main families are Williams and Potts (direct). One of my uncle Louis' aunts - MaryBelle Williams (born 1860) married a Johnson - and had six children born 1880 through 1902)- Edward, Frank, Mary E, Aida and Lawrence.
I received a gedcom from a Coatesville Williams researcher (new found internet cousin) - which includes "Pennington" and " Smith" and "Jackson" as related families.
Am trying to puzzle it all out. You will probably be far more familiar with these names than I am!
