William Furst (b. 10/12/1861) son of Sophia Bergman

Does anyone have information of William Furst born Oct. 21, 1861 in Alabama? He is the son of Sophia Bergman (Anna/Annie Sophia) who was born on 1-20-1830 in Germany. He is my g grandfather, my Dad's "Grandaddy Bill." We know that William's father was born in Germany and died before 1870, but we do not have a name. Sophia shows up as a widow on the 1870 census and mother to Charles, Frances, William, and Albert, but I can't find a father's name for William born in Alabama on October 21, 1861. The family was from Baltimore and returned to Baltimore but was in Alabama at the time of William's birth. Thanks for any help! Carol
