Curious naming of Mary Ann Williams Hall's son - Elisha Prescott Hall. There is only a single Elisha Prescott in the country before then, a veteran of Revolutonary War from NH who moved to Maine. Perhaps Mary's father met him during the war - http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~tnlincol/geneal/yeager.txt
"John Williams, the maternal great-grandfather of Hugh B. Yeager and the father of Lucy Yeager, was an Englishman who came to America and settled in Virginia before the Revolutionary War. He was in that war for eight years and also was at the surrender of Cornwallis." [kdd - this is John Williams of SC. Public member tree here - http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/13987841/person/36204249. He had daughters Sarah and Mary, but mother's name differs ]

Another Williams born in Chester Co, PA died in Jackson Co, AL - Thomas Williams:

Numerous DNA matches between descendants of these Williams and descendants of Jeremiah Williams and Mary Elizabeth Fowler who were married in Madison Co, Al. on Dec 4 1819 and moved to Hot Spring, AR. He joined several other Williams familes there whose descendants all match each other, including Jesse Williams b.1790 and Elizabeth Williams who married Jehu Beason. An older Charles Williams and his daughter Elizabeth Burnett in Hot Spring, AR was in the same family group (see "Petitions of destitute citizens for rations, Feb.-Aug. 1866” on familysearch.org) .
Other families:
