Searching for information on William Downs, senior and junior, who appear in Orange Co., NC in 1790s. They were also in Wake Co. NC. Moved on to Sumner Co., TN and appear there in the 1820 census. William, Sr. died in Sumner Co. in 1821, leaving a will that gave his wife's name as Mary, and named four children -- Major, William, Elizabeth, and Charity. He described himself as "old and weak," but no age given. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
