Note the 2004 entry.  Brian Holt Williams was my 1st cousin on my maternal side.  I met him when I was about 14 on a trip to Louisiana, where he lived.  He was about 6 months older than me.  He was in his late 30's when he died.  According to what I have been told, he had at least three children by at least three women, on whom I have almost no information.  Obviously this line needs further study, but it's still too fresh for some people to talk about, and some of the people who were closest are not in contact with me.
