      NOTE
      William Willingham?s widow, Ann Samuel Daniel Willingham, moved to Jasper Co., GA after William died in Jones Co., GA by 12 Sept 1837. I believe the William listed in the following document is a son of William (son of Isaac) and is the William who died at age 24 in 1850 in Jasper Co., GA.
