I have just started to analyze the 1900 census entries, and
here is what I tentatively know about those Williams:

Robertson Co TN (the faded and smeared one)

may have had an earlier wife who was John's mother.

Sumner Co TN (Thomas + Alice)
Thomas was son of Ausburn Rigsby + Mary Lain. Ausburn was a

married a Rigsby about 1891, they had a couple of kids, and
then he died before 1900. Which Rigsby she married is hard

Hattie or Harriet, but I haven't looked at all the records
for DeKalb Co.

from the one in DeKalb, since he will be the hardest to
