On my trip to Ozark, Franklin County, AR, I found this will in the Wills
of Franklin Co., AR Ozark and Charleston 1838-1920. I thought this was
the William that we were looking for but it is not. However, maybe it can
help one of you. I also have photos of this Williams gravesite and other
family members. Email for the photos.
