I'm looking for anyone who might have any information on the family of Bill Read and Rebecca McFarlin. I have been able to find no information on Bill (I'm assuming Bill is short for William?) at all. All I know is that he abandoned the family prior to 1880. The only record I've been able to find of him is the death certificates for his children. He was apparently born in Virginia, probably in the 1830-1840s. Bill and Rebecca had five known children; Martha, Louella, Elijah, James, and John. Any info on this family would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You, Dylan Scruggs
