Re: BOX as it relates to WILLIAMS

Sabra Jane married Henry Williams. Her sister who is listed as Aunt Sis married Mack Williams.

Most of the Box family trees are based on The Box Book by Ophelia Wade in 1975. She pulled together an amazing amount of documentation and oral history but made a lot of mistakes when she began to make assumptions to connect the documentation. The Box family information I have been giving you will deviate quite a bit from Wade's. We have managed to find more documentation but when we start trying to connect the documentation we have some of the same problems that Wade had.
The puzzle we are working on just know is the Robert Box who married Jane Goodwin. He could be the son of Robert Box, Junr. who MAY have been the Robert Box Sr. of the 1790 census Pendleton Co. SC or he could be the Robert Box mentioned in the Will of John Box dated 1821. There are hints that support both. We are still searching for documentation to settle the issue. However, until we find it, it seems the version that Elsie Box used is the most probable.
