  • Notes 
    • The life that William and Elizabeth lived was an interesting one. Evidently they had marital problems, because along about the time their last son was born, they separated. About seven years later in 1824, William applied for a divorce, although there's no record of the divorce being final, he undoubtedly received a divorce from Elizabeth Van Hooser in 1824. Previous to this time he had been in Madison county, Illinois, returning to Overton county, Tennessee, in the year of 1824 to get the divorce.

      Immediately following his divorce from Elizabeth, William married a girl by the name of Rebecca Lewellyn. Although they were on the property in Tennessee in 1828, in the 1830 census they were back in Fayette county, Illinois. William was living next to Abraham and William Howard. They were his nephews, the sons of his oldest sister, Lydia Stewart Howard.
