As you can imagine there are at least 25 if not more "William" (Bill, Willie, Will, etc) in the Hartsell History book..I did find a Rufas (much easier name to find) in the 1880 census (5 mo. old) in Furr Twp. Stanly County. born to 22 year old Jonas Wiley and wifeEllen (Furr) Hartsell ..he is listed as head of household with 3 siblings (Aaron, 18, Mary, 30 and Doctor Franklin, 28) brothers are working on the farm. Jonas W. is son of Houston, son of Jonas and Susan (Stogner) Hartsell/ son of JOHN & Rosena (Horlacher) Hartsell. the Williams are so many it will take more diligent research to figure out which one may have been your own.
