I have a William Burkes as William Hoslin's father. He was born abt 1787 in AL.
It looks like we are cousins. William Riley (brother of Sarah Eliza) is my great-great grandfather. William R. only had two children who lived past childhood. My great grandmother Icie (1896 - 1967) and her brother Riley Everette (1898-1972).
