Thomas, Rebecca or William Christian

I am looking for any information on my great grandfather Christian. My grandfather William Frank(also known as W.F. or Frank)Christian, may have lived, or been born in, Wise County. I have heard that his father was Thomas and his mother, Rebecca(Becky or Beck). He told me that his father died when he was small(1900-1910?). His mother deserted him and he was taken in by various families. An uncle said that he might have been born in Indiana, and that his name may have actually been Wiley, though S.S. office lists him as William. We are supposed to be related to Lanes and Barnettes. My grandmother's maiden name was Ollie Pearcy.
