Doll Javis Williams was the son of John Josiah Williams and Nancy A. Verser Williams. Doll was sometimes known as D. J. Williams. Doll's grave marker shows that he was born on September 6, 1874, but a researcher reports that Doll was born in July of 1873 in Marshall County, Alabama.

Doll came to Milam County, Texas with his parents. It was in Milam County that Doll, on January 16, 1896, married Lena Turney. Lena was born at Hanover, Milam County, Texas in 1876, the daughter of Robert N. "Bob" Turney and Saphronia Belle "Belle" Kirk Turney.

Doll and Lena had at least two children: (1) Elma Williams (b. in Milam County in November of 1896); and, (2) Clyde Robert Williams. Lena died in 1909 and is buried in Milam County at Oxsheer-Smith Cemetery.

Doll Williams later married Irene Best. He died in Austin, Travis County, Texas on July 5, 1950 and is buried in Milam County at Pin Oak Cemetery.
