I cam up with another posibility on who the father of William could be. Jonathan 2.2.9 Pharr b. bef 1778 in Virginia. Parents were Edward Neddy 2.1.1 Phair and Rachel Beard. I'm told Jonathan d. 1829 Pulaski C. Ark. His wife is given as Ester and some think her maiden name was Thomas. They had 3 known sons. 1. Francis 2.3.38 b 1796 2. Samuel 2.3.39 b. 1798 3. David 2.3.40 b. 1800. More than likely all were b. Elbert C. Ga. Samuel mar. Lucy Ellen Pentecost abt 1831 so I don't think he is the father. David mar. Elizabeth Bailey 1821 Warrenton, Miss. so I don't think he could be the father. That leaves Francis. He has no know records besides his father. He could have died as a child? He is old enough to be the father of William. Johonathan had 6 brothers and one of them was the Ephraim who was the father of Ephraim Alexander 2.3.14.
Jonathan is said to have been mar. twice. His second wife is unknown.
Johonathan 2.2.9 Pharr:
-2.2.9 From the book Pharrs and Farrs was born in Virginia before his father, Edward moved to Meck Co. NC about 1779 following the death of his wife Rachel Beard. Edward and his family was in Wilkes Co. Ga. in March 1784 where he was evidently married. The son 2.3.8 Francis is named in the will of 2.2.38 Francis Pharr (brother of Jonathan) as his legal heir. The other two sons Samuel and David, are named in the "bill of sale" of slaves in Texas Previously mentioned as the sole heir of Jonathan Pharr. He is a Justice of the peace in Elbert County, Ga. in 1797 and held court in that year (see land grant book in Elbert co. 1791-1822. In 1803 however he was captain of his militia Dist. in Jackson Co. Ga. A Jonathan Pharr is mentioned in Herdon's Centennial History of Arkansas, 1932 published by S. J. Clarke publishing of Chicago, as one of the early settlers in about 1817 to 1829 of Pyeatsville, Pulaski Co. Ark. As he seem to have 'a wanderlust" bent he probley moved with other Pharrs to Mississippi where David married Elizabeth Bailey. (See 2.3.40)

There is a Jonathan Phair on 1809 Jackson Tax Digest age 35.
Between 1810 and 1815 this minister of the gospel settledat the upper end of Crystal Hill, adjoining the Pyeatt's, William Lockwood and Jonathan Pharr. Mr. Carnahan preached sermonsat Arkansas Post in 1811, and was doubtless the first protestantpreacher to make a permanent residence in Arkansas.William Patterson, the father-in-law of Daniel Mooney and Sylvanus Philipps, is traditionally assigned to the ministry of theMethodist church, and if he really was a preacher the credit ofliving first in Arkansas belongs to him, and goes back to 1803.48, 49
Pioneers and Makers of Arkansas
There also was a Jonathan Pharr on the 1820 census for Louisiana.
I understand Arkansas was part of Louisiana before it was carved into states. David's wife Elizabeth was kin to the family that owned Kings ranch I'm told. They had a son named Augustus who was born after his father died. He is well documented and fought against Mexico. He later served in the Confederate army. Samuel is also mentioned. He is shown on the 1850 and 1860 Ft. Bend C. Tx census. He did not get married till over 30 years old. He and Lucy wee married at Austins Colony, Brazoria C. Tx. So Samuel and Francis could be Williams father. Samuel did have a son with Lucy named William. I will look up that 1820 Louisiana census and list what I find. David
