Calvin G. Washington Williams

Of all the Saints on the Satilla River, few were more dedicated to the Mormon mission (certainly none south of the Satilla River), than Calvin Greenberry Washington Williams. After hearing the Latter-day Saints' core message during a talk given by missionaries to the area, Williams entered a period of what his descendants have described as "investigation" into the Mormon interpretation of the Gospel, and of the Book of Mormon. After investigating for six months, he joined the Church, and never again showed doubt in its cause, or hesitation in supporting it. He and his family are generally regarded as one of the most important founding families of the community now known as Little Utah, and of the Satilla-McDonald Branch [later the Axson Ward] of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
