Looking for Descendants of Carrie M. and Abraham Williams
I am actively searching for descendents of Carrie M. (Edwards) Williams born about 1866 in Ohio and Abraham Williams born about 1861. They lived from about 1890 until sometime after 1913 in Coketon, WV in Tucker County. By 1920 Abraham was deceased and Carrie had moved with several of her children to Chicago, Illinois. It is believed she died in Chicago. She was at one time a school teacher and Abraham was a coal miner. The children with approximate birth years are as follows:
Mrs. Williams was an integral part of civil rights history in WV and it is quite important that any/all of her descendants be located. We believe that it is possible that no one even knows about her involvement in this historical event.
Thanks so much for any help you may be able to provide.
