    Notes 
    • Children's names from his will of 1811 per Mrs. Frances Bennett of Austi n, Texas

      Frances Bennett Notes: We are not absolutely certain he was born in Scotland, but believe so. Sti ll researching this. Lawrence Dade Greenlaw in memoirs tells that his gra ndfather (sic great-grandfather) was a Scotsman by birth and that he ca me to the U.S. in the merchantman MacBeth; however, many things besides t he relationship of grandfather are incorrect in Lawrence Dade's memoirs, a nd the Edinburgh, Scotland, register has no record of a ship by the na me of MacBeth or McBeth. As of Mar 24, 1997, no definite information is a vailable about William's parents, but there are several clues.
