Williams Family Cemetery
Akron, Hale County, Alabama

Williams Cemetery,  Akron (Hale County) Alabama East of Alabama Highway 60, East of Akron.

I have text for a small family cemetery in the middle of a cow pasture in Hale County, Alabama. It has the name Williams over the wrought iron gate. I call it the Williams Family Cemetery. I am still trying to fit all of these folks together in some sort of familial relationship. Among the surnames are: True, Williams, Bishop, Windham and a few others. I collected the information on video tape and transcribed it. It is not the property of anyone else, but I have allowed Lisa Wilson to put it on her Tracking Your Roots/Alabama page.

I would be happy to share the information and hopefull that if will help someone fill in some blanks on their family tree! I still have so many questions about mine!
