Thanks for replying. I haven't been able to get past the fact that he was born in Orange County 1808. I can email you a list of his descendants to see if anything sounds familiar. One of his sons was William E. and my grandmothers name was Elizabeth b.3/21/1876 d. 8/31/1918. My ggrandfather named his children after his brothers and sisters so some of the names may tie in somewhere back in Orange County.
