Are Victoria Williams and Lucinda Williams related?

“I’ve traced my lineage back to my great-grandfather Captain Williams, who came over from Wales when he couldn’t be on the sea anymore,” Victoria Williams told me when I called her. “And Lucinda and I aren’t related, although you can say we might be. You know, her father’s name is Miller and my mother’s maiden name is Miller.” Neither Lucinda nor Victoria is related to Hank Williams, Vanessa Williams, or Wendy O. Williams.
