Michael, I think you are right on with your thinking.  I have never had anything for William son of James, but I agree with you that this has to be him. I decided to check family trees at Ancestry and this William is listed but with no parents given.  However, the person has him listed as William C. Cooley and I would like to see some docments that he has signed to see if the middle C is just his mark.

They wre living next to the Ballingers: --quote-- Randolph County - Series: M704 Roll: 229 p 283 William Cooley     210001-00001     2 males 0-4    William Cooley (c1835-)     1 male 5-9    James Cooley (c1833-)     1 male 30-39    William Cooley     1 female 20-29    Sarah J Ballinger (2nd wife) --edquote-- And compare to this: --quote-- 1850 > MISSOURI > MACON > 52-DIST Series: M432 Roll: 405 Page: 179 William Cooley 47 SC Sarah J " 33 SC James " 17 MO William " 15 MO Martha " 8 MO Jonathan " 5 MO Casseldana " 3 MO Sarah J " 6/12 MO Living next door is John Ballenger, 67, born VA. --endquote-- William married Sarah Nallinger 1839, his second wife. I have this William placed as a son of James, but he is too old to have been James's son. The only other place he fits is as a son of Perrin, which provides a tad more sense to the early census records (1800 and 1810) for him. But, for Perrin, I have the William born 1819 who married Andrews. Iyt's my contention, now, that -he- was James's son. Any thoughts? -Michael -- <a href="">distlist 0.9</a> See for list information.
