It's possible their still might be a connection because this William was from High Point NC. He died in a fire I believe in the seventies. He had children a daughter and a son and at the moment I don't have thier mothers name handy. I'm not sure sure if they were married because his children took the last name of another man. His son which is myuncle would love to find his family he does'nt even know who grand parents were so thats making it difficult. His son is a very prominent and wealthy man, and I'm sure if his family knew of him they would be very proud and welcome him. IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING OR COULD HELP PLEASE DO SO.
