Meantime I have acquired enough information to determine my place in the Cape Fear line. William 4) was the youngest child of William 3), being only about two years old when his father died. He and his brothers and sisters were raised by Jerusha and her second husband, William L. Walker, who had eight more children. My impression is that little or nothing would be known about William 3)´s family if the fifth Walker child, Hannah, had not married John Bethea of the Sweat Swamp branch. William 4) married Jeannette Ferguson Aug 1, 1815. Their youngest son, Philip 5), born about 1825, was my great-grandfather. He married Sarah Louise Poole after 1870 and their only child, John Brown Bethea 6), my grandfather, was born in 1874. Philip died between 1880 and 1900. John B.6) married Nancy Messer about 1904. They had four daughters before their only son, William Hunter 7) was born on 28 Feb. 1918. John B. died in Dec. 1944. William H. 7) married Iva Belle Moore in Dec. 1938. They had five children. I, William H. Jr.8) was the first born.
