I am looking for Leander J WILLIAMS in the Adolphus and Elizabeth WILLIAMS family. He was found on the 1870 census, Wayne Co,TN with his parents and some of his siblings. When his family moved to Saline Co, AR, he was not found in the family on the 1880 census, and not found in Saline Co at all. So, thought he may have stayed in Wayne Co, TN, married a local girl, and settled there. On the 1880 census for Saline Co, AR, there are two gr children who do not appear to belong to anyone present in that household but could be the children of Leander and his wife. The children are: John and Florinda WILLIAMS, ages 4 and 2 respectively. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, Venee Stuart-Henson...
