William Palmer 1810 Gloucester Co., Va.

Thought I would post here too ! ......I am interested in locating information on William Palmer of Gloucester County ,Virginia.What I have is based on 1810 Gloucester Co. Federal Census. William was born between 1765 and 1784,where is unknown. His wife was also born between 1765 and 1784. Her name is unknown except for what is listed on my Great,Great,Great Grandfather's death certificate.It says William & S. Palmer. Her name could be Sarah or Sally ! There is a marriage listed in Henrico County for a William and Sarah {Wood} Palmer , 2 June 1787. I have no proof this is the right family though.
In 1810 William and his wife had 8 children.There were 6 boys and 2 girls. My GGG Grandfather Vernon was the youngest.He was born in Gloucester in 1810. In 1814 there is an insurance claim for land in the county for William. The family diappears after this.I can only assume that William died. In 1830 a Lewis Palmer appears in Gloucester with 2 males 20-29 1 female 20-29 and 1 female 60-69. Vernon was married in1835 and appears in the county in the 1840 census with his family. Lewis could have been his older brother.
What I would like to know is this: Does anyone have any information about this family. Bible records could help alot if they exist. I have all info on Vernon and his family and can trace my line to his. I would appreciate info on his siblings if possible and on William and his wife. Since all records were burned by the retreating Confederate Army, all that is left is oral history and bible records. Thanks for your time and I would appreciate any info.
