Note: Information comes from p. 248 of "Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia, Vol III" by Folks Huxford. It also says that William was a representative from Appling county in 1829 and that his son Silas was Senator from the 3rd district of Appling county, 1865-1866. I can't yet connect this family to my line but I
feel it may and there is another Moses as one of William's sons and this may turn out to be a tie in?
Huxford Vol IV says he is buried in the Overstreet Cemetary (unmarked), named for him apparently.
