Sally's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great Grandparents:

John Williams ca 1620/25 - 1687 |  his parents
& Ann Whitely |  her parents
of Isle of Wight County, Virginia 

  This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!

  John Williams was probably the John Williams who was the headright of Col. Robert Pitt in 1643 (Nugent 1,145) and whose land in Nansemond is shown on a patent of 1662 to be near Robert Pitt of Isle of Wight--property granted  in 1663 to Thomas Davis but assigned to John Williams (ibid 488-89). When the widow Ann Whitely filed to administer her late husband's estate in 1672 the bondsmen were Col. Pitt's son John Pitt and Thomas Poole. John Williams made his will 7 Feb 1686 which was proved 2 May 1687.  Dr. Barry Hayes

Children of John Williams and Ann Whitely:
1. Ann Williams  named in father's will
2. Sarah Williams  named in father's will
3. Elizabeth Williams  named in father's will
4. Thomas Williams ca 1640 - 1693  named in father's will
        married Mary ?
5. John Williams ca 1640 -1692 Isle of Wight Co, VA   
                   named in father's will

        married [Elizabeth Whiteley] Anne ?
6. *Lewis Williams ca 1645 - 1716/17
        married Mary ?
7. George Williams ca 1640 - 1672
8. Rowland Williams ca 1640 -1677/78

John Williams ca 1640 - 1692 his parents

I don't think this is in final form. . . .
