Not much is known about his family except that William probably had at least 2 brothers (George & David):
1. George Baty (born abt 1773-78; m April 7, 1802, Livingston Co., KY to Isabel Farsythe)
2. David Baty (born abt 1779-85; in 1801 he was age 16-20 and living in Livingston Co., KY. He m Neoma ? He died 1870-80 in McLennon Co, TX).
His father may have been Patrick Beatty -

The marriage of William Baty & Margaret Hazel is listed in both Livingston Co & Mercer Co, KY.

Dane Beatty [prob. Daniel H. Baty, son of Wm. S.]
Margaret was 50 years old in 1819 when William Daniel was born. She already had a son named Daniel H. (b 1795, m 1818) and a son named William Samuel (b 1816). Maybe they just repeated names (or maybe Wm. Daniel is a grandson?) There is also a big gap in the ages of the children: Margaret, born 1803 & next child, Melinda, born 1813.
William died before 1823 in Ky or IL.
They may have been in IL by 1813, but probably not. Grandson, John M. Goodwin said on the 1900 census that his mother was born (1813) in IL.
By 1821 the family had moved to Pope Co., IL where some of the children married (Mary in 1821, George in 1823, Margaret in 1825). Margaret was listed there as a widow in 1825.
She moved to Oregon Co., MO with her children by 1826.
