My g.g.grandfather was William F. Pride, born 1827 in either TN or KY. I've found him on the census back through 1850, but no sign of him before that time on the census or on the net. He married Brunetta Jane Mason, and they had 6 children (Elizabeth F., Mary W., Brunttie A., Harvey Hanson, John L., and Halcot Alexander(my g.grandfather)). I latched onto the Halcot in my ggrandfather's name, which is also in my grandfather's name and found the William Pride/Jane Halcott family, but am unable to find the missing generations between my g.g.grandfather and that family.
Does anyone have any information on the parents of William F. Pride? I would appreciate any information you can give me. Thanks!
