Edward Williams Family of Pitt County

I am looking to make the connection from Edward Williams, Sr (Revolutionary War soldier,) his son Edward, Jr. (married a Tryphena,) who eventually made the trek from Pitt County to Tennesse (recorded in the Pitt County Chronicles) to my 2nd great grandmother, Nancy Williams. Confusing, I know.

I'm trying to prove Nancy Williams is a direct descendant of Edward's through, possibly,  a John (R.) Williams. At some point, Nancy married Nathan W (Williams ?) Jones. They lived mostly in Tipton County, Tennessee. They named one of their daughters Kate (Katie) Bland Jones. At some point, Kate must have lived in, or near, Lauderdale County as she met and married Joseph Dupree Hawkins, son of Thomas R. Hawkins of Orange County, NC. It is through Kate and J. D. Hawkins that I am related to the Williams.

Neither I, or DAR, can find any marriage or any other provable record for Nathan and Nancy. There are only a few records on their children. Kate's death certificate gave us the info on her parents. Right now, it looks like we must depend upon a family Bible, for which I've found no existence, or some other dependable source to solve the mysteries.

I would so greatly appreciate any light anyone can shed on my dilemma.

Best regards,
