pdq — thanks for the correction. A North Carolina bluegrasser told me Bill was born In either Yancy or Madison County, NC, but his parents moved to Kentucky just days after he was born. I don't think it's germane to our discussion here, but it would be interesting to nail it down exactly. Biographies (obviously) get buggered around by some people.
