William married Elizabeth Easley Oct. 11, 1787 in Green County, SC. Together they had 8 children; William Jr. Mariumm, Dorcas, John Erwin, Caroline, Bailely, Albert, Huldah

The following obituaries from the Sumter County Whig were located in 1960 and sent to Miss Dozier by Mrs. Nelle A. Jenkins of Emelle, Alabama. Mrs. Jenkins wrote on 12 January 1960, "These papers were unearthed only last fall. They had lain in a vault in the Registrar's Office for about 115 years. In 1974, W. H. McGowen, Jr., Attorney at Law, 2025 3rd Avenue North, Birmingham, Alabama 35203, sent Easley/Anderson information from: Nelle Morris Jenkins, Pioneer Families of Sumter County, Alabama (Tuscaloosa, AL: Willo Publishing Company, 1961). They are as follows:"

"Died Mr. William Anderson, Sen., 80 years of age, Friday night 11 Feb 1845. He had been to Livingston that day attending to business. He went home with half a dozen friends, ate a hearty supper and soon after without a sigh, moan or a groan he fell to the floor a helpless corpse. He was a zealous and devoted friend.: a kind and affectionate husband, father, and master; he was emphatically an honest man. He had children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to mourn his death."

Mrs. Jenkins also stated that William Anderson was Postmaster at Pushmataha, AL.

Jenkins, p. 184.
"William Anderson was first cousin of Robert Anderson for whom Anderson County, South Carolina was named; William's parents were John and Ann (Erwin) Anderson--Ann's parents were Matthew Erwin and wife of Augusta County, Virginia; John Anderson's parents were James and Jean Anderson who immigrated from Scotland to Philadelphia, Penn., thence to Augusta County, Virginia. William Anderson was closely related to John Anderson of Greenville County, South Carolina, who was killed along with his sons Joshua and Scarlett and from whom Vincent Anderson, who died 7 April 1833 in Sumter County, was descended."
