About Elizabeth Macomber (Williams)

Elizabeth Macomber (born Williams) was granddaughter of Richard Williams and Frances Williams (born Deighton) and grandmother of Rebecca Gooding (born Macomber), who married Joseph Gooding born in Dighton, MA, July 1729.

Previous historians and genealogists have shown royal descent for the Richard Williams family, either through Richard Williams or his wife Frances Deighton, who is traced to Charlemagne by the medieval historian von Redlich, (NEHG 97:342-343). In his "Descent of General Douglas McArthur." von Redlich produced an ancestry chart leading from Richard and Frances to "Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Emperor of the West, born 2, Apr 747, died 28 Jan. 814; married in 771 the Swabian Princess Hildegard, died 30 Apr. 783."
