You must be referring to the William Pendarvis of Smith County, TN. Are you certain that his parents are William and Mary Pendarvis?
William Pendarvis (1752-86), son of James Pendarvis (d.1797), and his wife Mary did have a son William, but he was born in 1784 and died in 1805. He was unmarried and childless at the time of his death. His estate was contested, and is well documented in the Charleston District, SC Equity Bills. If there was another William and Mary Pendarvis, please let me know. I am researching all Pendarvises and will gladly follow up any leads.
Mary Brent, a deceased Pendarvis researcher and descendant of William Pendarvis of Smith County, stated in a letter (or notes from a letter) found in the Calhoun County, SC Museum, that William claimed to be the only child of a Joseph Pendarvis. This seems unlikely, and she indicated that it was not a fact.
There are several candidates for William's parents, but I have yet to authenticate any.
Interested in all Pendarvis descendants, and all Pendarvis research.
