In Reply to: 1850 Census - Travis County, TX // Teresa Highsmith & Louisa (Turner) DUTY by Sheryl Williams of 872

This is an abstraction of allied families of my Williams line found in 1860 Bastrop County, Texas. I hope this is helpful for other researchers.

My focus has been connections between Williams, Turner, Highsmith and allied lines. I followed Teresa (Williams) Highsmith to this census page in hopes of locating her descendants. She is the only sibling of my direct ancestor Malkijah "Lige" Williams.
