William and Sophia are on 9 data bases on RWWC
http://worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi
with no daes at all. It looks suspiciously like several of them added new data bases instead of replacing old ones, too. You would do the world, them and yourself a favor if you contacted each person who has them, to compare notes, swap data and suggest they delete the old data bases.

According to one of the DB's, they were married in Madison County. This could be them, from the LDS 1880,

Census Place Twelve-Mile, Madison, Missouri

Her birth place is off, and "Sophronia" is exactly "Sophia" but everything else looks reasonable, including ages, middle initials and his birth place. The RWWC people say they married in 1858, so James B. there fits - he is either the first or second born. In my experience, 10% of the birth states are off for the princilpals, 15 - 20 % for the parents.

My own personal best is an ancestor who said he was born in Kentucky, Ohio and W. Virginia for the 1850, 1860 and 1870 censuses, respectively.

I hope this helps. I'm not related.
