private msg from Gregory Williams -
"The oral history we have for John Williams in Alabama indicates that he and Christina were married in the “Nashville Area” and that she was born in Kentucky. There is some indication that she was his second wife, and that John’s first two children, Mahala and Ephraim, had a different mother. John is usually reported on the census as born in Virginia. We have found no documentation for John’s marriage to Christina, and no documentation of a prior marriage."
