He was referred to as Jr to distinguish him from his uncle William Gordon Sr. William Gordon Jr's wife was Elizabeth Spurgeon. I would guess that Phebe Spurgeon was probably her mother. Elizabeth may have been kin in some way to Sarah Spurgeon who m Joseph Floyd. The Gordons and Floyds intermarried heavily. Catharine Medlin on the 1860 census was William's sister Catherine Gordon, wife of John Medlin. Both were named in the will of Joseph Gordon d 1844 (wife Eve Myers). Joseph Gordon was named in the 1833 will of James Gordon. The wills for Joseph Gordon and James Gordon can be found on the Gordon forum.

A family submitted to ancestry.com gives Salome Sarah Sechrist's parents as Christian Sechrist and Maria Barbara Myers. I don't know how reliable this is and it should certainly be verified with records. But IF this is correct, the family connects to the Gordons again through Eve Myers, wife of Joseph Gordon.

Davidson Co DB 8 p 273 Christian Seachrist and wife Barbara Seachrist, Caty Myers, John Myers, George Myers, Daniel Myers, Christian Myers, heirs and legatees of Jacob Myers dec'd - quit claim to our sister Eve Gordon - 21 acres. 3 Jan 1832.
