Some Descendants of John Williams of Hanover County, Virginia

My husband and I both have ancestors named Williams - he in fact had two different Williams families in his own tree. Probably all three Williams families have Welsh roots, but any family connection between them in historical times seems unlikely. This Williams family - descendants of John Williams and Mary Keeling - has been traced further back than the others and probably has more conflicts and confusions than any other family I research. Unfortunately, some of the early researchers hopelessly confused men of the same name. I've done my best to sort through the problems and what is here on these pages is what seems to me to be the most logical based on the records I have found. I may have made errors. There were several Revolutionary War soldiers in the third generation, large families, many sons, and as a result there are many descendants.
