Looking for info on the father of William C. Burton of Oconee County, SC. William was born abt. 1800 in SC. His parents were both born in Virginia.

His wife was a Mary (or Mae) Gauton or Bauton, born abt 1804 in Tenn.

My line is his son Francis Taylor Burton, also of Oconee County, SC.

I would like to find William C. Burton's father, and to verify the name of his wife as either Mary/Mae Bauton/Gauton.
