Williams & Sharp Family History

Revised December 1, 2022                                                  

For this section, I began with my interpretation of the Williams-Sharp family bible which I have now. Then, a significant note of gratitude goes out to Scott K. Williams of Florissant MO, for he performed years of work and added tremendously to the wealth of knowledge of the Williams clan. By his reckoning, among all the different Williams families in the U.S., ours is a part of "DNA Group 12," i.e. the descendants of John Williams, born in Wales in 1679 and migrated to the Colonies in the 1690's. Scott's web site is no longer on the Internet, at least that I can find, so I have captured one of his last occurrences and show it here.

Also, it should be noted that one of the first counties created in the Colony of Virginia, in 1656, was Rappahannock which was later divided in 1692 into Essex and Richmond, the latter not to be confused with the city of Richmond formed in 1737. And that "old" Rappahannock County should not be confused with the "new" Rappahannock County much further inland created in 1833. (In fact, Virginia had so many county line and name changes from 1607 to the mid-1700's, one could easily be born in one county, marry in another and die in yet another and never move from the same house!) Also, some of these ancestors lived in early New York which was founded in the early 1600's by the Dutch as New Netherland Colony, which I abbreviate as NN below. It was taken over by the British in 1664 and renamed New York. I should add that the Crown Colony of Carolina was split into North and South Carolina in 1712.

I have used a style that I hope can be followed significantly better than the Bible inscriptions. In addition to births, deaths and marriages, I have added some descriptions of certain family mem-bers who attained some level of fame or accomplishment. If persons were/are known by other than their first name, I have indicated by underlining or quotations, wherever I could discover this, such as in bible entries or by personal recollection.

In the descriptions below, the leading number in curly braces - {} - preceding each entry is my arbitrary Generation Number (from older to younger) in order to help keep the various genera-tions straight. In this study I began with {1} herein to align this study with that of the other fami-lies. Any listed child who appears later as a member of the next generation will simply have the years of birth & death and a reference to the next generation such that all pertinent information about that individual is in one place. Also, "child of", "daughter of" and "son of" are shortened to "c/o", "d/o" and "s/o" and born, married and died are abbreviated to b. m. and d. I use the tilde (~) to indicate "circa," the modern-day 2-character postal code for American states and colonies, incl. for includes or including and Cty. is used for county.



{1} An American Indian princess, b. ~1595 on tribal lands in Va, the d/o the Chief of the Powhatan tribe, raised with the name Matoaka Patawomeck, became friendly with the early English immigrants. The Chief, believing an old Indian custom that if strangers knew her real name harm would come to her, told outsiders her name was Pocahontas, meaning "playful one". After a marriage to another American Indian, she converted to Christianity, took the name Rebecca & m. John Rolfe (b. May 6 1585 Heacham, England, d.
