Does anyone have a clue on this family? The wills of the Mother and son William are written in Gates County, NC. The son William was left as Guardian for his younger siblings so they were under age when he died in 1864. A witness to his will was Wiley Parker and William states that his "cosin" was James H. Benton. Any clues anyone? How about the Arnold researchers?
