Births and deaths were not typically recorded in a formal manner then. The Pickens County courthouse burned in 1876 destroying records prior to that date. If he had a complex estate, it is possible (although not probable) that it was still in probate at that time. If so, records from that date forward should still be available. You can contact the Probate Judge's office to find out.

Your best bet for birth and/or death records would be from a family bible if one exists. Suggest you go to the Williams family forum and ask if any descendant has one. Church records from that time are rare, although Charleston would be one of the towns where they might be a little more common. Knowing his religion might narrow the search some.
