Mary Elizabeth Williams was the daughter of Benjamin Boyd Williams and Sarah Elizabeth "Bettie" McHenry of Murfreesboro, Rutherford County, Tennessee.. She was one of five children born to the couple. Her siblings were: Thomas Williams, Boyd Williams, Martha Williams (Mrs. Winfred Lanier), Jennie B. Williams (Mrs. Thomas W. Hale), and Bennie Williams (Mrs. Joseph R. Tarpley). In addition, Mary had 2 half siblings; David James "D.J." and Sallie Francis Williams. These siblings were from Mary's father's first marriage. Both children were born in Florida and it appears that their mother must have died in childbirth.
Mary owned and lived in her own home located at: 1203 Canterbury Drive in Belle Meade. Heart problems forced her into a nursing home for the last year of her life. The nursing home was located at: 1706 19th Ave. South. Nashville, TN.
Note: There is a discrepancy regarding Mary's date of birth. Her gravestone lists Feb. 3, 1872 as her birthdate but her death certificate states that she was born on Feb 15, 1872.
