  • Notes 
    • William moved to Georgia in the 1790's. He may have first lived in Screven county where his uncle, Hillery Cason lived. By 1800, he was in Washington County. Family tradition is that he remained there until his old age when he moved to the southern part of what is now Brooks County on the Florida border where he died. His wife is supposedly buried at Indian Springs Church in Leon County, Florida, grave unmarked.
