The parents of William Bethany are James J. Bethany and Rachel A. Unknown. James J. died prior to 1880 as Rachel is a widow in the 1880 census. Also, land records show that Rachel purchased 40 acres in Lafayette County in 1882 and she is the "widow of James J. Bethany".
The following children are living with Rachel in Walker Creek, Lafayette, AR in 1880:
James C., age 18 (he married Bettie Glasgow in 1883)
Christopher, age 16 (he married Sarah 'Emma' Glasgow in 1887)
Major M. (need to get with my grand-uncle on this; he has stories of "Major Major Bethany)
Samuel, age 11
Coca (aka Coke) age 9 (she married James Sexton in 1888)
Alexander H., age 5

Look forward to hearing from you.
