It would seem that William was a deputy sheriff, and sheriff, during the Civil War. There is a file in the Confederate Papers Relating to Citizens or Business Firms, 1861-65, NARA M346.

He was paid $30 for each arrest.
One of the deserters was Jesse Robinson of Co. A, 44th VA Regt. Another was Wm. O. Davis, Co. K, 44th VA Regt.

He appears to living next door to a Haden couple I cannot identify:
....John S. [the name and relationship is written over - the relationship looks more like "Kid" or "Bid" than anything else] This John was born Dec 1868 and is 31 years old, a merchant - that could be the age of the youngest son, called Benjamin in previous censuses. John's wife's name seems to be spelled "Lysle" and she was born Aug 1876, age 23. They had been married for two years.
