Julia and William were apparently double counted in 1850, being with their mother as well as in the household of Letty Earnest.

This was his sister Julia. William would seem to be her nephew, William's son. If so, William would be William Thornton. Sarah was apparently Sarah E. Allen, not Whitney.
