I am currently looking for more information at this time. I would appreciate any information at all as the tiniest of pieces can open so many more doors!
I am descended from William via Emmett Oden via Mildred, who was my grandmother.
Some pieces I've gathered along the way:
-May have had a sister Julia
-one person says could have been 6-8 years after he was born that the family came over
-family story that the parents passed on the ship while William was very young
-possibly resided in a Catholic run orphanage
-was not adopted
I'm working on searching, so any details can help!
