If the family information about the birth of William Crumpler is correct then these would probably have been the birth years for the children of Susanna Poland Crumpler Pitman Bottoms, born about 1793:
Martha Crumpler, born 1823-1824;
William Crumpler born 14 June 1825;
Mary Ann Pitman, born about 1826; and
William Briant Pitman, born about 1827.
That is assuming that none of the above were twins.
