According to a book that I bought at the Darlington Hist. Society, WILLIAMSON TRAILS, by Frank Miller Richey, Pg. 3, I found the following:

THOMAS WILLIAMSON, born on 20 Jan. 1785; died on 27 Dec. 1857.
He married (1) SARAH LIDE WILDS in 1811. SARAH, daughter of SAMUEL WILDS and NANCY LIDE, born on 7 Aug. 1793.


iii ANN ELIZABETH WILLIAMSON, born on 11 Oct. 1815; died on 31 May 1824
iv SARAH WILDS WILLIAMSON, born on 5 Mar. 1821; died on 14 Jun. 1865.



vii JOSEPH WILDS WILLIAMSON, born on 16 Jun. 1825 at Darlington Co., SC; died on 10 May 1864; buried at Lowther's Hill Cemetery.


ix MARY ANN WILLIAMSON, born on 28 Aug. 1829 at Darlington Co., SC; died on 17 Feb. 1889. She married (1) ANDREW BLACKWOOD CHARLES on 1 Jan. 1859. Andrew, son of COL. WELLES CHARLES and SARAH ANN KOLB LIDE, born on 10 Jul. 1827; died on 15 Feb. 1891 at Louder's (sic) Hill Cemetery, Darlington Co., SC.

x ROBERT LIDE WILLIAMSON, born on 2 Feb. 1836; died on 8 Jul. 1844; buried at Lowther's Hill Cemetery, Darlington Co., SC.

THOMAS WILLIAMSON (father of the above children), was born on 18 Sept. 1748 at Henrico Co., Va.; died on 16 Dec. 1804. He married (1) ELIZABETH HINDS. ELIZABETH died on 21 Oct. 1821.

According to the book, the above THOMAS WILLIAMSON was the son of WILLIAM WILLIAMSON, born at Christ Church, Middlesex Co., Va.; died in 1771. (NOTE by B.L.: WILLIAM WILLIAMSON's SC will, from old Craven Co, Prince Fredericks Parish, was dated Oct. 1767; witnessed by GIDEON PARRISH, WILLIAM SMITH, & JOHN GESS. WILLIAM also had a will that was filed in old Johnston Co., N.C., disposing to his property in N.C. He owned land on Bear Creek, and is now the dividing line, more or less between Lenoir, Wayne, etc. Cos. The NC will was destroyed by fire, I was told, but the record that there had been one is still around.)

The KOLB FAMILY is connected to my DABBS FAMILY. The KOLBS had come down from Pennsylvania, and settled very close to the PeeDee River, not very far from the town of Darlington, SC.
HANNAH KOLB, dau. of COL. KOLB, born c1753 in Cheraw, Chesterfield County, SC, married JOSEPH DABBS II. Children: WILLIAM, NANCY, & SAMUEL.

I have been trying to find the parents of MARY ----?---- who was WILLIAM WILLIAMSON'S wife. If anyone has anything that might be a clue to her family, I would greatly appreciate having it passed along to me.

I would like you to know that Mr. Richey did not include any documentation in his book. However, a great deal of the records were put together by folks who do research at the Darlington Historical Society in Darlington.

Good luck to you,
