William Henry Singleton's second wife, Charlotte Hinman, was from one of the principal families of the Sandy Ground settlement on Staten Island.

William wrote the following about his two wives in his "Recollections of My Slavery Days,"..."It was in New Haven, too, that I married my wife. She was a Northern girl, Maria Wanton. Our married life was very happy. We had one daughter. She is married and lives in New Haven. Her husband's name is Chart Fitch. She is the mother of eight children, two of whom died in infancy. The other six are all active, healthy boys. My wife died in 1898. Later I married my present wife. She was Charlotte Hinman, also a Northern girl, a resident of Staten Island. She has made we a good wife and we have been very happy."
