For those descending from this William who have an interest in joining DAR I found the following Ancestor Record for Rachel McGuire Lewis - known daughter of William. She is mentioned as predeceasing William in the following 1837 court record. It is likely anyone who can demonstrate lineage to Rachel or any of the other children mentioned here would be eligible. (I am a descendant but do not have an interest myself.)
Tazewell County, Court Law Orders, Feb 1832 to Dec 1841:
