Talented, intriguing Puerto Rican poet William Carlos Williams offers this book of poetry – it’s in English, despite the title – which inspires and intrigues. I’ve just put it live!

As many of you know, I am writing a series of books based on Naomi Jackson Oxendine, born 1784 who then had four children in Jackson County TN. This family was all involved in the chancery records that most of the family genealogists have delved through.
Here’s my challenge.
We know that Naomi had two children, Jonathan and Polly, with “The Devil Bill Williams”. He had a ruthless reputation. I didn’t mind making him the “bad guy” in my books. However, I’m at the point where Naomi meets David Oxendine, and we know she then has two children with David. I want to therefore do something to Bill. However, I can’t find any research ANYWHERE which indicates what happened to bill after Polly was born. So I’m nervous about stuffing Bill in jail, for example, if anybody knows what actually happened to him.

Does anybody know?
If we agree that nobody knows, I think I’m putting Bill in jail. Hopefully none of us descendants will mind that. Maybe it’s more likely in that time-frame that he would have been hung but I’m less keen on killing off a real life person when we’re not sure what happened to him.
I haven’t updated my Oxendine pages in a while, so I’m going to go through and refresh them all to make sure they have everything I know about the family members in the books. I’m writing in the 1800-1810 timeframe. If you have anything to add to my pages, let me know.
Here’s book 1 – it’s free – if you haven’t seen it yet –
I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. I’m happy to take any suggestions.
