William might have been a migrant farmer because it appears he was a frequent mover. That would be common for farmers who would go where the crops were currently in their growing season. In 1880 William & Fannie were living in Sugar Valley, Gordon, Georgia with their children. William was a farmer. By 1900 he and the family were 92 miles away in Stone Mountain. 1910 saw them closer in Lithonia which is in Dekalb county, about 10 miles south. All of these areas are heavily farmed. His wife died sometime around 1925 and in 1930 William was living in the home of his daughter Willie Nash Dunaway. They lived in Dade county, Florida.
