Bill Pye— Born about 1865 in Alabama. We know very little about him except that his mother was born in Virginia. He died in Birmingham, Ala (after being remarried) with a whole new family.

After their father left the family (between 1910—1920) their mother, Ella, raised them until her death at which time the Fortune family took the children and raised daddy and some of the siblings.
