Could Jonathan Dunham (1739-1813) have a son William?

Still cannot find the parents of my William B Dunham, 1789-1871, born most likely in New York. He married Lurena Sawtell who lived in Scipio, New York. Her grandfather, John Sawtell, owned a tavern in Binghamton, New York. Seems Jonathan and Mary Reno fit the bill as his parents timewise and some of the names of his children were also names William and Lurena gave theirs. But everything I find says Catherine was the last child born to Jonathan and Mary. Did Jonathan have a brother who lived in the area? William enlisted in the War of 1812 in what is now Monroe County New York. But in 1814 he is being cared for by his wife Lurena in Buffalo. (The Sawtells moved to Buffalo around that time.) Any help would be much appreciated.
