I am looking for info on J.D. "Louis" Williams. he was born Jun 22, 1861 in Nauvoo. There was some family from Winston Co. Not sure if this group lived there. All we know is that his father was killed in the civil was either just before or soon after his birth (maybe a couple of years) The family story goes that JD was named after Jefferson Davis because he was the one who told his mother that he was killed. Any help you can give would be helpful. There is no birth record and his death record lists parents unknown.
