Born Dec 8 1856, North Carolina.2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10  

William was totally blind.11  However, he was not blind as a child, as he was shown in the 1870 census (age 13) with no notation that he was blind (as there should have been if he was then blind); he was also listed as a laborer,5 which would seem unlikely if he had been blind at that time.
