      Have you been able to trace the family of Anne Williams? I have seen research that assigns her as the d/o John Williams and Anne Wilkerson . I have found evidence however that points to her being the d/o John Williams and Sarah Lindsey. In Johns Williams will 1709 he names a daughter Anne to be given her share at age 14

      10th Apr., 1709; 18th Apr., 1709. Will of John WILLIAMS, planter of Charles. County, MD. To wife Sarah, 100 A., part of tract --, to pass at her decease to son John and hrs. To eld. son William and hrs., residue, 150 A. of tract afsd. Wife extx. and residuary legatee, she to make gifts of personalty to following persons besides those already named, i. e., daus. Eliza: MACKAY and Mary and Anne WILLIAMS, at 14 yrs. of age, and to god-son John SMOOT at majority. Test: Archibald BISHOP, Moses FITZ HERRALD, Alex. NELSON. (Part 2-12. 58. Calendar of Wills: Volume 3)

      Then in 1745 there is this:

      Charles County Maryland Land Record Liber Z#2
      Page 74. At the request of Elizabeth Hanson, the following deed was recorded on Nov 12, 1745.
      John Williams of CC, planter, on Apr 10, 1709, by his will, devised to his wife, Sarah, 100 acres bounded by the south side of Lausons Marsh, during her natural life, and after her death, to his son, John Williams. The son, John Williams, died before attaining his full age, leaving Ann, his sister of the whole blood in the will named, who married Jas Connell, party to these presents, his heir. Now this deed, made May 26, 1740 witnesses that James Connell of St Mary's County, planter, & Anne, his wife, for 6000 lbs tobacco & 5 £, sell to John Dunbar of the same county, Gent the tract of 100 acres in sd will. Signed - James Connell, Anne (X her mark) Connell. Wit - Robt Yates, Wm Penn.

      Then came John Hanson before me, a CC JP, and made oath that some small time before the death of his father, Mr. Samuel Hanson, late Clerk of CC, Mr. John Dunbar lodged with him, sd Samuel, a deed from James Connell and Ann, his wife, to be recorded, but at the same time requested that it not be recorded until after the alienation money was paid. Dunbar, after the death of the late Clerk & after the removal of the records & all other papers relating to sd office, came to this deponent, he being then Deputy Clerk to Mr. Edmd Porteus & inquired for the aforesd deed, which deed John Hanson declares he looked for but could not find. Nor was sd deed, to his knowledge, found until some time limited by the Act of Assembly for recording deeds was expired. Signed - William Eilbeck.

      The archives also have evidence of this. Now I have a theory if a Wilkerson came into the picture at all it may be that Anne may have first married a Wilkerson given the fact that she was born prior to 1709 as in her fathers will .????????

      Have you run across any of this?
