Find A Grave contributor 47250960 provided the following: Birth and death data and his full name William Thomas Toalston.

From a typed document from the Carroll Co Historical Society on Marriages and Deaths, page 25.
May 29, 1891. William Toalston of Fox township died after an illness of a very few days, Wednesday evening last. His age was about 77 years. Interment at Glade Run by the side of his former wives

Find A Grave contributor 46916250 provided the following:

He is believed to have been the son of William Tolson (1785-1830?) and Nancy Coleman Tolson (1790-1840?) of Tuckerhoe Creek, Caroline County, Maryland, which is near Delaware, which might explain why William gave either the state of Delaware or Maryland as his birthplace. Joseph Tolson (1810-1888) of Salineville, has long been accepted by Toalston researchers as William's older brother. Family tradition says the two left Maryland shortly after the death of their father and walking the Old National road, made their way to Carroll County, Ohio in 1831, walking on foot most of the way, with the company only of a family dog that went with them on their journey. This story came from a descendant of Joseph. William had a farm of 325 acres. I have most of the will of William, you can find all but a few sections on under his name. Richard Lewis, an ex Navy man in Canton did a lot of research on the family around 2002, and believes the family goes back to Alexander Towson, a slaveholder in Maryland who died in 1670 and who was from Sweden.

In loving memory of my third great-grandfather, who made the search to link his family such a challenge, by having two wives named Elizabeth (it took me a while to catch on) and darting in an out of Carroll and Columbiana County, Ohio. Thomas Lee Woodwar...(Read more)
