Kay, good to hear from you. I do not know of the individuals you refer to but there are a number of William's of that era. William baptised 1828 buried 1908 a farmer in Thwing or his son William baptised 1864, buried 1931 also in Thwing.
Let me know if you can find any connection to them. Is there any other information that you have and I will try to find a connection. The majority of my ancestors lived in either Thwing or Cayton, both small villages on the Yorkshire coast, some 50 miles south of my home. What part of the US do you live as I belive my great uncle, Cyril, emigrated from Yorkshire to the US
