We don't know much about William Mack. The family story goes William Mack married Mary Elizabeth Nelson. Rose's older sister by 8 years. They had 6 children, 4 boys and 2 girls (one passed before the age of 1). Mary Elizabeth died 16 Feb 1925.
According to Rose Stoots (my grand mother), everyone told Mack he needed a mother for those kids. Almost 1 year later, he married Rose and they had 5 children, 4 boys and 1 girl (my mother).
Rose Stoots also told me about going to the movies every weekend with William Mack. And that she played the banjo for the family on Sunday's. We know more about her life and the lives of the children after William Mack's death.
Andrew Stoots was the step-father of William Mack Stoots, whose mother was Elizabeth. All family records of Andrew, Elizabeth and William's father were destroyed in a fire in the 1920's near the boundry of Greene Co., and Washington Co., TN
Notes 1:

Notes 2:
William's tombstone uses the 1885 date as does his death certificate. Age confirmed through driver's license and census records (1920, 1930). His death certificate confirms the maiden name of his mother but does not name his father.
