From http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/ga/carroll.htm

Excerpt from The life and times of James Martin Hamrick
"....I made a fine crop that year and sold my land early in 1861. I rented a farm and commenced to look out for another companion and was successful in meeting a nice lady, Miss Mary Brasher, near Carrollton. We soon became engaged and was to marry in May, but War Between the States caused a postponement...........

..............To commence life anew, that fall I went to school; and the next spring, 1863, I taught school and went to see the lady that I was engaged to and told her, as I was a cripple for life, it was with regret I would release her of our engagement, but she said she was willing to go through life with me. And so we were married the third Sunday in May by Rev. Nathan Smith...........

........That fall we moved to Villa Rica, and I and Dr. Brown opened up a grocery store and made money. In the month of May, 1864, my heart and home was saddened by the death of my wife..........."

Generation No. 2

2. WILEY ANN I.6 BRASHER (HENRY W.5, JOHN P.4, THOMAS L.3, THOMAS2, WILLIAM B.1) was born Apr 1845 in Carroll Co, GA, and died Aft. 1920 in Marshall Co, AL. She married JAMES M. WILLIAMS Oct 12, 1864 in Carroll Co, GA. He was born Jan 28, 1841 in GA, and died Bet. 1880 - 1900.

Notes for WILEY ANN I. BRASHER:

The 1850 census record for Henry Brasher in Carroll Co, GA lists this child as Wiley (M) age 4. The 1860 census for Henry Brasher lists him as Milligan (M) age 15.

Carroll Co, GA. Marriage
Wiley Brasher J. M. Williams Oct 12, 1864

After searching in vain for Wiley Brasher married to a J. M. (or any Wiley Brasher after 1860) I decided to give up. Then I found Nancy Brasher, daughter of Henry W. and Martha Brasher, living with Elizer N. Long and wife, Mary F. as 'aunt' in 1900 in Marshall Co. AL. Also living with them in Wiley A. I. Williams, mother-in-law. Nancy and Wiley are still living with Elizer and Mary Long in 1910. Then I went back to the 1880 census record in Blount Co, AL and found James M. Williams living next door to Henry W. Brasher. Nancy is still living with Henry W. in 1880. James M. Williams is married to W. A. I. and has a daughter Mary F. age 14. From this I have determined that Wiley on the 1850 census should be female. Also on the 1860 census it should be Wiley Ann and female instead of Milligan, male. This makes Wiley and Nancy sisters and Wiley is Mary Long's mother and Nancy her aunt.

1880 Blount Co, AL. James M. Williams 39 (or 34), W. A. I. 35, Mary F. 14.

1900 Marshall Co, AL Elizer N. Long 44, Mary F. 34, Children: Henry L. 15, Beulah I. 11, Charles W. 8, James A. 5, Effie 8/12. Aunt - Nancy E. Brasher 46 - single. Mother-in-law, Wiley A. I. Williams 55 - widow.

1910 Marshall Co, AL. Elizer N. Long 53, Mary F. 43, Children: Luther 25, Charles 18, James A. 15, Effie M. 10, Homer N. 4, Beulah Gamble 21 - widow. Mother-in-law, Wiley A. Williams 64 - widow. Aunt, Nancy Brasher 57 - single.

1920 Marshall Co, AL. Newton Long 63 - widow, Arthur (James) 25, Homer 14. Wiley Ann Williams 74 widow, Mother (should be mother-in-law).

On the 1900 and 1910 census Wiley said she had 4 children with 1 living. I have not found them on the 1870 census and do not have names for the 3 children who died. Mary F. Long is the only child I found.

Child of WILEY BRASHER and JAMES WILLIAMS is:

i. MARY F.7 WILLIAMS, b. Dec 4, 1865, Carroll Co, GA; d. Bet. 1910 - 1920, Marshall Co, AL; m. NEWTON ELIZER LONG, Aug 29, 1883, Marshall Co, AL; b. Dec 1855, GA; d. Feb 25, 1922, Marshall Co, AL.

First Baptist Church Boaz, Marshall County, AL
Willie R. Weir May 3, 1875 Feb 9, 1899 Wife of J. H. Weir

It certainly looks like this Willie R.Weir was John H.'s first wife. She died at about the right time. And born at about the right time. They were married about 1889 as the first child was born in 1890.

John is living with his parents in Marshall Co Alabama in the 1900 census of that county. He is 30 years old being born in October 1869. He is a widower. Also living with them are his children Neils D. (9), Mary (7), Cora (6), and Vernie (4).

In 1910 he is living with his wife Ida B. and stepdaughter Lillian who was 3 years old.

In 1927 or 1928 William H. Weir moved his family to Flintville, Tennessee (Lincoln county) because schools were free. In Alabama every child paid tuition and with a growing family it could be a problem.
