    Only the petition was included. No details but speculation is that it was a petition to erect a courthouse in the center of Randolph County, NC. Signers: [selected signers from Randolph County page 1 and 3] William Reader, John Graves, Evachel Hancock, John Lawley, Elisha Lawley, Uriah Wright and Nathanl. Tucker.

[Editor's Note: While we can't be certain that these are in fact signers of the Randolph County petition we have been unable to locate a similar one for Moore County during the same time frame. Some of these names appear to be actual signatures while others are clearly written by the same person as other names around them. The Randolph County petition suffered from similar challenges including some signers that would be under 21 years old. Regardless, this is quite a list of northern Moore County residents during the late 1780's.]

      It has long been believed that George Williams [d. 1797 Moore County, NC] was the progenitor of many of the Williams families located in upper Moore County. George lived northwest of the Robbins crossroads on Flag Creek and left a will in 1797 listing sons James, Jeremiah, Thomas and William. We've been working to test many Williams' descendants to try and confirm this theory. To date, we have been able to test the following Williams men for 111 markers: [1] Terry Williams who descends from George > William Williams [1767-1842] > Thomas Greene Williams > William Wesley Williams [2] Mel Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > Matthew Williams > John Spanker Williams [3] Ben Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > John Williams > Edward A. Williams [4] Tim Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > Bryant Williams > Jerry Hubert Williams, Sr. [5] James Upshur Williams who descends from George > William Williams [1767-1842] > Joseph Williams > Upshur Furr Williams [6] Marvin Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] > John Williams > Noah Williams and [7] Ernest Williams who descends from George > Jeremiah Williams [b.1775] >Enoch Spinks Williams > Hubert Andrew Williams [8] Billy Williams who descends from George > William Williams [1767-1842] > William W. Williams [1799-bef 1870] > Levi Williams [1839-1917]. Interesting enough all eight of these men match each other but none are exact matches likely meaning mutations were more common within George's descendants than typically found. We are trying to recruit more samples from additional descendants to try and determine the exact meaning of the mutations. These descendants of George also match closely two samples from descendants of William Williams [1745-1813] and John Williams [b. 1770] both of Granville County, NC likely indicating a close connection between George and these Williams families. To date, we have been unable to make a connection between William and John of Granville although one clearly exists. More research is needed to connect them and to identify how George Williams fits into the picture.

      Three additional samples from upper Moore County Williams descendants have been taken that do not closely match descendants of George Williams. Jerry Williams, descendant of Jeremiah Williams [1784-1864] > Elias Terrel Williams [1830-1894] and Lee Williams, a descendant of Jeremiah > Stephen D. Williams [1823-1894] match each other and much to our surprise, Allen Williams, a descendant of Thomas Williams [1786-1859] was a very close match to both of the samples. Thomas Williams had long been believed to be a son of George Williams, but the Y-DNA results have called this into question. It is possible that Thomas Williams was a brother to Jeremiah and not a son to George. More research is needed to nail down this line and connection. As far as other Williams connections, Jerry and Allen's Y-DNA are close matches to a number of Williams men believed to have descended from Robert Williams [d.1772 Bute County, NC (current Warren County)]. Based on the closeness of the match, it is possible that Jeremiah and Thomas were grandchildren or great-grandchildren of Robert or a brother or cousin of Robert's.
