A couple of trees have his wife named Edith b. 1905
Another says Edith Beard 1904-1999, with parents Albert Joseph Beard and Martha Elizabeth Warthan as her parents.
I found a couple of trees on Ancestry with his (Orvilles) parents as

My 4th great grandfather was Christian Abshire who was born in 1793 in Burke, North Carolina and died in 1875 in Tazewell, Virginia.I do not know who is parents were, he could possibly tie in with your William, but who knows!
I hope this helps a little! Merry Christmas
