In 1850, the following Cartwright families were enumerated. In household 31, we find William Cartwright and family. William stated that he was 40 years of age and was born in Tennessee. Another record states that his birth date and place as February 1, 1810 in Smith County Tennessee; parents were James and Jane (—) Cartwright. 

In this household were the following: Elizabeth, age 38  (was Elizabeth Kirby, born September 1812, in Smith County Tennessee); Nancy(?), age 19; Mahala, age 16; James, age 13; Sarah, age 11; John, age 9; William, age 8; Susan, age 6; Mary, age 4; Elisure, age 2; and Zachary, age 1.  Not listed in the household were children Martha Jane, Samuel and Joseph Franklin. Joseph was born in 1852.

William was enumerated on the 1860 census of Dade County with a Post Office of Running Water, Tennessee. Included in this household was the child Joseph who was eight years of age.  Near William in 1850, household 38, was Oliver C. Cartwright, who was probably the brother of William.
