At this point I'm still sticking with the William I gave you. Ephraim Pharr. Ephraim Alexander Pharr who lived in Wilcox County did not move there until after the war of 1812. He was and officer with Andrew Jackson and the first Sheriff of Wilcox County. I think he was married more than once. He married Mary Elizabeth Matthews 12 April 1819 in Greene C. Ga. There are records of a Jame B. Pharr who is said to be his son. He was born in 1810 in Alabama. Mary was b. 12 June 1790 in Greene C. Ga. It could be they were married but had never registered it such a common law. Being almost 29 when they were married in Greene C. After his first child James born 1810 it said the next child is Elizabeth Jane who is recorded in the book Pharrs and Farrs as Elizabeth Jane 2.4.29 and she was b. 4 March 1820. Almost a year after her parents marriage. The James I have is not listed in the book. But clearly he lived and died in Wilcox C. His death is 1859.

Ephraim was the son of Ephraim 2.2.3 Pharr and Jane Smith.
My notes on Ephraim 2.2.3: - 2.2.3 Ephraim recorded his will 12 July 1798 in Oglethorpe Co. He list his wife as Jane, His daughters as Mary, Elizabeth, Margaret and Jemima and one son Ephraim.- 2.3.14 Info from Pharrs and Farrs. His Will is in book A pg. 78 at Lexington, Ga. dated 7/12/1798. recorded 10/2/1798. It is signed "Ephraim Phair" His wife Jane and Alexander McEwen are named as executors. Wits: George Phillips, Miller Bledsoe, Isaac Oaks. He was a Revolutionary Soldier (See Lottery of Olgethorpe Co., Ga. 1804 p. 9) His wife had two draws as a wife of a Rev. soldier. His fathers will in 1793 left him with "one third of price of land that I sold to Nathanial Hicks and one ewe and one weather and 1/4 intrest in a wagon.
My notes on Jane Smith Pharr: - 2.2.3a Mentioned in husband will.

Ephraim 2.2.3 was a son of Edward Neddy Phair Farr.
Clearly who ever your William is he should fall under the line of Edward Neddy Phair.
