Finger / Williams family history needed!! TN?/VA?/NC?

Hello,

I am new to searching for my family information and I am having trouble with one side of my family with the surname of FINGER. Here is the only thing I know.

I was told:

Great Grandmother's Name was: Nellie Ann Finger
May have been part native american- Was never discussed because of the public's attitude towards that at the time.
Could have been born anywhere but I would assume TN/VA or NC. Most of my family is from Sevier TN and some came from NC. She was living in Lee County VA at the time of her death. She was married to William Murphy Williams and had several children including my Grandfather, William Elmer Williams. I know he had a sister named Maude a few other siblings. I was told that my grandfather, William Elmer Williasm was born in Windy Rock TN from what was written in the family bible.
That is all I know.

I am searching for ANY information on Nellie Ann Finger (not sure if Nellie was a nickname or not) and on William Murphy Williams who would have also been from TN and did die in Lee county.
I know my my Grandfather, William Elmer Williams was born in 1914- Windy Rock TN according to bible recording.

I am 35, live in VA and have colon cancer. I am trying to trace my family history and make sure my daughter has a copy as well as my Dad. We have never really known anything about our family's history. Thanks so much for ANY help.
Please email at hiddenfieldsfarm@hotmail.com with ANY information. Thanks.
