William Bingham was the son of Samuel & Ursula (Granville) Bigham. We do not know why he added the "n" to his last name. He married Jane Gilmore about 1806 in NC. They moved to Bedford County, TN in 1816. William & Jane had ten children: Samuel, Ann, William, Margaret, Mary, David, Sarah, Caroline, John Davidson & Nancy.
William, Jane & their daughter, Ann (Bingham) Parker are buried in the Bingham Cemetery located on one of the highest peakes in northeast Bedford County. Family tradition is William ask to be buried standing up with a rock in each hand to fight off the devil.
