Does anyone know of Hilliard Judge WILLIAMS and wife Martha?
Hilliard was born 1808 in Screven Co., per 1850Census, and eventually went to Sabine Co, Texas where he died 1894. He was married to a Martha born c1812-1813 also in Screven Co.
In 1820 Census there is a William WILLIAMS in Screven Co who had 2 sons age 10-16 (born bet 1804-1810) and Hilliard could be one of his sons. Does anyone know anything about family of William WILLIAMS?
In 1840 Hilliard and wife Martha were in Wilkinson Co GA:
1840 Census, Wilkinson Co GA
Hilliard J WILLIAMS 1 male under 5, 1 male bet 20-30, 1 fem under 5, 1 fem 20-30
In 1850 he was in Muscogee Co GA and the census shows his children:

Martha 38 Screven Co GA
David S age 16 Wilkinson Co GA>> my interest
Laura age 11 Wilkinson Co GA
John age 8 Muscogee Co GA
William 5 Muscogee Co GA

Later in 1870 and 1880 he and wife Martha were in Sabin Co Texas. He was shown as widower in 1880 Census, and I found him buried in a Williams Family Cemetery in Sabin Co in 1894 with CW info:

Does anyone know where the Civil War District 1107 in GA was, where he was a Captain?
