William PHILLIPS b. 1776 NC had 4 children in NC between 1800-1807 (Alpha, Bailey, Finetta, and Henry) before moving to Wilson Co, TN between 1807-1812. In Wilson Co he had four more children with Sallie Herrold (spelling variations): Seth, Thurza, James Riley and William Jr. Who is Sallie and was she the first and only wife of William PHILLIPS or was she a second marriage? We only have proof that she was the mother of Seth. She is my 4th great grandmother if proven to be the mother of the first four of William's children. If not her, then who was the first wife? It is not known where in NC William PHILLIPS was born, nor who his parents were. Would love and appreciate any help on this brick wall. Thank you.
