1780 - Botetourt County, Virginia
September 9, 1833 - San Felipe de Austin, Texas
Old Three Hundred colonist. William applied for a land grant with Stephen Austin's First Colony and received title to a labor of land in what is now Waller County on August 24, 1824. He arrived in Texas shortly afterward and was living near Austin's provincial capital in San Felipe by January. Nothing more is known of him until his death nine years later of unknown causes.
Note: This is a cenotaph. During the Texas revolution, the entire town of San Felipe was burned to the ground, destroying all of the wooden grave markers. So although William Pryor is known to be buried in this cemetery, the exact location has been lost.
