Perhaps you don't have some of what follows - I've been slowly building files, but I still have some holes to fill.
William Gotcher (Goucher, etc.) Stanphill was known widely as "Uncle Billy." He was born in Tennessee (around McMinnville) in 1813, and died in Franklin County, Alabama, in 1901. As an aside, he was quite a character. His parents were Vincent (or Vinson) Stanphill, born in Surry County, NC, in 1784, and Anna Gotcher, born in Pendleton, SC, in 1785. Vincent's father was James Stanphill, born in Surry County, NC, in 1753, and his mother was named Fanny (I don't know her last name or birth place and date). James was a Revolutionary War veteran - Fanny received a pension when he died in 1840 - he was a Sgt. in the Rev. army.
Uncle Billy's first wife was Elizabeth Malloy, born 1814, died 1866, and their children were:
Daniel Pumphry Stanphill, Sr. (my great-grandfather) 1836
Francis Marinda, 1834
Delphia Jane, 1838
Vinson Carroll, 1840
James M., 1843
Uncle Billy's second wife was your great-great-grandmother, Nancy Swain. Their children were:
Margie (your great-grandmother), 1867
William Riley, 1875
William Riley Stanphill was Fred's father - William's wife was Anna Garrison
On the Indian question, the only one of the Stanphill wives I know of who claimed Indian ancestry was Mary Frances Sullinger, Daniel Pumphry Stanphill, Jr.'s first wife - she was, we think, one half Choctaw.
I have a lot more info about most of these people, if you are interested. Easier, probably, to exchange it in ways more user friendly than chat room notes.
