  • Notes 
    • Lived in AR, around Polk county. Had a saw mill with Zenas TENNYSON. Bill died of blood poisoning. He got a splinter building a table. His wife took the splinter out with a needle. He then went on that day to butcher a hog. Perhaps he got infected then.

      1870 Census lists him as Wm. J.B. Tennison and says he was born in Alabama.
