We need help on William Henry. It shows on his DC that he was born in Echols Co, Georgia on October 27, 1866.
Echols and the surrounds were Jarod and Moses Jr territory at that time.
There is no record of them having this person in their families.
He had been married previously, about 1887, to marrying Mamie Murray.
William Henry could also have been a baseborn son of Lavina Westberry, daughter of Jarod.Thoughts only: The only person in my database that he could be is Henry Westberry, son of Charlton.
She did have two baseborns and the article that describes her demise does state;
” a woman whose character was not suppose to be beyond reproach”.
It was rumored that Charlton’s wife, Martha, headed to that area (Florida-Echols on the border) and hooking up with a Padgett.
Or, did Charlton head that way with her and have this kid? Florida was somewhat of a sanctuary for deserters.
( I do not believe that Charlton died on the day he deserted, but did die before 1869)
