Mason B. and Mary Mullikin
Yay! Another Mullikin cousin :-). Did you know Mason and Mary were married in Missouri? I was emailed the date and place by a Missouri researcher. According to Wheeler family history, Mason drove one of the wagons to Missouri for the Wheeler family.

Hi Connie,
I'm sorry, I don't know the names of Mary Prather's parents. I know her maiden name only because I've seen it in birth and death records for her children. Since I don't descend from the Prather line, I've never researched Prather wills in Mason or Nicholas County, KY. I'll look the next time I'm in Maysville and let you know if I find anything. How do you descend from Moses A. and Mary? I'm the gg-granddaughter of Moses' younger half brother, Lewis Mullikin.

William williams
Owingsville Outlook, Thu 16 Apr 1896 William Williams died at the home of his son, J.L. Williams, Friday Apr. 10 of pneumonia, aged 74 years. Left five children, all of whom were present except Mrs. Fletcher who lives in the West. Burial at Springfield Saturday. Stepstone.
I believe this Mrs. Fletcher is Rebecca E who married George Fletcher my GG Grandfather (who lived in Bath County KY). After their children were born they moved to Missouri(1885). In 1896 when William died Rebecca was living out west (of KY). It is confusing looking at those cemetery records. I have not proven this Mrs. Fletcher to be Rebecca. I have Rebecca E & Mary E in Bath County for 1850 afterwards in Montgomery County. I found birth records for some of William & Elizabeth Fortunes children (not) Rebecca & Mary. (however they are listed with the other children in 1860) If the Elizabeth b.1836 listed in Montgomery Co Fortune Cemetery is this Fortune then she would have only been 11 when my Rebecca was born. Not very likely. The William Williams in Sharpsburg, Bath Co has the exact date of death as the William in the Owingsville Outlook. Apr 10,1896. Says he left five children all present except Fletcher. I haven't been able to find the death dates for all the others so I don't know how many children were living in 1896. This would help. I believe my William Williams married "some" Elizabeth Fortune & is buried in Bath County. I have looked at this & threw it on the back burner for years. This has been my brick wall! Hope you can enlighten me.

Billie Swim Williams
Connie, I received the following message from a grandson of James K. Williams.

Billie Swim Williams
My grandfather James K. Williams[1903-1988]Eugene's brother and other family members said that Billie was five or six years old when Eugene and Bertha got together.

RE: William C
I'm not sure when I will be in KY. Where I can search in the court house for Gene and Bertha May marriage record... With the finding of Billie' birth index, showing he was not a Williams but a Swim, not sure now finding a marriage record is as important,,, you might want to change the info you posted to Eugene' memorial to show stepfather of William "Billie" Williams.

I know my oldest brother said he remembers Billie went by Billie Swim in the early or mid 1940'. People don't like to admit or tell their children they were born out of wed-lock. About 2 months ago my 1st cousin' daughter got in touch with me, she had been searching for her father and any info, family for almost 20 years... she was about 8/9 years old when her father left... she was never able to find when or where he was born... I had to fill her in, her father was born out of wedlock. After his mother married when he was about 10 years old, his mother changed his surname to that of her husband, although he was never adopted.

RE: Eugene & Bertha May Swim Williams
I know some of Billie' children looked like there grandmother Bertha May.

Many times when doing our family tree, we have to check and re-check what someone tells us about their/our families. My late uncle was into genealogy for over 60 years before his death, had written two books which can be found in some liberty, gave speeches at Universities. Traveled the world in search of info on our families. After I got into doing my family tree about 15 years ago, I found many mistakes in his research/books which I can support by documents. My uncle relied to much on what older people told him or a family book someone had published on a surname. Everyone makes mistakes, because they forget dates, places and get people mixed up.

I can understand one mistake in the census listing Billie as a Swim, but not two census both the 1930, & 1940, listing him as a Swim. If Billie was Eugene "Gene"' bio son I'm sure he would have been listed as Billie Williams, son in the census.

In talking to my oldest brother who is 83, he said when he was growing up, some of the older people around Salt Lick, refer to Billie as Billie Swim, Mrs. Williams' son. I think this requires more research.

Maybe you can find the time and look for a marriage record in Bath Co, for Eugene "Gene" and Bertha May, or its possible they might have married in Rowan Co.

I will do what I can to find the answer to this question.
