Charles, Family legend says that William & Roy were born in Maryland. That their father served in Cornwallis' Army. They were indentured 1804 as he died, and their mother unable to care for them. So they were placed in care of the county overseer for the poor and indentured. Roy ran away before fulfilling his indenture contract, & never heard from again. No documentation of proof on his father or mother. Several remain searching, but WB's ancestry remains elusive to date.
