|Annie H Darracott 791, UDC - Lakeland, FL||RE: Find A Grave - WILLIAMS|
I'm going to guess that he is not the Williams you are looking for because the city cemetery was not established until 1880, and section J - the Confederate plot where this Williams is buried was not created until 1892. The cemetery wasn't named Greenwood until 1911, I believe.
I also believe that a man of importance to the community like the Mr. Williams you are searching for would have more than a bare-boned Gov't CSA marker.
I've seen online that this grave is attributed to the Mr. Williams you are searching for. I also saw that his wife died a day after he did after suffering from TB? If this is true, I would think I'd find her in the cemetery census book, because even unmarked graves are listed here - and there is no mention of her.
I saw that your Mr. Williams' children were raised by his brother, Nathan. While there is a Nathan Williams in Greenwood - he died in 1919 at age 91. I believe the actual brother is 1839-1934.
There was a downtown cemetery in use from 1881-1869. I don't know where all those bodies were moved to, but it's noted they were moved.
On the other hand - many people were moved from a downtown cemetery to Greenwood when the downtown cemetery land just became too valuable to remain a cemetery sometime around 1892.
If he's of relation to Roberson, Ivey, Patrick and Beasley families. Many of them were moved from the original Patrick Cemetery to Lake Hill Cemetery in 1884. That cemetery is very sandy and it's believed many older markers have sunk.
I am a member of the Lakeland UDC Chapter (my mother is president), but I live in Orlando around the corner from Greenwood Cemetery. I maintain the chapter UDC Findagrave page for them.
I actually have the Greenwood Cemetery census book in front of me and there are no extra notes about this Mr. Williams.
Here is my personal findagrave page:
If I can be of any help to you with Greenwood Cemetery, I'll be glad to assist. They open their files to me, and are very helpful.
Based upon circumstantial evidence, the dates just don't add up. I think Marshall Williams was buried elsewhere. I could be wrong, but from what I know, and the dates - it's not likely him.

Per your suggestion, I have transferred both to Carolyn Nutt. You have to be one of the nicest people I have dealt with.
Good morning Carrie,
I added the maiden name. Thank you for the information and thank you for all your work with the Find a Grave community. God bless.
