William was born in SC probably Spartanburg Area, I have found his mother to be named Susan, born around 1815-1820 in SC.. I think Peter is his grandfather instead of his father as listed in some trees. Peter was a clay brick maker in the Cowpens, SC area. They later moved to Green Hill, Rutherford Co, NC by the 1870 census. Still trying to find a husband for Susan, and wife and parents for Peter.
