I've come across a little more information about William's mother. Her name was Rachel Ann White, born 1/7/1840 in Carroll Co., MS. Parents were George White and Emma Leadbetter.

According to my grand-uncle, Reece Bethany (William's grandson), the family left Alabama after the civil war and came to Arkansas. The last child to be born in Alabama was Christopher Crit in 1864. The remaining children were all born in Arkansas, though I cannot find them in the 1870 census for Lafayette Co. Anyone know where they may have gone prior to settling at Walker's Creek? Rachel's husband, James J. Bethany died after 1875 but before 1880.

There is a Samuel H. Bethany, wife Quintella and children in George Township, Columbia Co., AR. He was born in MS abt 1829 according to the 1870 census, but in 1900 his birthplace as Alabama (living in Caney, Nevada Co., AR)

Any clues appreciated!
